Samuel Gebreselassie

I'm a Refugee...Get Me Out of Here!

In 1980 Sam’s parents escaped a war-torn Ethiopia for a Sudanese refugee camp. Then in 1998, when Sam was just a child, they found themselves all the way in New Zealand thanks to the UN’s resettlement program.
Today Sam’s one of Australia’s rising comedy stars, a multi-award-winning comedian and producer making his way across the ditch to share his hilariously unique origin story.
