Best known for his smooth-talking, baritone Lovemaster persona, Craig Shoemaker lures giggles out into the open with stories and a penchant for vocal impersonation that could shame a mockingbird. His keen observations, warped tales from his life, and dead-on impersonation of Don Knotts helped him snag the title of Comedian of the Year at the American Comedy Awards on ABC. With a resumé that includes a Comedy Central special voted by viewers as one of the top 20 of all time and a comedy album, The Lovemaster … Unzipped, that stayed on the Billboard Top 20 for six weeks straight, Shoemaker’s talents have landed him stints acting, voicing animated characters, authoring wry children’s books, and even performing marriages as an ordained minister.
Craig Shoemaker as The Lovemaster
Warning: contains raunchy humor, even raunchier puns, and staggering descriptions of anatomy
A theater on the National Register of Historic Places, the Wilbur Theatre is now a premier venue for comedy and music. When it was built in 1914, the architect Clarence H. Blackall designed its porticos and brick façade with inspiration drawn from American Colonial architecture, characterized by a Federal Revival style that included powdered wigs hanging over every doorway. "The auditorium is, in its chaste way," architectural historian Douglas Tucci is quoted as saying on the theater's website, "the handsomest of any Boston playhouse."
