Special Event: Pauly Shore
Pauly Shore tasted super-stardom in 1990 when his precedent-setting MTV show "Totally Pauly" hit the airwaves to major fan approval. The show ran for six years, leading him to numerous television and film roles including the one-hour HBO television special, “Pauly Does Dallas” and starring in the films "Encino Man," "Son In Law","Jury Duty," "In the Army Now," and "Bio Dome."
After his first album, "The Future of America," was named Best Comedy Album by the college music journalists in 1991, the National Association of Record Merchandisers nominated his second album, "Scraps from the Future," for a Best Sellers Award.
Pauly then went on to star and produce in his own projects including "Pauly Shore Is Dead" for 20th Century Fox, as well as "Adopted," "Vegas is My Oyster," and "Pauly-Tics" all for Showtime.
Most recently, Pauly released “Pauly Shore Stands Alone,” a true-life road documentary that follows him as he performs in obscure towns throughout Wisconsin while dealing with his personal life back home, which also appeared on Showtime.
Additionally, Pauly will be debuting the video portion of his podcast "Pauly Shore Podcast Show," some of his guests include: Ted Sarandos (head of Netflix), Irving Azoff (manager of The Eagles), Ziggy Marley (reggae superstar) and many, many more. These episodes will be released in 2016.
Shore was born Paul Montgomery Shore, the son of Mitzi Shore (née Saidel), who founded The Comedy Store, and Sammy Shore, a comedian. Shore was raised Jewish and grew up in Beverly Hills, graduating from Beverly Hills High School in 1986.
