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 and New Zealand.

In 2020, Urzila’s standalone one-hour Netflix stand-up special, Overqualified Loser, was released in 190 countries, the only New Zealand comedian with her own special NETFLIX. This prestigious opportunity has launched many comics’ international careers and introduced Urzila to a new legion of comedy fans.

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. 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, Tim Minchin, Russell Howard and many more.
