Michael Shafar: Well Worth the Chemo

This event is part of the 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

You might know Michael Shafar from his appearances on Network 10’s The Project and Studio 10, or ABC’s Comedy Bites, or his debut special (A)LIVE on Amazon Prime. You might even be one of the 70+ million people who has seen his videos online.

It’s also entirely possible that you don’t know Michael at all. Either way, you’ll enjoy his show, because this Jewish, testicular cancer survivor, lawyer-turned-comedian has solutions to all of the world’s problems.

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”.
