URZILA CARLSON – Just Jokes

Sunday, 28 July 2024

7:00 pm

Sunday 28 July 7:00pm & 9:00pm

Australia’s favourite South African-New Zealander Urzila Carlson is coming to the West Gippsland Arts Centre as part of her brand-new show JUST JOKES!

According to Carlson, the show’s premise is simple. “Just Jokes is as it says on the label! Just jokes! Come for a show and leave with a sore face from laughing! Switch off and relax”, she said.

A deadset fan favourite (quite literally), Urzila is now a three-time winner of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s People’s Choice Award for most tickets sold at the Festival. She is also a household name in Australia, not least of all as a regular member of the panel of Network Ten’s Have You Been Paying Attention? She was a contestant in season 2 of Taskmaster NZ in New Zealand, now airing on BINGE in Australia and Channel 4 in the United Kingdom. Urzila made her UK TV debut in 2023, appearing on QI during her September overseas tour. She also appears on Celebrity Gogglebox Australia alongside her mates, Julia Morris and Nazeem Hussain.

An undoubted comedy workhorse, Urzila is currently at the top of her touring game. Urzila has sold out two tours of the United Kingdom and a European tour in the last twelve months. Urzila also managed to squeeze in a season at the prestigious invitation-only Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. In November, she will also host The Just For Laughs All-Star Gala alongside Dara O Briain, Joanne McNally and Russell Kane at the Sydney Opera House. And 2024 is already shaping up to be as big, with Urzila set to be heard in feature animation Ozi, lending her voice to the character ‘Honkus’ in the film alongside a star-studded cast, including Donald Sutherland, Laura Dern, Ru Paul, and Amandla Stenberg, produced by Leonardo DiCaprio.

If that dance card isn’t full enough, Carlson is now in the 4th season of her chart-topping podcast, ‘That’s Enough Already!’ where she interviews comedians about what annoys them the most about themselves and others. Guests so far include Jimmy Carr, Sarah Millican, Julia Morris, Tim Minchin, Russell Howard and many more.

Buy quick and buy early; Urzila Carlson is a guaranteed sell-out!
