entertaining, honest, and hilarious!
15 October 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

If you are a fan of stand-up comedy, you have to see this movie. Craig Shoemaker's material comes to life in the perfect mix of acting and stand-up comedy. Before seeing this, I thought Shoemaker's stand-up was hilarious, but couldn't possibly be true. It's definitely true. This movie is basically a genuine look at how Craig Shoemaker became the comedian he is today. He is a master of humorous storytelling and his impersonations are almost too accurate. This film is the perfect example of how Shoemaker's humor really has no limits. While most comedians seem to stick to the cliché topics, Craig Shoemaker is able to always adapt and create new material. I really enjoyed this movie and would recommend it to any fans of comedy.
