Urzila Carlson's warm and inviting South African drawl is the voice you'll hear on the phone when you call us at The Radio FM!
Carlson is the receptionist (edit: office manager) at The Radio and somehow persuaded us to put her bio on our website.
Urzila Carlson moved to New Zealand in 2006 and saw the lighter side of life and in 2008 started doing comedy.
In her 4 years in comedy she has racked up an impressive array of awards for her stand up including 'Best Newcomer' 2008, ‘Best Female Comedian’ at the 2010 and 2011 NZ Comedy Guild Awards.
Urzila Carlson took to the stage in April 2008 for the first time, fell in love and so did the audience.
In December 2008 Urzila won the NZ Comedy Guilds best newcomer award and also took home the Andrew Kovacevich Memorial Cup.
In 2010 Urzila got nominated for a Billy T Comedy Award and also wins the 2010 NZ Comedy Guilds best female comedian award.
In 2011 Urzila went to Adelaide to perform her solo show, A whole lotta woman.
