BY POPULAR DEMAND ANH RETURNS WITH HIS HIT SHOW!! Comedian Anh Do brings his best-selling memoir, The Happiest Refugee, to life in a ground-breaking new stand-up show.

Performed at The Events Centre – Caloundra for one night only in May, this moving, inspirational and unforgettable 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.

Today he is one of Australia’s most sought after stand-ups, as well as a talented writer, actor, producer and corporate entertainer.

The Happiest Refugree: A Memoir, charts his journey from starving refugee to one of Australia’s best-loved entertainers, and was described by Russell Crowe as “the most surprising and inspiring read I have had in years,”. It was recently awarded Book of the Year with sales in excess of 300,000.

Do’s struggles as a young refugree – his difficulties with English, divorcing parents, being bullied and broke, are brought to life in this hilarious but moving new stage show, garnering this happy refugee standing ovations across the country.
