You might know Michael Shafar from his debut special (A)LIVE on Amazon Prime, or you might be one of the 80+ million people who has seen his videos online. He's also been on a bunch of Australian TV and radio programs, but you probably haven't seen those if you live in the UK.
Either way, you'll enjoy his show! This Jewish, testicular cancer survivor, lawyer-turned-comedian is one of the freshest new voices in the Australian comedy scene and has made a name for himself for his scathing social commentary.
Michael receives rave reviews everywhere he performs, but his favourite review came from his oncologist who saw his patient perform and afterwards said: "Great show, Michael. You were well worth the chemo".
