You might know Craig Shoemaker as the unmistakably engaging, iconic, baritone-voiced character, The Lovemaster. Maybe you were one of millions who saw him in his decades of successful stand up comedy. Or you may have seen one of his specials aired on Showtime, HBO, ABC, CBS, NBC and just about every other major network. Perhaps you saw him in a TV show or movie like "Parks & Recreation," "The Bold and The Beautiful," or in "Scream 2?" Or maybe you just recognize his voice: "Pleasantville," many characters in numerous animated series, and all the voices (and even the title song) for the BBC cartoon, "Big Foot, Little Foot." But he's far more than just The Lovemaster...

No matter the topic, including kids, parents, work, sex, sports, ethnicity, etc...no one is exempt from his finely tuned and targeted humor. Once experienced, one will claim he was a fly-on-the-wall during a fight or interlude with a spouse, a go-around with a child, friend or boss and so on.
