I first discovered the comedic stylings of Australian comic Celeste Barber during the pandemic, thanks to the recommendation of a friend. Her parodies of models and celebrities (like this, this and this) in an Instagram vs. reality format had me laughing out loud. That’s why you can only imagine my delight when the Netflix algorithm served me Wellmania, Barber’s first-ever streaming series, a dramedy about a self-destructive food blogger who has to get her health back on track.
In a nutshell? The series is a total delight. (I binged it in less than a week.)
