After sold-out shows around the country, one of Australia’s fastest rising comedians Michael Shafar debuts on the Fringe! He’s been seen on SBS RAW Comedy, the Laugh Factory’s Funniest Person in the World Competition and Channel 44’s The Leak.

You’ve also heard him on ABC Radio’s Comedy Bites and Triple J’s Good Az Friday. He’s also a writer for The Project and creator of satirical webpage and web series Round Squares.

Since leaving a career in law for comedy, Michael has made a name for himself in Australian comedy, reaching the RAW Comedy National Final in 2016, selling out his debut season at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and touring internationally. Kosher Bacon is a show about things that make no sense, like marriage, God and bar-mitzvah DJs.

It is equipped with some of the very best sound and lighting gear available, the equal of anything in the Fringe. 

Other rooms includes the 90-seat “black box” Grand Central Underground, a versatile performance space with great audience interaction.
