She performed her first stand-up gig at a church in 2005. She was offered her first professional gig by Monwabisi Grootboom of 99% Zulu Comedy Show later that year. Celeste became a finalist in season 2 of SABC 1’s So You Think You’re Funny competition in 2009. She began pursuing a career in comedy a year later.

She posted a video challenging the opinion of society labelling women who have been single for a while “broken.” She said, “Society has been conditioned to think that a woman who hasn’t had a man for most of her life, like me, is a broken woman. That there’s something wrong with her. But that is so wrong it’s a distorted view of life”. Her love life has been compared to that of her character in “Looking For Love.”
