Rose
Matafeo

Comedian

Winner of Best Show at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018, Rose Matafeo is a comedian, writer, director and actor and a rising star in her field. Her quirky, hilarious performances are a great choice for corporate events and her friendly and relatable style is guaranteed to win over audiences of all kinds.

Following its success in Edinburgh, Rose’s 2018 show Horndog was nominated for Best Show again at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. This kick-started a huge rise in Rose’s an international following and, in May 2019, she made her US TV debut with a stand-up performance on iconic late-night talk show, Conan (TBS).

Away from stand-up, Rose’s own sitcom, Starstruck, airs on BBC3 in the UK and HBO Max in the US in 2021, as well as being picked up in both Australia and her native New Zealand. On top of writing the show, Rose plays the lead role; a millennial in London juggling two dead-end jobs and navigating the awkward morning-after-the-night-before when she wakes up next to a film star. The show was commissioned for a second series even before filming had commenced for the first.

Already a regular face on UK screens, Rose starred in series 9 of Dave/Channel 4’s hit game show Taskmaster. She has also appeared on The Royal Variety Performance (ITV), Have I Got News For You, W1A (BBC One), 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice (Channel 4), Unspun with Matt Forde, and Jon Richardson’s Ultimate Worrier (Dave).

In New Zealand, Rose has written, produced and starred in three series of TV3 comedy Funny Girls, as well as being a regular on panel show 7 Days (Three Now NZ). She also starred in the feature Baby, Done (Piki Films) and co-hosts the podcast Boners of the Heart with Alice Snedden.

 

Oh my Lord, Rose had us rolling in the aisles. She was superb and very, very lovely too. Please pass on all our thanks to her!
