Anh Do

Australia’s most prolific entertainer with an inspiring story of growing up as a refugee

A force to be reckoned with in Australia’s entertainment industry, Anh Do’s professional and personal life is an inspiring tale of determination and courage.

Travelling to Australia in 1980 as a small boy, Anh recalls being crammed onto a small nine-metre fishing boat with his family and 40 other Vietnamese refugees. The journey was plagued with sickness, pirate attacks and deaths onboard, before Anh’s family would finally settle in Sydney shortly after.

Pivoting away from his law and business degree, Anh made his start in comedy at an “open mic” event. Not long after, Anh would go on to being voted Comedian of the Year in 2010. A fan-favourite for audiences of all ages, Anh has taken his entertainment skills off-stage in a variety of film and TV roles, many of which involve him leading the program as host. His comedic skills have been featured on ‘Rove’, ‘Thank God You’re Here’ and ‘Dancing with the Stars’.

Anh has also hosted ‘Anh’s Brush with Fame’ on ABC TV where he interviews and paints portraits of some of Australia’s most notable personalities.

Outside of this, Anh is best known for his extensive collection of books. He has written many children books which have spawned entire series, including ‘WeirDo’, ‘Smarty Pup’, and ‘Ninja Kid’.

His memoir, ‘The Happiest Refugee’, was awarded the 2011 Australian Book of the Year, along with Biography of the Year, Newcomer of the Year, and was shortlisted in the 2011 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards. Drawing on his personal experiences growing up in Australia as a refugee, Anh’s memoir is a delightful and uplifting read that is sure to inspire.

With a great personality and sense of humour, Anh uses his personal stories to inspire and entertain audiences of all kinds. He is the ideal comedian, MC and speaker for your function!
