Multi award-winning South African-New Zealander URZILA CARLSON has become a household name in Australia in the past year, and she returns from across the ditch this year with a national stand up tour.
Carlson (from Network Ten’s smash-hit panel show, Have You Been Paying Attention?!) will take her brand-new comedy show, LOSER, to 10 cities and regional centres around the country from March to June in 2019. Commencing at the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival on March 28, the MICF season of Loser will see Urzila become the first female comedian to perform a full run at Melbourne Town Hall’s Main Hall. Following Melbourne, Loser will head to Brisbane, Townsville, Canberra, Launceston, Hobart, Adelaide, Perth, Newcastle and Sydney.
“Loser is almost always negative,” Urzila says. “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 there 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, we’ll hit our rock bottom. Are you prepared? Get ready losers, let’s tackle our failures. What’s the worst that can happen?”
The 2017 winner of the Sydney Comedy Festival’s Director’s Choice Award was born in South Africa, and now calls New Zealand home where she is a household name and a cast member of popular NZ comedy panel show 7 Days. Selling out is a regular occurrence for Carlson in both Australia and New Zealand. In 2018, she sold out her entire MICF season including extra shows in record time becoming one of the biggest sellers of the Festival. We can assure you this will be a hoot and definitely worth the drive up the freeway.
Buy soon and buy early – LOSER IS 2019’s hottest ticket!
Catch her at Melbourne Town Hall at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival from March 28 – April 20.
