Anh Do on "Sunrise"

Vietnamese-Australian actor and comedian Anh Do appeared on Channel 7's Sunrise program recently touting his new book The Happiest Refugee.

While I don't really rate Do as a comic, he seems a genuinely likeable and engaging fellow, as well a great representative for Asian-Australians.

You can watch the interview here; at the same site there's also some commentary on the blog of David Koch, the host of Sunrise. It's interesting to read the tone of Koch, whose audience is very mainstream, and who is all-too aware that Do's good-news story is much needed amid Australia's prevailing mood of anti-refugee hysteria.

There's a longer and more illuminating interview with Do on ABC radio which you can listen to here.
