He’s been on Broadway, performed standup comedy for four US Presidents, guest starred with recurring acting roles on network TV, performed solo television specials, and hosted/produced reality television. He is a WGA scribe of film and sitcoms, an award-winning producer, and a best selling author.
Craig began his showbiz career in his hometown of Philadelphia, doubling as a bartender and comedy emcee, while;e putting himself through Temple University, before taking his talents to Tinsel Town in 1988. His first Hollywood break was playing a role (twice) as an entertainment reporter on ABC’s ‘Matlock,’ where he worked alongside childhood idols, ‘Andy Griffith’ and Don Knotts. Craig then had the opportunity to guest star opposite fellow Philadelphian Will Smith as a ghost boxer in a special episode of ‘Fresh Price of Bel Air’.
This was only the beginning of what was followed by several successful TV stand-up specials and numerous co-starring roles in feature films and TV. Now Dr. Shoe even has a doctorate degree from Cal U of PA, and his best selling book, LoveMaster’d’ is critically acclaimed by the likes of Whoopi Goldberg and Dr. Drew Pinsky, helping readers worldwide to manage and transform through personal difficulties.
Craig’s latest 90 minute stand-up special ‘Daditude’ in which he also served as Executive Producer, aired prime time on Showtime. ‘Shoemaker is insightful and amusing… we are moved beyond laughter to tears,’ says the Los Angeles Times. His very first Comedy Central show was voted by viewers as one of the ‘Top 20’ specials of all time. His second ‘Unzipped’ aired to mass acclaim and the audio CD was Billboard Top 20 for six weeks. In summer of 2015, he produced and starred in the #1 album on iTunes, ‘The Last Stand (Up).’ Two stand-up bits made it to the all time Top 10 list on XM Radio!
