As seen and heard on Channel 10’s The Project, ABC’s Comedy Bites, triple j’s Good Az Friday, SBS’s RAW Comedy and more! Neither COVID nor a cancer relapse can keep Michael Shafar from returning to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival ready to give 110%.
Building on the success of Jewish-ish, Kosher Bacon and his critically acclaimed 50/50, which chronicled his diagnosis with testicular cancer, Michael is back at the MICF to deliver more of his uniquely dark observations and hilarious, contrarian opinions.
Surviving cancer and sharing that experience on stage really changed Shafar’s philosophy on comedy. 110% sees Shafar in the same vein – raw and honest – covering an eclectic range of topics; the benefits of undergoing further chemotherapy during Melbourne’s lockdown, the perils of skinny jeans and the power of bagels.
Since leaving a career in law, Shafar has been working busily to try and justify that decision to his Jewish mother. Working as a comedian and comedy writer for 10’s The Project, he has (somewhat) achieved that – making a name for himself as one of the fastest rising stars in Australian comedy, performing internationally and selling out shows across the country.
