There are no shortages of jokes and ideas in a Rose Matafeo show. The 26-year-old New Zealander seemingly barely breathed in her third solo show, ‘Horndog’, which won her the Best Comedy Show award. Her fast-paced, motormouth delivery perfectly complimented her intimate, angsty themes like love-life as a millennial, teenage crushes and sleaziness in comedy. It was a high-octane hit of breezy yet personal stand-up, packed full of pop-culture references, garish Word-Art and a determined mission to meet Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos.
