Winner of the Chortle Student Comedy Award 2015, as well as finalist in the 2014 Leicester Square New Act of the Year, Andy has made an impact on the comedy scene with his unique style and fresh approach to traditional stand up.
A regular at festivals such as Latitude, Leefest and Secret Garden Party, Andy is fast becoming a familiar face at top comedy clubs around the country. He has hosted his own webseries in the Tub, in which he interviewed up-and-coming bands in the bath (of course). He has a Masters in Creative Writing from Brunel.
Following on from a successful run in Edinburgh of his 2016 show Roar, and as part of the prestigious The Lunchtime Special show at The Tron, Andy will be returning to Edinburgh in 2017 with a brand new hour of sketch meets stand up.
“Andy Field is a talented and silly performer who will make you laugh for an hour” Festmag
“He has a surreal outlook, a set packed full of proper punchlines and a nerdy glee in sharing it.” Steve Bennett, Chortle
Rose has written, produced and starred in New Zealand’s TV3 comedy Funny Girls, a six part TV sketch series featuring a team of talented female writers and performers. Rose has just finished serving as head writer for the show’s second season, which is currently airing.
In 2016, Rose has been nominated for Best Newcomer at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and also made her Edinburgh debut this year with her show Finally Dead, which enjoyed success from both audiences and critics. The Guardian described it as “an emphatic start to Matafeo’s fringe career”.
Rose started stand-up at the age of 15 and has since staged five solo shows as part of the New Zealand International Comedy Festival. In 2010 she won Best Newcomer at the NZICF, going on to win the prestigious Billy T Award in 2013. Her sold out show Finally Dead saw her add extra shows and a return season in NZ.
She has performed regularly alongside a cast of improvisers at the popular late night improv show SNORT in Auckland, and has opened for Reggie Watts both in NZ and the UK.
Rose has featured on the 2014 and 2015 NZ International Comedy Gala, has written and starred in the NZ comedy sketch show Jono & Ben as well as regularly appearing on the NZ panel show 7 Days. As part of Jono and Ben, she’s been lucky enough to interview the likes of Amy Poehler, Jim Carrey, Bill Hader and Amy Schumer.
Don’t miss the chance to see Rose try out new material for her next Edinburgh Fringe show.
Reviews of Rose’s debut Edinburgh show, ‘Finally Dead’
From the reference points to the props and the music, the whole thing feels as fresh and invigorating as an ice-cold bottle of Steinlager. This debut solo show is one of the undoubted highlights of the Fringe.” *****
“…a blizzard of youthful energy in one of the Fringe’s most memorable comedy debuts”

You might have seen or heard Matt in Cradle to Grave, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, Inspector Steine, The Now Show, The News Quiz, Doctors, Two Pints of Lager or even sat next to Harvey Keitel in an advert. He's also an acclaimed stand up comedian and looking forward to a new show bursting with new jokes, new ideas and absolutely no nudity. No one wants to see that. It's Work in Progress, so who knows what it will feature? There will probably be a story about getting a massage on holiday. That's a good one.
