Originally from Rwanda, stand-up comedian Oliver Twist spent 14 years in a Malawi refugee camp before finally arriving in Ipswich, Queensland with his family.
In this Vulnerabilitea House, Oliver answers the question, “Where is home for you?” – a simple question for some, but a complicated one for Oliver.
Oliver shares stories from his extraordinarily imperfect life in great detail. Everything from being displaced by the Rwandan Genocide, to living in the refugee camp, and eventually seeing Trevor Noah perform stand-up comedy on the internet. And, thanks to ANOTHER “good question” from Josh, Oliver reflects on what his Australian citizenship actually means to him.
Oliver Twist’s incredible live shows, Jali and Griot, are still touring in select cities. You can find tickets on the link below:
