Kiwis just can't get enough of Urzila that they needed to add two extra shows in Auckland and end the insistent public demand.
The South African-born comedian, who made her debut in 2008, is now making regular appearances at Three's hit comedy panel show '7 Days'. Since then, she's racked up an impressive array of awards including Best Female Comedian at the 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 NZ Comedy Guild Awards, as well as Three's coveted People's Choice Award two years in a row at the NZ International Comedy Festival. This year, Urzila will be hitting the stage in support of her latest tour 'Loser' where she will share her piece of mind about being a loser and taking it on a lighter note.
"Loser is almost always negative... I've lost my keys, a relative, my mind, money, dignity… it's only positive when you lose some weight. Why? If you meet someone awesome would you not want then to be more of them? Why can your friends not see your fatness but your family and doctor can see nothing but your fatness? Why is losing so hard? The truth is, we're all losers in some form and at some point, the worst thing will happen. Our rock bottom. Are you prepared? Get ready losers, let's tackle our failures, what's the worst that can happen?" - Urzila Carlson
Urzila's quick-witted nature made her a familiar face in the comedy circuit. With her innate talent, she became a sought-after act both as a stand up performer and an MC. After breaking into the scene, she has had five sold out seasons at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and television appearances whilst being a celebrated journalist in between.
