ROSE MATAFEO:
SASSY BEST FRIEND

Sassy Best Friend

Sassy best friend (sas-ee best frend)
1. A sidekick to the main character in a romantic comedy;
2. not conventionally attractive, quirky, hard to love;
3. sometimes not white, often gay.

For the 2017 NZ International Comedy Festival, Rose Matafeo returns home with a show inspired by her favourite film heroes and her terrible taste in movies. Sassy Best Friend is about friendship, finding yourself and giving up on your dreams.

NOMINEE – Barry Award Best Newcomer 2016, Melbourne Comedy Fest

Silly, charismatic and packed with great gags.
