Comedy Award Winner Rose Matafeo is set to record her first filmed, hour-long special of the smash hit, critically-acclaimed show Horndog to be captured over two performances at The Ambassadors Theatre on Friday 17th January at 7pm & 9:30pm. Tickets are on sale and can be found here.
A whirlwind of stand-up, sketch and mid 20s angst, Horndog has enjoyed multiple, sold-out runs at Leicester Square Theatre and Soho Theatre, as well as successful performances around the world with sell-out shows at the New Zealand International Comedy Festival and a Barry Award nominated run at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, before being crowned Best Show at the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Awards 2018. The show was simultaneously highlighted as one of the best shows at the Fringe in the Guardian, Vogue, Evening Standard, The Mirror, Chortle, and British Comedy Guide.
Building momentum over the past year, Rose has established herself as one of the most exciting new voices in comedy and a regular face on our screens having written and starred in the three part series Rose Matafeo: Temp for Channel 4’s Comedy Blaps, as well as featuring on Taskmaster (Dave), Have I Got News For You (BBC One), The Royal Variety Performance (ITV 1), 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4) Unspun with Matt Forde (Dave), Ultimate Worrier (Dave), Hypothetical (UKTV), Edinburgh Nights (BBC Two), and The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice (Channel 4) in the UK, and Conan (TBS) in the US. In New Zealand Rose was the head writer and star of Funny Girls (TV3), a regular on panel show 7 Days (Three Now NZ), and has written and starred on New Zealand comedy show Jono And Ben At Ten (TV3, NZ).
Rose is currently working on her debut sitcom Starstruck with BBC Three which has been picked up internationally with HBO Max in the U.S., ABC in Australia, and TVNZ in New Zealand. Rose has acted in BBC One’s W1A, BBC Three’s web series Pls Like and Climaxed, ABC’s Squinters, Three’s Funny Girls, and the feature film Baby Done which is set to release in 2020.
