23rd AUG – from 5pm
Author of “The Anti-Cool Girl”
The Healing Power of Comedy
In 2014, Rosie became a household name with her hilarious recaps of The Bachelor, and we’ve never looked back with our love for her. Rosie has survived the very worst that life can throw at you but she’s always maintained that laughter is the best medicine. Her irreverent humour has been applied to topics from awkward sex to body image and mental health, all topics we’ll be discussing on this not-to-be-missed night with Rosie.
The conversation will be followed by an intimate meet & greet with Rosie and a book signing for her books.
Join us for the sixth event in the Institute of Interesting Ideas Winter Series, Kiama. Tickets from $55

In 2014, Rosie became a household name with her hilarious recaps of The Bachelor. Her irreverent humour has been applied to topics from awkward sex to body image and mental health, as told in her nationwide tour My Life on the Couch (with Vodka) in 2016. The following year saw the release of her second book, Every Lie I’ve Ever Told, her second national tour Crazy Lady, and her podcast Mum Says My Memoir is a Lie, in which Rosie and her mother discussed their differing perspectives on the events of her first book in a frank, emotional, and often hilarious way. The podcast has been downloaded more than 3.5 million times, and won the ACRA Award for Best Original Podcast. Rosie is making use of her formal qualifications by developing several projects including her first novel.
