Urzila Carlson - Token African

Concert Hall, QPAC

South African-New Zealander and multi award-winning comedian Urzila Carlson is bringing her brand new stand up show, Token African to Concert Hall, QPAC from May 3-5, 2021.

The 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s highest ticket-seller, and a household name across two continents, Urzila Carlson is also a much-loved series regular on Network Ten’s smash-hit panel show, Have You Been Paying Attention?! in Australia, as well as NZ’s new edition of the show. 

In her new show she argues 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. 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 game reserves wear ranger outfits... why is that? We don't wear scrubs when going to the doctor... Africa puts things in perspective. And this show will help you find that focus, delivered to you by a Token African. 

Need to know - Urzila's runaway popularity sees her shows sell out at a cracking pace so book your tickets now!
