Testimonials for Urzila Carlson
“Carlson is a gifted and accomplished comedian – an absolute must-see.”
Appetite for the Arts, New Zealand
Urzila was absolutely amazing. She was so interested in our cause and so keen to be involved in all parts of our day. The crowd loved her and she really lifted our event. Many of our guests said it was the best long lunch yet and she was a major factor in this. She was so easy to work with and accommodated the crowd with so many selfie requests. We loved her!
True Colours Children's Health Trust
Controlled the crowd, happy to do anything we asked. Very friendly and HILARIOUS!! Got a fantastic response from people who attended the event.
Urzila was very aware of the type audience she was performing for and her material was totally appropriate. People were laughing so much they had tears running down their faces.
Hilarious! I'm a big fan of Urzila's, but she really made the effort to customise her routine for our audience, drawing on her own experience in our industry.
Urzila was an amazing MC and had taken time to get to know enough about our company and people. An incredibly funny and wonderfully entertaining lady. We would definitely use her again.
