“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 Australia and NZ so don’t miss out on seeing Urzilla in her element, ya loveable loser.
