Show Time: 
Sunday 5:00PM - 5:59PM
Show Description: 

The unscripted show follows the lives of long-time standup comedian, Craig Shoemaker, and his first son (of four children), Justin Shoemaker, as the eighteen-year-old tries to make the leap from high school to the real world.
Should a boy follow in his father’s footsteps, especially when his dad is a COMEDIAN? Comedy is what Craig knows best, but it doesn’t stop him from assuming the role of mentor, no matter what the situation. It could be a sport he hasn’t played in 30 years, or advising on finances when he’s close to bankruptcy, Craig remains undaunted when it comes to advising his kids. The first born gets the brunt of it though! Very rarely solicited, the advice flows from the one who knows, often leading to a fail, or fall, in the case of a pogo stick lesson gone wrong.
