LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) – Hailed in her home country as the “Australian Queen of Comedy”, Celeste Barber has announced the “Fine, Thanks” US tour. The 42-date tour hits cities including Las Vegas, Baltimore, Austin, Winnipeg, Chicago and many more.
Barber’s celebrity parody Instagram account has over 8.1 million followers, and for good reason. Big names such as Kim Kardashian, Cindy Crawford, Gwyneth Paltrow, Britney Spears, Rhianna, and many more have all had the “Barber” treatment. She boasts celebrity fans like Courteney Cox, Sharon Stone, Naomi Watts, Chelsea Handler, and many more who comment on her parody videos.
Barber won the “Funniest Lady on Instagram” award in 2017 on the digital platform WhoHaha.com, co-founded by director, actor and comedian, Elizabeth Banks. She was included in Variety’s 2019 10 Comics to Watch list and hosted the 5th Annual Daily Front Row Awards. In 2020, she won the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Award (AACTA) for Favorite Comedy Performer of the Decade and a Webby Special Achievement Award in 2021.

Barber released her best-selling book, Challenge Accepted in 2019, followed by a Showtime special of the same name. She put on the activist hat when her native Australia was ravaged by bushfires in the summer of 2019-2020. Her fundraiser brought in $51 million dollars for the Rural Fire Service and Brigades Donation Fund, grew global attention, provided high-tech equipment, and much-needed upgrades.
Barber is currently shooting her Netflix comedy, Wellmania: Misadventures in the Search for Wellness. The show centers around Liv (Barber) who experiences a major health crisis, forcing her to rethink her “live fast – die young” attitude as she dives body and head-first into a wellness journey, trying everything from the benign to the bizarre in an attempt to reclaim her old life.
The Live Nation produced tour kicks off July 6 at Durham’s Performing Arts Center and wraps up at Boston’s Shubert Theatre on August 30. Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, February 18 via Ticketmaster. The full tour itinerary is listed below.
