Ladies love a guy with a good sense of humor, so it should come as no surprise that funny-as-hell comedian CRAIG SHOEMAKER (right) has an alter ego called "the Love Master." Shoemaker has appeared on Broadway, the silver screen and the small screen, but has found the most success in the world of stand-up. As a matter of fact, in July, XM radio's XM Comedy 150 ran an 11-hour show counting down the 150 funniest comedy bits as voted on by fans, and Shoemaker's "Playing Army" came in at No. 1. This "man's man" starts his three-day Atlanta stint at the Punchline DEC. 1. $23.50. Fri., 8 and 10 p.m.; Sat., 7, 9 and 11 p.m.; Sun., 7 p.m. 280 Hilderbrand Drive. 404-252-5233. www.punchline.com.
