Award-winning comedian Urzila Carlson is leaving home to bring her stand-up tour 'Urzila Carlson Reckons You're A Loser' to Australia next year from March.
Urzila will be performing nationally across ten cities and regional centres until mid-June, starting in March at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. From there, the tour will meet audiences in Brisbane, Townsville, Canberra, Launceston, Hobart, Adelaide, Perth, Newcastle and Sydney.
“Loser is almost always negative,” The South African-New Zealander 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?”
On top of the national tour, Urzila is busy with her Netflix debut – one of only 47 international comedians selected to perform a half-hour special – and television appearances on Channel 7's 'Orange Is The New Brown', Channel 10's 'Have You Been Paying Attention?!', and New Zealand comedy show '7 Days'.
