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 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.

As seen on Have You Been Paying Attention?! and Netflix’s Comedians of the World, Urzila was the winner of the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival People's Choice Award for Highest Ticket-Seller.
