Urzila Carlson Is Uproarious But Scattered on Overqualified Loser
By Clare Martin |  July 27, 2020 |  2:45pm
(...)
New Zealand-based Urzila Carlson is one such comedian whose career doesn’t make sense in American terms. (...) Carlson’s jokes also prove incredibly quotable. “Like, I don’t identify as fat, but… I’m quite a few meals ahead and a few shits behind,” she declares in a particularly memorable one-liner.
