As a rule 15-year olds don’t win national comedy awards, but Rose Matafeo was an exception. Six years on and a rookie no more, the new It-girl of New Zealand comedy has a legion of fans and a Billy-T award to boot. An endearing quirkiness and her vintage style make Rose stand out from the crowd. Years of standup comedy and her experience hosting live TVNZ music and news show ULive makes Rose a popular and professional MC or presenter. When she’s not making us laugh the comedienne and movie buff is busy writing her movie blog, Tweeting her witty thoughts for the day, or chilling out at home watching cooking shows on TV with her cat.
"“Rose was right on the money , fun and engaging and added her own flavour to the event . Could not have done any better.”—
