Question time: Comedian Rose Matafeo

Rose Matafeo
ROSE MATAFEO
The 23-year-old comedian is the funny bone of TV3’s sketch comedy show Jono & Ben…

Top of my bucket list is… an underlined title saying ‘BUCKET LIST’ in four types of pen colour. And then a list of my top 10 favourite buckets.

My go-to party outfit is… a cute dress and a surly attitude.

I envy… people whose hair smells good. You walk past someone and smell their nice hair and you know that’d never happen for you.

My ultimate dinner party guest: I would like to sit next to Steve Martin.

If I was brave enough, I would… have said hello to Ethan Hawke that one time he walked past me in the IMAX food court.

My favourite book is… Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.

In my handbag right now… pen and paper and a lot of loose pieces of strawberry gum.

I feel content when… I’m lying in bed watching Netflix with nothing to write and no deadlines or alarm.

The song that always makes me want to dance is… ‘I Wanna Be Your Lover’ by Prince.

The person I most admire is… my nan. She’s 70-something and just went on a solo cruise to see the Northern Lights!

The most rewarding thing I’ve ever done is… started going to therapy. Mental health is cool!

The places in the world I’d most like to visit… Japan, Italy, Croatia, Antarctica and Te Atatu Peninsula.

The reason I got into this job was… I was a moderately confident teenager who liked comedy.

The best thing about winter… having an actual excuse to stay inside in bed all day.

The person whose style I most admire is… Katharine Hepburn. I love me some pants.

I would like to do more… dancing. And I’d like to give more compliments. And hugs. I don’t do that too much.

The word people most use to describe me is… hungry.
