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