Summary Introduced by comedian Tom GleesonComedian Corey White's survival story is second to none. He transformed his rough start in life into a confronting autobiographical comedy act that won him the Best Newcomer Award at this year's Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Nobody escapes his unflinching honesty: his performance tells stories of a drug-addicted mother, a violent father and many damaging foster homes. Now, with comedy as his salvation, Corey is on his way to the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Festival. But before he goes overseas for the first time, he and sister Rebecca take a road trip into the past and piece together their memories of a fragmented childhood
