Michael Shafar is a comedian, Jew and schnitzel enthusiast.

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

In 2016, Michael burst onto the comedy scene in the RAW Comedy National Final, represented Australia in the Laugh Factory's Funniest Person in the World Competition and toured across Asia, headlining at the continent's biggest clubs.


He has since gone on to appear on Network 10's The Project and Studio 10, ABC's Comedy Bites, triple j's Good Az Friday, and toured four shows around the country, regularly selling out at Australia's major festivals, including the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

He's also had 10+ millions views online, most of which are probably anti-vaxxers who hate-follow him on TikTok.

He is currently touring his latest show The Return of Shafar, which promises to solve all of the world's problems. Oh, and he has a special coming out later this year with Comedy Dynamics, so keep an eye out for that.


Also, Michael wrote this bio himself and he wants to apologise for writing it in third person, because that's a pretty wanky thing to do.

edgy and offensive with beautiful finesse"
