IN PERSON
Live Nation presents

Urzila Carlson It's Personal (NZ,STH AFRICA)

Welcome to the days of mind your own business and don’t comment on others' business. Not their gender, sexuality, body, hair, education or career. Also, welcome to the days of total oversharing on social media, but still, mind your own business. We want to talk about things and want everyone to know It's Personal!

This is a show about keeping your cards close to your chest but walking around naked. Can we have it all? Yes, but also bloody no, but also it’s none of your business because It's Personal.

Urzila has become one of the biggest names in comedy in Australia and New Zealand. 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 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. Urzila is also a much-loved staple on Ten’s smash-hit panel show, Have You Been Paying Attention? both here and in NZ, where she also appeared on a season of Taskmaster NZ, as well as 7 Days.

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 she 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.

Urzila has also found 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.

Buy soon, buy quick. The proof is in the pudding. Urzila Carlson is a guaranteed sell-out. Catch her while you can.
