This year, Rose Matafeo returns to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with her second solo show in as many years, Sassy Best Friend.
I first became aware of Rose when she supported Nish Kumar in London last December and when I heard that she would be performing her own hour at the Fringe, I knew I had to see her show.
Through humour, Rose is able to actually make some important point in Sassy Best Friend. As someone who isn't white, she points out how she will never be the lead in a romantic comedy, instead she'd be the sassy best friend. Hence the name of the show.
