Michael Shafar Debuts New Show At Perth's Fringe World
After SOLD OUT shows across the country, one of Australia's fastest rising comedians, Michael Shafar, returns to Fringe World!
As seen on SBS's RAW Comedy and heard on ABC's Comedy Bites and triple j's Good Az Friday. Writer for Channel 10's The Project.
Since leaving a career in law, Michael Shafar has been working busily to try and justify that decision to his Jewish mother. He has (somewhat) achieved that, having made a name for himself as one of the fastest rising stars in Australian comedy, reaching the RAW Comedy National Final in 2016 and selling out shows across the country.
Building on from the success of his sold out shows Jewish-ish and Kosher Bacon, Michael is back with a brand new show 50/50 show that is raw, deeply personal and hilarious. "In 2017 I was diagnosed with cancer, and it gave me a lot of material. It's the most transparent and honest I've ever been on stage, and it's also the most I've had audiences laugh," said Michael. "Humour has kept me sane throughout the journey and helped me find some meaning in it all. It's been cathartic sharing that on stage," he added.
