After a sell-out season at the Melbourne Fringe Festival, Michael Shafar debuts Jewish-ish at Fringe World. Michael is one of the country’s best emerging comics having headlined around Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the US. He also happens to be Jewish, which is something he will probably mention on stage.

Michael Shafar

Michael is a 2016 RAW Comedy National Finalist, hosts the constantly sold-out Melbourne Comedy’s Rising Stars and has performed to sell-out crowds in 3 Course Comedy at Perth’s Fringe World and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. He also hosted WTV’s The Leak, is the creator of the satirical webpage Round Squares and writes for Channel 10’s The Project.

In his debut show, Michael brings a Jewish-ish perspective to politics, religion and bagels.
