Extra shows added for Urzila Carlson’s 'Loser'

- Beloved Standup Comic Urzila Carlson Debuts New Hour -

Kiwis just can’t get enough of multi award-winning South African/New Zealand comedian URZILA CARLSON, adding two extra shows in Auckland at SKYCITY THEATRE on MAY 3 and MAY 6.

Urzila will bring her brand-new comedy show LOSER to SKYCITY THEATRE, for an extended run MAY 3-6 AUCKLAND, before heading south for shows at TE AUAHA, MAY 8-13, WELLINGTON as part of the 2018 New Zealand International Comedy Festival with Best Foods Mayo.

“Marvellous subversiveness” - Theatreview

Effortlessly likeable... stream of belly-laughs” - The Age


“Loser is almost always negative, Urzila says, I’ve lost my keys, a relative, my mind, money, dignity… it’s only positive when you lose some weight. WHY? If you meet someone awesome would you not want there to be more of them? Why can your friends not see your fatness but your family and doctor can see nothing but your fatness? Why is losing so hard? The truth is, we’re all losers in some form and at some point, the worst thing will happen. Our rock bottom. Are you prepared? Get ready losers, let’s tackle our failures, what’s the worst that can happen?”

South African-born, and household name as cast member of Three’s hit comedy panel show 7 Days, Urzila took to the stage for the first time in 2008. Since then she’s racked up an impressive array of awards including Best Female Comedian at the 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 NZ Comedy Guild Awards, as well as Three’s coveted People’s Choice Award two years in a row at the NZ International Comedy Festival.

Urzila regularly sells out her live shows in New Zealand so don’t miss out on seeing Urzilla in her element, ya loveable loser.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
