Rose Matafeo is everybody’s Sassy Best Friend - brassy, supportive, dorky, endearing and lightening-quick to a punchline. Her hour-long stand-up show is a delightful mismatch of wildly varied, relatable stories about her quest for confidence; stories about leaving her side-kick tendencies behind to become the leading lady in her own life. It’s a masterclass in call-backs, self-deprecating humour and distinctly Kiwi stand-up comedy.

The lights dim. A woop gets exalted from an effervescent crowd already bursting to see 26 Cats Destroy the Patriarchy. A parody of news show music plays and a stream of real news items rolls through the theatre. What should we do about the gender pay gap? Why are women’s rights still such a global issue? Is our Prime Minister a feminist? These questions set the tone for what the play will explore with authenticity and a range of understanding bridged over three generations.
