South African born Urzila Carlson is a multi-award winning Stand Up comedian who appears regularly on television shows in Australia and New Zealand.
Urzila’s natural cheeky, straight up style will have you eating out of her hand the moment she takes the stage and you’ll want to be her friend. Internationally a sought-after act, both as a stand-up headliner and as an MC. Since taking the comedy stage in 2008 she has had 5 sold out seasons at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, television appearances on Spicks and Specks, Dirty Laundry, Have You Been Paying Attention, The Great Debate with Barry Humphries, Comedy Up Late as a guest and a host, and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Galas. Urzila has also sold out festival shows in Perth, Sydney and Adelaide Comedy Festivals, and performed for Just For Laughs at The Sydney Opera House. In New Zealand she has sold out every solo show she’s had since 2009!
Every time you hear ‘studies have shown’ you know you’re about to learn something ridiculous! Studies have shown your dog is happier than your cat! Who cares? How about they give funding to scientists to come up with a way to eradicate the unibrow or those weird thin white hairs you occasionally find attached to your face! Let’s get some research done on what happens to your blood pressure when your kid keeps getting out of bed when you’ve tucked them in 20 times already!
