The reason I titled my review as I did , is simply that in the three stand up DVDs Craig has out... he repeats his best bits , often. In fact about 75% is the same disc to disc and show to show , with slight variations. Unlike Carlin, Miller, Reagan, Titus and others who work for a couple of years polishing new material and then FILM THAT SHOW, Craig is always filming a version of his only show.... BUT IT IS A REALLY FUNNY ACT!
I guess what I'm saying is, if you don't have one of his DVDs... starting here is as good as anywhere. If you already own Craig Shoemaker: The Lovemaster... Unzipped or Craig Shoemaker: Live - That's A True Story! don't expect a new show, just a slightly different show , but still the unique Shoemaker show that only Craig offers.
Of course saying what I have, some folks get disappointed when they go to see their favorite singer or stand up and they get an all new set of stories and jokes and they may have just been looking to re hear all their favorites from an old friend. My gal and I actually get to see Craig semi regularly and we usually still get a kick out of the "old favorites" as they are.
I mostly wanted to make it clear that while the title implies that this is a new show, its just another version of THE show, but it is still a five star show at a lot higher price than what this DVD goes for!
In that way, Shoemaker's reflections have a decidedly nostalgic feel. As he discusses things from his past, there is a sweetness and a familiarity that make this a really identifiable set. But don't be lulled into a false sense of security for Shoemaker can certainly veer into uproarious political incorrectness as well. I'm oddly disconcerted and amused that his physical comedy for drunk people closely resembles what he enacts for the mentally disabled (see, I'm being PC in my description). But that's part of his appeal for me. In the final act, Shoemaker's signature character The Lovemaster surfaces for a unending barrage of new material. And what could be more satisfying to long time fans than that? If you like Shoemaker, this is a solid set. And if you are unfamiliar with him, this is a satisfying introduction. Like an old friend, I was happy to spend a hour with this comedy performance. KGHarris, 4/13.
I would love to see Craig put out a completely new act on DVD for us longer-time fans!
Overall this is a good one to add to your stand-up collection.
