Urzila Carlson: It’s Personal Tour Arrives in Whelan’s 22nd February 2023

South Africa-New Zealand comedian Urzila Carlson is delighted to announce that she is bringing her brand new show It’s Personal to Whelan’s on 22nd February 2023.

It’s Personal arrives hot on the heels of her last tour Token African, as well as her NETFLIX hour-long comedy special Overqualified Loser (released in 190 countries) and Comedians of the World. She was the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s People’s Choice award-winner for the People’s Choice Award for most tickets sold across the festival (30,000 to be exact!) and has been a member of the dynamic panel of The Masked Singer Australia on Network Ten for the past two seasons.

Despite the hectic scheduleUrzila has also found the time to release her premiere podcast That’s Enough Already! that has shot to the top of the Comedy charts in Australia and New Zealand, and will be making her mark in feature animation as the voice of Honkus in Ozi, alongside Donald Sutherland, Laura Dern, Ru Paul and Amandla Stenberg, due for release in 2022.

Urzila has earned an impressive array of awards over the past few years including the 2019 Rielly Comedy Award by the Variety Artists Club of NZ, Best Female Comedian at the New Zealand Comedy Guild Awards (no less than six times); New Zealand International Comedy Festival’s coveted People’s Choice Award (2014 & 2015); Sydney Comedy Festival’s Director’s Choice Award (2017); and was a nominee for the Helpmann Award for Best Comedy Performer in 2018. Furthermore, Urzila was the 2019 Australasian Ambassador of South African Tourism for both Australia and New Zealand.
