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 2016 RAW Comedy National Final and representing Australia in the Laugh Factory's Funniest Person in The World Competition. After a selling out his entire season and extra shows at the 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Michael now brings a Jewish-ish perspective to religion, politics and bagels at Sydney Fringe Comedy.
