Ahn Do: The Happiest Refugee

Comedian Anh Do brings his best-selling memoir, The Happiest Refugee, to life in this ground-breaking stand-up show. This moving and inspirational theatre experience combines humour, real life stories, photos and filmed pieces to retell Do’s amazing story. Anh Do travelled to Australia in 1980 on an eight metre fishing boat with 47 other Vietnamese refugees. Sick with dehydration and one person already dead, the journey was the first of many struggles for a young Do, who overcame all manner of difficulties throughout his life to become a lawyer and, in 2008, Australia’s Comedian of the Year.
