Anh Do The Happiest Refugee – Maitland
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.
Anh Do’s bestselling book, ‘The Happiest Refugee’ has made readers laugh and cry, and was described by Russell Crowe as “the most surprising and inspiring read in years.” Anh’s stage show takes it a step further, combining stand up comedy with real life stories, photos and filmed pieces to retell his amazing story.
