Urzila brings her trademark deadpan humour and cheeky wit to Auckland at the Bruce Mason Centre on Friday, May 7 2021.
Commenting on the show, Urzila says, “The world is getting hotter and we are getting hotter under the collar. I can’t remember a time in history when we as a people were ever as angry as we are now. We have apps to help us meditate, watches that tell us how long and restful we slept, we do yoga and pilates, we stretch and think about things more, and yet we are FURIOUS, we are limber and fit and RAGING OUR TITS OFF!
“What’s getting our rage up? Why can’t we shake the fury? I have managed to crack it and I know why we are so angry. Think of me as the Greta of your Hottest Emotions, we’ll get to the bottom of your rage and why we need it to function in today’s world,” continues Urzila.
Urzila’s latest announce follows a blistering few years which have included her NETFLIX debut as part of the streaming service’s unprecedented stand-up comedy event series, Comedians of the World. She has since released her first standalone one-hour NETFLIX special, Overqualified Loser, a prestigious opportunity that has seen Urzila launched to a new international audience. Most recently she was a huge hit after joining the dynamic panel of The Masked Singer Australia on Network Ten in 2020. She has continued as a much-loved series regular on Ten’s Have You Been Paying Attention?! in New Zealand, as well as appearing on the Australian edition of the show. She was previously seen on NZ’s 7 Days and was a key cast member on fellow comedian Nazeem Hussain’s 2018 flagship show, Orange Is The New Brown.
Urzila sells out seasons and picks up awards like nobody’s business both here and in Australia. These have included the 2017 Sydney Comedy Festival’s Director’s Choice Award, the NZ Comedy Guild’s Best Female Comedian Award (six times), as well as the People’s Choice Award at the NZ International Comedy Festival two years in a row
