THERE will be laughs aplenty on Norfolk Island in August when the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow rolls into town for a weekend of stand-up, satire, silliness and song.
Norfolk Island is one of the specially selected locations to host the Roadshow which is happening after the curtains close on the 2019 Festival in Melbourne in April.
The Festival's most loved and laughed at comedians from Australia, New Zealand and beyond will pack their bags and head off on the Roadshow home-delivering hot and tasty comedic treats right around Australia, including five who will join all the fun and partying on Norfolk Island on the weekend of August 2-5.
One is South African-born Urzila Carlson, a multi award-winning stand-up comedian who appears regularly on the television show, Have You Been Paying Attention
She is a recognisable face not only on the comedy circuit in New Zealand and Australia, but is also a celebrated author, columnist, presenter and sports enthusiast.
Urzila says of her show called Loser: "Loser is almost always negative. 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?"
