 Urzila Carlson announces Token African tour

  Tickets on sale now!

 Multi award-winning South African-Kiwi URZILA CARLSON  announces her brand-new show, Token African, will tour New Zealand this year.

The sharp-tongued stand-up will be performing in Auckland and Wellington as part of the New Zealand International Comedy Festival in May and continue to wreak havoc in July, performing at seven other locations throughout the country.

Featuring all new material and poking fun at her birth country, Urzila laughs that Africans have become the new must have accessory!

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

Africa changes people. People who visit to 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.
