OLIVER TWIST

Griot
More Info

Fifteen-year-old Oliver Twist has one thing going on – bootlegging and selling music and videos.

He is the internet of his local area in Malawi, selling his wares in the refugee camp where his family have settled after feeling civil war in Rwanda. Arriving in Australia his resume is less impressive, as everyone has the internet readily available. He resorts to odd jobs, from door-to-door sales to working in events setting up for the likes of ColdPlay and Adele in Brisbane.

Griot is a vignette of the journey of day-to-day survival for Oliver. From Malawi to Australia, this whip-smart, wise cracking stand up finds humour in everything. Nothing and no one is exempt from his jokes – from ISIS to protests to ex-girlfriends.
