COMING 2 APRIL

Michael Shafar

Michael Shafar returns to MCIF with raw, personal and hilarious new comedy

One of Australia’s fasting rising comedy stars, Melbournian Michael Shafar, returns to the Melbourne Comedy Festival with a brand new show, 50/50, at the Victoria Hotel from 28 March to 21 April. Building from the success of his sold out shows Jewish-ish and Kosher Bacon, 50/50 is a raw, deeply personal and hilarious account of Shafar’s physical and mental health journey. 

In 2017 Shafar was diagnosed with cancer and it has given him a lot of material. Don't worry, this show is funny. It's definitely not a TED Talk!

Since leaving a career in law, 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 with appearances on SBS’ RAW Comedy National Final 2016, ABC’s Comedy Bites, Triple J’s Good Az Friday, and as a comedy writer for Channel 10’s The Project$2 from every ticket sold will be donated to Cabrini Hospital in Malvern where Michael underwent his
treatment.

$2 from every ticket sold will be donated to Cabrini Hospital in Malvern where Michael underwent his treatment.
