for below the belt cancers

Cancer is no laughing matter, but this fundraiser is!

Raised so far


Our goal


The 2021 Below the Belt Move Your Way Challenge kicked off with a charity comedy night #LaughYourWay on Saturday 1 May.

Hosted by ANZUP’s Below the Belt ambassador, testicular cancer survivor and comedian Michael Shafar, the evening welcomed over 60 attendees all there to laugh and raise awareness and funds for below the belt cancer research. 

Michael invited his comic pals Suren Jayemanne, Daniel Muggleton and Sam Taunton to support the event and the cause.  The four comedians (some of the best in Australia) brought the house down with their hilarious one liners and anecdotes.

The event was held at Seed Spaces at Glebe, who generously supported ANZUP with the venue and onsite support. A special thank you to Oli and Abbey from Seed Spaces.

Thank you to all those who attended and their support, the comedians who donated their time and the prize donors including Ovolo Woolloomooloo, Lion, Lord Dudley Hotel, Jacqui Dark, Julia Newbould, Money Magazine, Mary Kate on Newtown and Australian National Maritime Museum.

#LaughYourWay raised nearly $4,000 for ANZUP’s below the belt cancer research.

About Michael

Testicular cancer survivor and stand-up comedian Michael Shafar is one of the funniest guys around (who you might recognise from Channel 10's The Project, ABC's Comedy Bites and triple j's Good Az Friday).

Michael is currently touring with an all new show, and is ready to give 110%! There's a reason why he is one of the most exciting new comedians in Australia right now and sells out his shows across the country. 110% sees Shafar raw, honest and as irreverent as ever, discussing the surprising benefits of going through chemotherapy during Melbourne's lockdown, the perils of skinny jeans and the power of bagels.
