Comedy

Urzila Carlson

Unacceptable

Presented by Brisbane Comedy Festival and Live Nation

South African/NZ Comedian Urzila Carlson makes her Brisbane debut with her show, Unacceptable, exploring when it became unacceptable to like meat and impossible to process gluten.

And why isn’t it okay to call people out when they’re being assholes? You don’t need to like the latest hipster indie banjo band just because everyone’s saying they do. It’s actually okay to think they’re shit, you’re not alone.

Urzila is a regular face on Australian television making numerous appearances on shows such as Have You Been Paying Attention?,The Great Debate and The Oxfam Gala.
