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.

The GC places strong emphasis on high production values and comfort for artists and audiences.
The main performance space – the 700-seat Grand Central Showroom (1,000 in row seating) is the Fringe’s biggest hard-top, multi-purpose room: fully air-conditioned with side access prosc arch stage, huge wings, high ceiling, black-out curtains, lift and stair access and minimal sound transfer. 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 100-seat “black box” Grand Central Underground, a versatile, character, fully equipped performance space with great audience interaction.
