Michael Shafar

Since leaving a career in law for comedy, Aussie comic Michael has been working hard to win his Jewish mother’s forgiveness, and has (somewhat) achieved that, having performed around Australia, UK, New Zealand, Asia, the US and on international waters.

You might also know him from his appearances on Network 10’s The Project and Studio 10, ABC’s Comedy Bites, triple j’s Good Az Friday, his 60+ million views online or his debut special A(LIVE) on Amazon Prime.

Alternatively, you might know him from what he does best: the live stand up shows he sells out across Australia, including Perth’s Fringe World, the Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Sydney Comedy Festival.

In 2023 he’ll be touring his new show “Well Worth the Chemo” in Edinburgh and all around Australia​
