Kiwi comedian Urzila Carlson taking her show, Token African, across NZ

Kiwi comedian Urzila Carlson is funny.

If you don't know the name you'll likely recognise her face and her voice from her numerous TV appearances and her sold out stand up shows.

The South African-born comedian is hot property across the Tasman as well, selling out the Sydney Opera House and becoming the only female comedian to perform an entire season at the Melbourne Town Hall.

Carlson spoke with Seven Sharp hosts Hilary Barry and Jeremy Wells about her upcoming New Zealand tour, Token African.
