The perfect risk free choice of corporate MC and comedian. his witty clean and friendly stage manner make him one of Australia's most popular comedians and TV personalities , including Dancing With The Stars, Thank God Your're Here, Spicks and Specks, Rove and The Footy Show. A Vietnamese refugee as a 2 year old, he also has a Bachelor of Law. An incredible and inspiring story sits beneath this very funny man.
The story begins in the Indian Ocean - 1980. An 8 metre fishing boat with 47 Vietnamese Refugees cramped in like sardines. A 2 year old boy is sick from de-hydration, his desperate mother can do nothing to help him – water ran out days ago, and so far one person has died.
Fast forward to Australia - 2008. The little boy is 30 years old and has been voted Comedian of the Year. He is recognized by kids and adults alike who call out jokes they’ve heard on Rove Live, Thank God You’re Here and Dancing With the Stars. He’s entertained, motivated and inspired thousands and thousands at corporate events in Australia and throughout the world.
The ups and downs, trials and tribulations, difficulties and successes of a refugee during those 2 decades makes for an incredible and amazing inspirational tale that has the audience gripped with emotion one minute and then howling with laughter the next. The result is always a room that has been transformed.
From language difficulties to divorcing parents, from being broke to being bullied, from becoming a lawyer to becoming Comedian of the Year… Anh uses all his life’s experiences to lift an audience to great heights of inspired motivation.
We thought we were "just" getting a really funny comedian - and we certainly did - but so much more…we have had many speakers over the years and Anh was the "best ever!".

"Anh was an absolute pleasure to deal with a true professional, he held the room in the palm of his hand. Personally I was on the verge of tears from the story of his journey one minute and then crying from laughter the next!"
"Very easy with arrangements in the pre-planning stage, showed flexibility towards his rider items to suite our event, he was professional and organised but easy going on the night, and the feedback from his performance from our guests was all brilliant, a good mix of comedy and inspiration. He also offered to stay around and let us take photos with him after his performance, which we really appreciated. I would certainly recommend Anh Do"
