Best Bets: Celeste Barber

Saturday, Nov. 17


An actor, comedian and social media superstar, Australian Celeste Barber has found fame as “a real mom” on Instagram — by parodying celebrity photographs. She recreates celebrity Instagram pics, magazine photos and product ads to highlight how far they fall from her reality. In her live show experience, she explains the story behind some of her most famous images; her new relationship with famous people; and the stalkers, fans and comments that get under her skin. She also discusses the pitfalls of being married to a husband hotter than she is, and what it’s like to be an Anti-Influencer.
