OXFORD – Saturday at 7:30 p.m., 6 On The Square (6OTS) is proud to welcome the award-winning Carla Ulbrich. Carla has a love of clever wordplay and a keen observational eye. She is primarily known for her humorous songs about such topics as wedgies, Waffle House, Klingons, and how rich she would be if she had the copyright on the ‘F’ Word. She sees the humor, maybe a little offbeat at times, in nearly everything. Nicknamed “Weird Gal” (an homage to Weird Al), Carla’s wacky, lively, and side-splittingly funny.
Carla Ulbrich, aka the “Professional Smart Aleck,” is a comical singer/songwriter/guitarist from Clemson, South Carolina, who currently lives in New Jersey. In college, she majored in music, where she frequently got in trouble with her professors for “wasting time” writing her own songs when she should have been practicing. So… she wrote songs about her professors!
Carla’s first CD, “Her Fabulous Debut,” was released in 1999, the same year she won the South Florida Folk Festival Song Competition. In 2002, Carla fell very ill with kidney failure and a stroke. As part of her recovery, she wrote a bunch of humorous medical songs lampooning her frustrating experience with the US health care system, resulting in the CD “Sick Humor.”
