Show promoter Monwabisi Grootboom spotted Celeste at the show outside the Workshop Shopping Centre. He took her under his wing, giving her a chance to showcase her unique brand of comedy across the country. Celeste entered the SABC‚Äôs ‚ÄėSo U Think U Are Funny‚Äô, a national talent search competition, and was chosen as one of the three finalists in 2008.
Celeste says she gets her inspiration from artists like Monique, who is regarded as America‚Äôs funniest woman. ‚ÄúThere are very few female stand-up comedians around the world. But Monique is unique and truly funny. I would like to be as successful as she is.‚ÄĚ
Celeste wants to make it on television next. ‚ÄúI see myself doing sitcoms in the near future.‚ÄĚ Her fans and admirers have no doubt that Celeste will make the transition successfully
