Rose Matafeo accidentally thanked an entire country in her acceptance speech after winning best comedy show at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The Kiwi comedian was unprepared because she really didn’t think she would win. But we are SO pleased she did.
Matafeo is just the fifth woman and the first solo person-of-colour to ever win the award.
Her winning show Horndog is a semi-autobiographical exploration of her love life – it’s about the “sexual frustrations of a 26-year-old Pisces nerd” who “has kissed nearly 10 men in her life”.
It was a comedy show made by a woman, about a woman, FOR women. And everyone LOVED it.
