Local comedian Michael Shafar, one of the writers for Live On Bowen, curator, producer and host of the constantly sold-out Melbourne Comedy’s Rising Stars, has announced his latest show and offering, 3 Course Comedy, set to take place at The Butterfly Club in Melbourne for one night only.
What is 3 Course Comedy you ask?
It’s simple – take three of the finest delicacies on the Melbourne comedy menu and serve them for a simple, one-hour digestion.
The entrée is Sam Taunton. This tasty morsel has been wowing crowds all year. From presenting on Channel [V] to racking up a “Special Mention” in the National RAW Comedy final, Taunton is on the rise. In fact, as Chortle put it, his “sparky conversational style and easy confidence suits the opening slot perfectly.”
Serving up the main meal is the aforementioned Michael Shafar (3 Little Gigs, Round Squares). Shafar is the consummate storyteller. His natural anecdotal style will guide you around the world and back – painting poignant pictures of travel that are punctuated by laughter so hard your sides will actually hurt.
Your dessert for the night comes in the form of Tim Hewitt. And let’s face it, he’s pretty freaking sweet. Meet the man who can boast a sold-out season at the Brisbane Fringe. The man that Squirrel Comedy says “weaves in and out of his material in dream-like fashion.” Hewitt’s comic stylings are the perfect way to round out a thoroughly delicious night of comedy.
PLEASE NOTE: No food is actually served in the performance of this show.
