Rose Matafeo: 'I looked like a tiny, chubby Prince'


The writer and comedian lifts the lid on the things that make her laugh the most






Rose Matafeo.

The funniest film I’ve ever seen …

Bedazzled is a great comedy film. Dudley Moore really kills me. And the 2000 remake is funny as hell, too.

The funniest person I know …

Alice Snedden. She’s the co-host of our podcast Boners of the Heart and, to a lesser extent, my best friend. She has a law degree but chooses instead to do comedy, which makes me furious almost daily.

The funniest item of clothing I’ve ever owned …

I once bought a pretty heinous jumper at a charity shop and when I got home saw the name “GAIL” handwritten in Sharpie on the tag and thought: “That’s about right.”

The funniest hairstyle I’ve ever had …

My mum was sick of having to detangle my curly hair as a kid, so she took me to a hairdressing training school where I got a No 4 on the sides with a little bit of curl left up top to keep things interesting. I looked like a tiny, chubby Prince.

The funniest dream I’ve ever had …

I once dreamed I hit on Eddie Redmayne at a funeral. When I woke up I was very into Eddie Redmayne for one day.

The funniest number …

678-999-8212 – the phone number Soulja Boy tells you to ring if you want him to kiss U thru the phone.

The funniest joke I’ve ever heard …

John Kearns describing Jeremy Corbyn as the kind of guy whose soap is as thin as a credit card with the Imperial Leather sticker still on it.

Rose Matafeo plays Soho Theatre, W1, from 19 to 24 February
