Michael Shafar is a stand-up comic and writer for The Project on Network Ten. But this success hasn’t happened overnight. Like most stand-up comedians it started off with bombing at his first open mic, and then two years of performing at every opportunity that presented itself. His next step was hosting ‘The Leak‘ on community television station, Channel 31, before climbing the ranks to commercial television.
In this School of Hard Knock Knocks stand-up comedy podcast, you’ll learn how religious cynicism, disinterest in a law degree, and an unhealthy consumption of news, can lead to a great comedy career. And if you want to see Michael Shafar in person, his next show is at the Butterfly Club’s ‘Melbourne Comedy’s Rising Stars‘ on June 3. He can also be reached at www.MichaelShafar.com.
