Anh Do is an accomplished writer, actor, producer, artist 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, writing and painting.
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”. The release of Footy Legends in 2006 saw Anh star alongside Claudia Karvan and Matthew Johns.
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. On the back of his success, Anh hosted his own TV show 'Made in China with Anh Do' - an Olympics special which rated through the roof, followed by the Anh Does... series of specials (2012-2014). Anh has also appeared as a guest on programs including The Matty Johns Show, The Footy Show, Spicks and Specks, Seachange, Good News Week and All Saints.
Anh’s autobiography The Happiest Refugee has won many awards, including the 2011 Australian Book of the Year, Biography of the Year and Newcomer of the Year, as well as the Indie Book of the Year Award 2011 and Non-fiction Indie Book of the Year 2011.
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 Laws 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.
