Melbourne Fringe Festival presents – MICHAEL SHAFAR is Jewish-ish

As seen on SBS’s RAW Comedy and Channel 31’s The Leak.

Jewish-ish is Michael Shafar’s debut stand-up comedy show. Michael is one of the country’s best emerging comics and has performed around Australia, New Zealand and the US. He also happens to be Jewish, which is something he will probably mention on stage

Michael is a 2016 RAW Comedy National Finalist, hosts the constantly sold-out Melbourne Comedy’s Rising Stars and has performed to sell-out crowds in 3 Course Comedy at Perth’s Fringe World and Melbourne International Comedy Festival. He also hosted RMITV’s flagship TV production The Leak and is the creator of the satirical webpage Round Squares.

In Jewish-ish, Michael brings a fresh perspective to politics, religion and bagels. It’s stand up comedy from the mean streets of East St Kilda.
