Urzila Carlson - Token African

Urzila Carlson - Token African


Multi award-winning South African-Kiwi Urzila Carlson is set to wreak havoc on New Zealand with her brand-new show, Token African, as part of the New Zealand International Comedy Festival.

Featuring all new material and poking fun at her birth country, Urzila laughs that Africans have become the new must have accessory!

“Okay, not really, but everyone knows one, works with one or has a sister that’s dating one of us,” according to Urzila who’s become a household name in New Zealand and over summer, made her bid for world domination, debuting on Netflix as part of the streaming service’s breakthrough stand-up comedy event series “Comedians of the World”

“What makes you African? Is it enough that you’re born there? Do you need to be able to dance? Why does being South African not register as African in most places? You’re thinking about it right now aren’t you? Questioning it.

“Africa changes people. People who visit to game reserves wear ranger outfits… why is that? We don't wear scrubs when going to the doctor… Africa puts things in perspective, this show will help you find that focus, delivered to you by a Token African.”

Urzila’s natural cheeky, straight up style will have you eating out of her hand the moment she takes the stage and you’ll want to be her friend. Since taking the comedy stage in 2008 she has had sold out seasons at the Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and New Zealand Comedy Festivals.

Her television appearances include Spicks and Specks, Dirty Laundry, Have You Been Paying Attention?, The Great Debate with Barry Humphries, ABC Comedy Up Late, 7 Days, Super City, Road Madness and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Galas.
