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. Shoemaker’s standup is filled with keen observations, warped tales from his life, and a dead-on impersonation of Don Knotts. With a resume that includes a Comedy Central special voted by viewers as one of the top 20 of all time, Shoemaker’s talents have landed him stints acting, voicing animated characters, and authoring wry children’s books.
Originally built as a 1930s art-deco movie palace, Arlington Drafthouse ‘N’ Cinema caters to the comfort of showgoers with oversize chairs and table-side wait service. The recently revamped menu satisfies savory cravings with appetizers, sandwiches, and pizzas, and splashes from a full bar keep whistles wet and ensures that no wicked witches come out to heckle.
