The self-mocking lesbian took out the prize from the NZ Comedy Guild at the Classic in Auckland last night.
Carlson has again been highly-visible this year, both on the comedy circuit and in regular appearances on TV3â€™s 7 Days. Her continued success and comes after the natural laugh-gatherer started off in comedy on a dare from workmates.
She says she is both happy and surprised at her latest award, which she can add to two others â€“ and the NZ Comedy Guild Best Newcomer Award and the Andrew Kovacevich Memorial Cup.
Carlson was also nominated for the Billy T Comedy Award in 2011.
