Everything was going well for Michael Shafar in 2017. He  sold out his first comedy show Jewish-ish at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and in January 2017 landed a job as a comedy writer for channel 10’s The Project. Then in October of that year he was diagnosed with testicular cancer.

In this video, Michael – who started studying biological science – comes behind the scenes to see how Australia’s world-class pathology labs help diagnose and treat cancers, and he meets the pathologist who managed his case. The Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Michael’s show has begun already, to catch Michael’s upcoming shows, check out this page.
