Rolling with the Punchlines: A Memoir by Urzila Carlson
Reviewed by Jill
In “Rolling with the Punchlines”, Urzila Carlson talks candidly about her childhood, her family, her abusive dad, and about growing up in South Africa. Her memoir is filled with humorous stories about both the big things in life, like Coming Out, and the little things, like a particularly traumatic waxing experience. But it’s not all laughter and lightness, Carlson also tells us some darker tales such as the incident that led to her decision to leave South Africa and move to New Zealand.
Carlson’s accidental beginning in stand-up comedy has led to an incredibly successful career in comedy, with regular gigs on television as well as sell-out shows in comedy festivals across New Zealand and Australia. She is currently touring New Zealand on her “Studies Have Shown” tour and will be appearing in Invercargill at the Civic Theatre on the first of June.
