In 2013 she was invited to perform at the prestigious Just for Laughs festival in Montreal. 2014 has seen her lastest show nominated for the presitigious Barry Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. 

“Celia Pacquola is Adam Hills with ovaries, using her magnetic charisma to draw audiences in to a warmly uplifting show that’s as inspiring as it is hilarious.  I'd defy anyone not to leave… just a little more in love with life – and with her – than before.” Chortle.co.uk

Celia is also an accomplished and natural actor, and in 2014 Celia will be starring in a new Working Dog production, Utopia. This follows on from her roles in the Logie award winning and highly acclaimed offbeat Australian drama series, Offspring on Network Ten and AACTA Best Comedy TV Series award winner, ABC TV black comedy Laid.

“Pacquola has a well-established comedy career… here, she proves to be an instinctive and deadpan funny actress.” The Age, Green Guide

As a writer, Celia has contributed to publications such as The Age newspaper and to various radio projects, including BBC Radio in the UK.

“Endlessly charming, furiously honest and beautifully written stand-up from the Aussie”
The Independent, (UK).

“Her delivery is sleek, her jokes are bang on.” Aussietheatre.com
