Rose Matafeo’s new show sees her putting the fun back into funeral with an upbeat hour of comedy dedicated to her own memory. Unhappy with the fact she won’t be around for the best celebration of her life, Rose is giving herself the send-off she deserves while she’s still here on earth. You might just die of laughter.
In her home country of New Zealand Rose Matafeo is known as the star of hit TV3 shows Funny Girls, Jono and Ben and 7 Days, she also appeared in the most recent series of Have I Got News For You on BBC One. In 2013 she was awarded the Billy T Award which recognises the brightest up and coming New Zealand comedians and has previously been won by the likes of Jermaine Clement and Taika Waititi.
