Craig Shoemaker:
  • The Lovemaster
  • Parks & Recreation

  • Craig Shoemaker's comedy style has earned him numerous awards, including "Best Male Standup" at the American Comedy Awards on ABC. Shoe's latest standup special, "Daditude,” aired prime time on SHOWTIME Network and his very first Comedy Central special "The Lovemaster" was voted by viewers as one of the “Top 20″ of all time. 

    Also voted Elevate Film Festival’s “Best Supporting Actor,” Craig’s film, TV and recording credits are extensive. He recurred as Wilson Gromling, head of Pawnee's “Liberty or Die Party” on NBC’s “Parks & Recreation” and had a five episode role on “The Bold & Beautiful” and a guest star on MTV's, “Awkward.” Craig also had significant roles in the films “Scream 2,” “Safe House” and “Totally Baked,” which he also wrote/produced. Early 2016 he will be seen as "Bandit" in the indie movie, "Middle Man."
    Summer 2015, he produced and starred in the #1 comedy album on I-Tunes, “The Last Stand (Up).” Craig has countless standup TV appearances, including two on HBO’s prestigious “Comic Relief,” which he co-hosted from New Orleans in 2008. 

    Dr. Shoe is passionate about going beyond the comedy, officiating weddings as well as assisting people in mastering love & happiness. In 2003 he founded, a nonprofit group dedicated to using laughter as a healing modality. And Dr. Shoe's book "LoveMaster'd" is critically acclaimed by the likes of Whoopi Goldberg and Dr. Drew Pinsky. 

    But credits, schmedits. Most importantly, Craig is happily married to his beautiful wife and is father to three sons, and a toddler daughter. Yes, the LoveMaster has mastered love and success, but a teen friend of his son sums up this performer’s career, when he nervously approached Craig and said, “Mr. Shoemaker, it is so cool you are verified on Twitter.” #Classic
