Anh Do – ‘Happiest Refugee’ Live in Lennox Head!

Anh Do

Comedian Anh Do brings his best-selling memoir, The Happiest Refugee, to life in a ground-breaking stand-up show. Performing at Lennox Community Centre, now with a second show on sale due to popular demand, 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 to become a lawyer, and in 2008 Australia’s Comedian of the Year. Today he is one of Australia’s most sought after stand-up comedians, as well as a talented writer, actor, producer and star of ABC’s ‘Anh’s Brush With Fame’.

The Happiest Refugee: 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 has been awarded Book of the Year with sales in excess of 400,000.

Do’s struggles as a young refugee, his difficulties with English, his parents’ divorce, 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.
