Craig Shoemaker is a modern day Renaissance man. Best known for his engaging, relatable standup and his iconic baritone-voiced character, “The Lovemaster”, Craig delights every audience with his multi-dimensional ability to entertain in a way that is not only amusing but also relevant.
Craig has had several successful solo TV stand-up specials, co-starred in numerous films, hosted popular network TV shows, written two beloved children’s books and performed for four U.S. Presidents. ‘Dr. Shoe’ has a doctorate degree from Cal U of PA, is an ordained minister and is even credited for co-creating “On Hold Advertising.”
“Shoe” began his career in his hometown of Philadelphia, where he honed his comedic skills and characters while bartending and attending Temple University, winning the “Best Comedian” award from Philly Magazine. A natural storyteller with sharp observational instincts; Craig’s performances are often based on the hilarious and sometimes shocking twists and turns of his own life.
Craig’s past syndicated radio show was critically acclaimed and, after only 10 months on the air, won the prestigious Communicator Award “Crystal” prize. Two of his unforgettable stand-up comedy bits made it to the all time Top 10 list on XM Radio; with his Lovemaster routine honored as the “Most Popular” on XM. The Laugh it Off! podcast is at an impressive #35 on iTunes and has soared in popularity, due to Craig’s great sense of humor, depth of conversation and incredible in-studio guests. It can be heard at CraigShoemakerShow.com.
Craig’s latest 90 minute standup special, “Daditude” was filmed in front of a SRO Webb Theatre audience in Anaheim, CA premiering prime time on SHOWTIME Network on Nov 9, 2012. “Shoemaker is insightful and amusing…we are moved beyond laughter to tears,” says the Los Angeles Times.
Voted Elevate Film Festival’s “Best Supporting Actor,” Craig’s film, television and recording credits are extensive, sharing both the big and small screen with luminaries like Will Smith, Whoopi Goldberg, Steve Martin and Samuel L Jackson. Craig plays Neve Campbell’s teacher in Scream 2, and stars in Universal’s cult hit, Totally Baked, which he also wrote and produced. His very first Comedy Central show was voted by viewers as one of the “Top 20″ stand-up specials of all time. His second, “Unzipped” aired to mass acclaim and the live CD was on the U.S. Billboard Top 20 for six straight weeks.
Craig’s unforgettable comedy style has earned him numerous awards, including “Best Male Standup” at the American Comedy Awards on ABC. His work as a writer, actor and producer for the regional TV network, PRISM, earned Shoemaker two Emmy Awards. As a voiceover artist, Craig’s dead-on impression of Don Knotts and narration was featured in the film Pleasantville and Craig’s distinct voice has given life to some of the most beloved characters in numerous animated series, including all voices (and title song) for the new BBC cartoon, Big Foot, Little Foot.
Rev. Doc Shoe is passionate about going beyond the comedy, officiating weddings of “HaHa-trimony,” as well as assisting people in mastering love & happiness. In 2003 he founded LaughterHeals.org, a nonprofit group dedicated to using laughter as a healing modality. Currently, Craig is producing a documentary called Live to Laugh, and developing a web series called, Enlighten UP, Shift Happens!
Craig is happily married to his wife Mika and is father to three wonderful sons, Justin, Jared and Jackson.
