Celia Pacquola


Celia Pacquola is a chameleon – a stand up comedian, writer and actor who springs effortlessly between stage and screen and has become one of our best-loved and most in-demand performers in any genre.

Celia has been nominated twice for the Melbourne Comedy Festival Award and won the Amused Moose and Helpmann Awards. Three of her solo shows have been recorded as specials: The Looking Glass (Stan, 2018); All Talk (Amazon Prime, 2020) and Let Me Know How It All Works Out (Paramount+, 2021).

She won the Best Supporting Actress AACTA for her role as Dolly Faraday in the acclaimed ABC1 drama The Beautiful Lie. She starred in the AACTA award-winning Laid, Logie Award winning drama Offspring and in all four seasons of Working Dog’s Utopia, for which she won an AACTA Award in 2015.

Celia made her feature film debut in 2019 with the smash hit NZ film The Breaker Upperers, and her theatrical debut in the same year, starring in Black Swan State Theatre/Sydney Theatre Companies’ production of Oriel Gray’s The Torrents.

In 2016 Celia co-created, co-wrote and starred in the smash hit comedy Rosehaven with Luke McGregor for ABC-TV. Over the show’s five seasons she won the 2017 AACTA for Best Performance in a Television Comedy, was nominated twice for Most Popular Actress at the Logies, as well as garnering two AWGIES and numerous further nominations. In 2021 the much-loved series aired for its fifth and final season.


A regular on Have You Been Paying Attention, Celia appears in Binge drama series Love Me, and is writing for its second season. Nude Tuesday, a feature film in gibberish with subtitles written by Celia and Ronny Chieng, is now streaming on Stan.
