The show is based from Do's moving and inspiring book, The Happiest Refugee: A Memoir, that charts Do's 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 awarded Book of the Year with sales in excess of 400,000. It combines humour, real life stories, photos and filmed pieces retelling Do’s rags-to-riches 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 conquered all the challenges of life to become a lawyer and, in 2008, Australia’s Comedian of the Year. Today he is one of Australia’s most in-demand stand-ups, as well as a talented writer, actor, producer and Star of the ABC1 TV’s ‘Anh’s Brush With Fame”.

When Anh Do delves deep into his own life’s joys and sorrows, you can only expect an unforgettable theatre experience that leaves audiences uplifted and joyful. So, get your tickets and be one happy soul!
