As a teen, Rosie was once so depressed she didn’t leave her room for three months and only ate Doritos and bottled water. She accidentally started watching Strangers With Candy and was so inspired by the beauty, that her tears turned into non stop laughing (and farting.) She hasn’t been able to stop laughing or farting ever since! Rosie has since left her bed room and her hometown to live her dreams in NYC as a person who “laughs and farts all the time”. Rosie has been performing comedy of all sorts since she got to New York five years ago with nothing but the belongings she could fit on her back, which included: a ton of clothes, computers, a bed, a couch, a fully stocked kitchen, designer boots, a very long kitchen island from ikea and a mini jacuzzi. Rosie hasn’t eaten a Dorito in five years–she is completely cured and has moved on to puffy cheese doodles!!!!
