What comedian do you know that has 2 Emmys, appeared on Broadway and was voted “Best Male Standup” at the American Comedy Awards? That’s right, it’s “The Lovemaster” Craig Shoemaker!

Craig has also been featured as a voiceover artist, voicing multiple characters in hits such as Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 and the upcoming animated show Big Foot, Little Foot. Currently, Craig hosts the hilarious and one-of-a-kind podcast “Laugh it Off” that deals with today’s problems through laughter. The podcast takes the #35 spot on iTunes, and continues to rise! Guests of the show have included Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Harrison, Adam Carolla, Tom Bergeron and Hall & Oates. In 2003, Craig used his exceptional talent as a comedian to help found the Laughter Heals Foundation, which is his nonprofit organization dedicated to using laughter as a healing modality.
