*** EXTRA SHOW ADDED - 6:30PM SAT 2 FEB AT FRINGE CENTRAL ***

As heard on ABC's Comedy Bites & triple j's Good Az Friday. Writer for Channel 10's The Project.
After SOLD OUT seasons in 2017-2018, Michael Shafar returns to Perth with a brand new show that is his most personal, raw and hilarious one yet. In 2017 Michael was diagnosed with cancer and, fortunately, it has given him a lot of material. Don't worry, this show is funny. It's definitely not a Ted Talk.
