Presented by Tommy Dassalo

Part of

Brisbane Comedy Festival 2022

In 2000, Tommy Dassalo and his family went on holiday to a luxury resort island in Fiji.

While there, they were taken hostage as part of a military coup.

In 2022, after almost two years of being unable to travel pretty much anywhere, Tommy is looking back on that Fijian holiday and wondering “was it really all that bad?”.

An hilarious and thrilling true story from someone who is widely heralded as being ‘a comedian’.
