Urzila Carlson: Token African

South African-New Zealander URZILA CARLSON is a Token African. She’s also a multi-award-winning comedian, the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s highest ticket-seller, and a household name across two continents. And she’s not finished yet.

Carlson is hitting the road again in 2021 with her brand new stand up show, Token African.

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, this show will help you find that focus, delivered to you by a Token African.

Tickets are $61.40 + $5.95 fee from venue website.
