Book Description

Anh Do nearly didn't make it to Australia. His entire family came close to losing their lives as they escaped from war-torn Vietnam in an overcrowded boat. It was a dangerous journey, with murderous pirates and terrifying storms, but they managed to survive. Life in suburban Australia was also hard for a small boy with no English and funny lunches. But there was a loving extended family, lots of friends, and always something to laugh about for Anh, his brother Khoa and their sister Tram. And eventually for a young Anh, who tried hard to see the bright side of life no matter what the difficulty, there was triumph. The Little Refugee tells the uplifting and inspiring story of the incredible childhood of one of Australia's favourite personalities.

Author Biography - Anh Do

Anh Do Anh Do is an accomplished writer, actor, producer and stand-up comedian. After bagging all the comedy awards around town, including the Sydney Comedian of the Year, and appearing on all the TV shows that feature comedians, including "Thank God You're Here" and "Rove Live", Anh finally realized that those regular gigs at Rooty Hill bikers club would one day get him killed, so he has supplemented the income with acting, film producing and writing. 2006 saw the release of 'Footy Legends' in which Anh was the star along-side Claudia Karvan and Matthew Johns. In 2003 Anh co-produced the film 'The Finished People' (Post 75 Productions). It was described by Margaret Pomeranz as 'one of the best Australian films of the year'. Even though he is a terrible dancer, Anh got to the grand final of 'Dancing with the Stars', being a huge favourite with the voting home audience. This success saw him offered his own TV show 'Made in China with Anh Do' - an Olympics special which rated through the roof. Anh has more of his own TV projects in the pipeline. Anh is also a regular on 'The Matty Johns Show' and has been seen on 'The Footy Show', 'Spicks and Specks' as well as Seachange', 'Good News Week' and 'All Saints'. Anh is still one of the most sought after stand-up comedians in Australia. His completely clean material and friendly stage manner makes him one of Australia's most popular corporate comedians, having entertained clients ranging from The Commonwealth Bank to Hallmark Cards to IBM. He is used again and again as an MC and comic by many companies who enjoy the warmth and joy he brings to an evening. And right at the end of the biography (cause it's something he doesn't like to admit), in 1999 Anh completed a Bachelor of Business and was 6 months away from completing a Bachelor of Law at the University of Technology, Sydney. The threat of having to go back to finish his law degree ensures that Anh works hard at his acting and comedy career. So far he is doing superbly.
