Berk’s Nest Present

Rose Matafeo Is

Finally Dead

Pleasance Attic: 3rd – 28th August

2016 Barry Award Best Newcomer – Nominee

Mourn the loss of New Zealand’s brightest rising star at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe as Rose Matafeo is Finally Dead. From the 3rd to the 28th August Rose will be hosting her own funeral at the Pleasance Attic at 5.45pm.

Produced by Berk’s Nest, Rose Matafeo’s debut show at this year’s Fringe 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. 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. Rose has performed at the New Zealand Comedy Festival where Finally Dead enjoyed a sold out run. She was nominated for the Barry Award for Best Newcomer at the 2016 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
