    Craig Shoemaker

    Comedy

    He’s been on Broadway, performed for four US Presidents, and has had recurring roles on network TV, solo comedy specials, hosted/produced reality television, a WGA scribe of film and sitcoms, award winning producer and is a best selling author.  

     

    Craig Shoemaker began his showbiz career doubling as a bartender and comedy emcee, while putting himself through Temple University in his hometown of Philadelphia, before taking his talents to Tinsel Town in 1988. His first Hollywood break was playing the role (twice) as an entertainment reporter on ABC’s “Matlock,” where he worked alongside his 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 Prince 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 – A Digital Journey to Love & Happiness,” is critically acclaimed by the likes of Whoopi Goldberg and Dr. Drew Pinsky, inspiring readers worldwide in managing through personal difficulties.

    Craig’s latest 90-minute standup special, "Daditude,” aired prime time on SHOWTIME Network and was front page on Netflix. His very first Comedy Central show was voted by viewers as one of the “Top 20″ specials of all time. Summer 2015, he produced and starred in the #1 comedy album on I-Tunes, “The Last Stand (Up).”

    Craig’s film, TV and recording credits are extensive. He recurs as Wilson Gromling, the head of the local Pawnee Tea Party, on NBC’s “Parks & Recreation,” had a five episode run on “The Bold & The Beautiful,” was the film professor in Scream 2 and now co-stars as “Bandit” in the movie, “Middle Man.” Craig produced, wrote and starred in the Indy feature, “The LoveMaster,” which won the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival.  When the iconic sitcom “Fuller House” was picked up by Netflix, Craig was called to join the writing staff for season two.  

    A 30-year comedy vet, his unique 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 two NATAS Emmy awards.  

    In 2003 he founded LaughterHeals.org, a nonprofit group dedicated to using laughter as a healing modality. After a personal shift in his own life, Craig is now dedicated to humor with PURPOSE!

    Most importantly, Craig is happily married to his wife Mika and is father to three sons, Justin, Jared and Jackson, along with toddler daughter Chloe.  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’s nice. So cool you’re verified on Twitter.”

    Cory and Chad

    Comedy

    Cory and Chad, The Smash Brothers, are identical twin brothers born and raised outside of Los Angeles in the Inland Empire.  Growing up with a biker for a dad, and a Post Office delivery lady for a mom, they moved frequently and attended a total of 14 different schools during childhood.  Always being the new kids made them adapt by being outgoing and spontaneously humorous to gain new friendships. 

     

    Despite their identical DNA, The Smash Brothers are almost polar opposites in personality and lifestyle.  Cory is “the good twin” of the two, with a calm and passive personality he refrains from drinking and partying to keep the two grounded.  Chad is “the evil twin”, with his bad boy personality and crazy, wild partying ways that keeps Cory on his toes.

     

    Growing up identical twins, Cory and Chad found many hilarious ways to get through life by switching roles and using each other to benefit the duo.  The two will shock and surprise you on stage with what each will say or do next.  The Smash Brothers have impeccable timing and a fantastic way of working the crowd.  They’ll share comedic stories of growing up and all the antics involved in being identical twins.  The Smash Brothers are a must-see as one of LA’s top comedy duo performances. 

     

    Cory and Chad started doing stand-up comedy in 2004.  In 2006, they created, produced, and directed The Dirty Show, their monthly hit comedy show that can be seen at the Ontario, California Improv.  The Dirty Show has numerous sold out performances and is currently the longest running comedy show at any Improv in the United States.  In 2007, they appeared on the first season of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? and discovered that, combined together, they are only as smart as a 4th grader!  Between 2012 through 2017, The Smash Brothers toured the country multiple times with Ralphie May and were a fixture of his Filthy Animal Tour.  In 2015 they filmed and are featured in Andrew Dice Clay’s The Blue Show currently on the Showtime Network.
