We need to talk about Urzila.
Cheeky, straight up.
There’s just something that we can’t quite pinpoint.
You walk into the theatre with monotoned excitement – and by the end of it, she has you eating out of her hand.
Typically brazen, Urzila Carlson cottoned on to a vibrant Christchurch audience at the Isaac Theatre Royal within seconds – juggling the serious and comedic with innate talent from the get go.
Isolating absurdities of modern life, Carlson mixes feisty with dry and a hint of bitters – lemon and lime, if you like.
South African by birth, but New Zealander by design, the star known for her regular appearances on hit show 7 Days has something which warms and synonymously excites.
It’s comedy with absolutely zero attempt – nada – to polish any rough edges.
