He’s been on Broadway, performed standup comedy for four US Presidents, and guest starred with recurring acting roles on network TV, performed solo television specials, hosted/produced reality television, a WGA scribe of film and sitcoms, award-winning producer, a best selling author…but who IS Craig Shoemaker? Craig is the LoveMaster and is passionate about going beyond the comedy, officiating weddings of “HaHa-trimony,” as well as assisting people in mastering love & happiness. Reno Tahoe Comedy is proud to have Craig in Reno for this special event!
His first Hollywood break was playing the role (twice) as an entertainment reporter on ABC’s “Matlock,”. He also guest starred as a ghost boxer on the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” Several successful TV stand-up specials and numerous co-starring roles followed. Craig’s latest 90-minute standup special, "Daditude,” aired prime time on the SHOWTIME Network. "Shoemaker is insightful and amusing...we are moved beyond laughter to tears," says the Los Angeles Times. His first Comedy Central show was voted one of the “Top 20″ specials of all time. His second, “Unzipped" aired to mass acclaim and the CD was Billboard Top 20 for six weeks. Summer 2015, he produced and starred in the #1 comedy album on I-Tunes, “The Last Stand (Up).” Two stand-up bits made it to the all time Top 10 list on XM Radio. Countless standup TV appearances, including two on HBO’s prestigious “Comic Relief,” which he co hosted from New Orleans in 2008.
Voted Elevate Film Festival’s “Best Supporting Actor,” Craig’s film, TV and recording credits are extensive. He appeared in NBC’s “Parks & Recreation” the “Bold & The Beautiful,” “Scream 2”, “Middle Man”, “Pleasantville,” and “Big Foot, Little Foot.”
Craig stars in “Totally Baked,” which he also wrote and produced, along with producing the follow up Hulu hit, “420 Comedy Hour.” Currently he is producer/writer for “From the Crib” and “Laughter Heals!” He produced, wrote and starred in the Indy feature, “The LoveMaster,” which won the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival.
Craig’s comedy style has earned him numerous awards, including "Best Male Standup" at the American Comedy Awards on ABC. His work as actor/producer for PRISM, earned Shoemaker 2 NATAS Emmy Awards.
Now “Dr. Shoe” even has a doctorate degree from Cal U of PA, and his new best selling book, “LoveMaster’d,” critically acclaimed by the likes of Whoopi Goldberg and Dr. Drew Pinsky, is helping people worldwide manage and transform through personal struggles.
