About This Festival

After a SOLD OUT season of Jewish-ish at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Michael Shafar debuts his new show Kosher Bacon at Melbourne Fringe Festival

As seen on SBS’s RAW Comedy, the Laugh Factory’s Funniest Person in the World Competition and Channel 31’s The Leak. As heard on ABC Radio’s Comedy Bites and Triple J’s Good Az Friday. Writer for Channel 10’s The Project.

Since leaving a career in law for comedy, Michael Shafar has made a name for himself as one of the fastest rising stars in Australian comedy, reaching the RAW Comedy National Final in 2016. Building on from the success of Jewish-ish, Michael debuts Kosher Bacon; a show about paradoxes like ‘round squares’, ‘hot ice’ or ‘delicious tofu’. It also happens to be a show about marriage, the media, God and bar-mitzvah DJs.
