Updated with new chapters and written with her trademark deadpan humour, Urzila's memoir is full of great stories.

Urzila's accidental beginning in stand-up has led to an incredibly successful career in comedy, with regular gigs on Channel 10's Have you Been Paying Attention? in Australia, and 7 Days in NZ, as well as sell-out shows in comedy festivals across Australia and New Zealand.

But life hasn't always been a bundle of laughs. Urzila talks candidly about her childhood with a great family, apart from her abusive dad, and about growing up in South Africa. She shares crazy but true tales about her OE, her move to New Zealand, coming out, getting married and having children, and her recent comedy success in Australia.

This is a great read from one of our most loved and most popular comedians.
