Nominee Best Newcomer 2016 Melbourne International Comedy Festival
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.
NZ comedian Rose Matafeo returns with an hour of sketch and stand-up inspired by her long time obsession with romantic comedies and her favourite female film heroes. Sassy Best Friend is a show about friendship, finding confidence as a young woman and then ultimately giving up on your dreams.

'A stellar debut: silly, charismatic, and packed with great gags.' The Guardian
