I'm a Refugee...Get Me Out of Here! - Sam is standing in what looks like at the top of a mountain in the jungle with the sun behind him shinning on everything. He has a big smile on his face and his teeth are showing. His hands are pushing through the bush.

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

In 1998 Samuel Gebreselassie was just a child when his Ethiopian family escaped a war-torn Sudanese refugee camp, finding himself all the way in New Zealand thanks to the UN’s refugee program. 

Today, he’s one of Australia’s rising comedy stars, a multi-award winning comedian & producer making his way across the ditch to share his hilariously unique origin story and outsider perspective on the world. 

Hand-picked by the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and featured on ABC Radio, catch Sam before he gets out of here!
