Michael Shafar is a comedian, Jew and schnitzel enthusiast.
M ICHAEL SHAFAR
Since leaving a career in law for comedy, Michael Shafar has been working hard to win his Jewish mother's forgiveness, and has (somewhat) achieved that, having headlined around the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Asia and even on international waters.
You might also know him from his appearances on Network 10's The Project and Studio 10, ABC's Comedy Bites and triple j's Good Az Friday. Of course, traditional media is dead, so it's more likely that you're one of the 80+ million people who have seen his videos online, or perhaps you watched his debut special A(LIVE) on Amazon Prime or his most recent special Alright, Next Joke on YouTube.
In 2024 he'll be touring his new show Lots to Say around Australia, the UK and mainland Europe.
He is currently based in beautiful, sunny London where you can see him performing regularly at the biggest clubs in the UK.

edgy and offensive with beautiful finesse"
