One of Australia's most exciting new comedians is coming to Edinburgh! You might know Michael Shafar from his debut special (A)Live on Amazon Prime or be one of the 70+ million people who have seen his videos online. This Jewish, testicular cancer survivor, lawyer-turned-comedian is in Edinburgh to prove why, according to his own oncologist, he was 'well worth the chemo'. 'Shafar circumnavigates the line between edgy and offensive with beautiful finesse' ****½ (TheAge.com.au). 'If you fear comedy has gotten too politically correct, Shafar will put those fears to rest.' **** (Time Out).
