Award-winning South African/New Zealand comedian, URZILA CARLSON is performing at Oamaru Opera House at 7.30pm Saturday June 17, offering us an evening of hilarious, fresh stand-up.
A much-loved comedian of NZ stage and screen, Carlson is currently touring Studies Have Shown around Invercargill, Nelson, Hamilton, New Plymouth, Queenstown, Timaru, Oamaru, Palmerston North, Whanganui, Napier and Christchurch.
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 f*cking times already!
South African-born, and household name in NZ as a cast member of TV3’s hit comedy panel show 7Days, Urzila took to the stage for the first time in 2008. 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 the coveted TV3 People’s Choice Award two years in a row at the NZ International Comedy Festival.
Urzila regularly sells out her live shows in NZ, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth; and her first book, a memoir entitled Rolling with the Punchlines, has just been released through Allen & Unwin.
