Anh Does Bri­tain

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Tues­day, 7.30pm, Seven Anh Do, 36, is a Viet­namese asy­lum-seeker who with his fam­ily sur­vived an in­cred­i­ble jour­ney by rick­ety boat to Aus­tralia in 1980. He went on to write the mov­ing and very funny best­seller The Hap­pi­est Refugee (a good choice for any book club) and be­came one of Aus­tralia’s best known co­me­di­ans. Last year he fronted a trav­el­ogue on Viet­nam that av­er­aged 2.3 mil­lion view­ers; tonight he fol­lows up with his first visit to Bri­tain where he dis­cov­ers ec­cen­tric pas­times such as cheese rolling, toe wrestling and a sport called sting­ing nettle eat­ing. Do is an en­thu­si­as­tic sto­ry­teller; his smile and easy pre­sen­ta­tion are mag­netic. He loves what he does and it’s in­fec­tious. Won­der where he’ll go next.
