Awesome movie!
12 July 2004 | by (North Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

If you're a fan of Craig Shoemaker's stand-up comedy, you will love this movie. Not only does it show a lot of Craig's stand-up comedy in clubs, it shows how the material came to be written. In a stream of consciousness way, it bounces from Craig in a psychiatrist's office, to doing stand-up, to Craig in "real life" where he experienced what later became the joke. It shows Craig as a little boy trying to get attention from his pot-smoking grandmother and his belly-dancing mother. You see how Craig comes up with his famous character and alter-ego "The Lovemaster". I laughed so hard I almost fell on the floor! There are also appearances by Farrah Fawcett, Courtney Thorne-Smith, George Wendt and Harley Jane Kozak. I'm so glad that I bought this movie because I can't wait to watch it with my friends who also love Craig Shoemaker.
