Stand-up comedian Craig Shoemaker, best known for his bawdy character the Lovemaster, is now introducing his fans to a decidedly different character: the Diapermaster. Since his wife, Carolyn, gave birth to their first child last July, Shoemaker has been trying to adjust to the sometimes difficult demands of fatherhood. His domestication is the focal point of 45 new minutes in his stand-up act .

BREA 8:30 p.m. Comedy Voted funniest male stand-up comedian at the 1997 American Comedy Awards, Craig Shoemaker is best known for his bawdy "Love Master" alter ego--a deep, sultry-voiced character full of sexual braggadocio ("Walk nasty for the Love Master"). But Shoemaker is more than that. He's a gifted comedian and impressionist who can portray everything from Barney Fife in sexual ecstasy to Luciano Pavarotti singing a commercial for Rice Krispies. * Craig Shoemaker, Brea Improv, 945 E.

Craig Shoemaker was abandoned by his father at the age of 1 month, a formative betrayal that blighted his childhood and trickled poisonously into his adult life. A comedian of 20 years' standing, Shoemaker addresses his lifelong longing for a father figure and his own halting path to paternity in "Who's Your Daddy?," his autobiographical one-man show, directed by John Achorn, now at the Coronet's new Studio Theatre space.

Ooooooo. This is almost too good. The LoveMaster can't get a date. Craig Shoemaker--the 6-foot-2, John Boy Walton look-alike who sends women swooning with his deep-voiced, sexually suggestive comments-- can't get a date. The comedian-actor is having a career year working on a feature film ("Safe House" with Patrick Stewart) and television pilots, doing stand-up across the country and recording TV voice-overs.

Most comedians have two goals in life. One is to get off the road; the other is to get into the movies or at least television. Craig Shoemaker has parlayed his LoveMaster persona into both. Last month he premiered his first movie, "The LoveMaster," in Austin, Texas, and expects it to open to a wider audience in April, depending on how distribution talks go.
