Comedian Celeste Barber left stunned after hearing husband’s feedback on her new Netflix series: ‘Can you say that again?’
Comedian Celeste Barber has received an early review of her new comedy series Wellmania from her husband Api Robin.
The 40-year-old said that Api praised the series after they watched a handful of episodes at home together.
‘And I was like, “We’re four episodes in, we’ve been together for 20 years and it’s taken you this long to tell me that I’m really good,” she joked in an interview with 7Life on Saturday.
In Wellmania, which begins streaming on March 29, Celeste plays Liv, a woman who embarks on a strict ‘wellness journey’ after a doctor diagnosed her with a ‘catastrophic’ bill of health.
Describing her husband as ‘hot’, Celeste said she was thrilled with Api’s verdict on her performance.

Inspired by Brigid Delaney’s novel Wellmania: Misadventures in the Search for Wellness, Celeste is also serving as executive producer on the eight-part series.
It is also the perfect fit for the comic as she often mocks celebrities and influencers on Instagram for portraying an unrealistic image of beauty.
And Celeste couldn’t be happier than her social media fame has landed her a show on Netflix.
‘I know that sounds ridiculous,’ she said.
‘But I’ve kind of always been like, ”I feel like I live inside a reality TV show that no one’s watching” and I’ve worked so hard to get to this point…I’m like, ”yes”, now that it’s here. So I’m pumped.’
Barber’s own stand-up comedy special is also set to air on Netflix this year
