What do we even need to say about Pauly Shore? His run on MTV transitioned to the big screen, making him one of the most iconic comedy stars in America. He operates one of the most important comedy venues in the country (The Comedy Store in L.A.). And through it all, he has always stayed close to his fans with personal appearances, stand-up tours and podcasts. When he said he was coming to town in May -- AND he wanted to do some shows in our lounge -- it was an absolute no-brainer. Get up close with one of the most famous faces in the business!

Pauly Shore tasted super-stardom in 1990 when his MTV show “Totally Pauly” hit the airwaves to major fan approval. The show ran for six years, leading Pauly to a one-hour HBO comedy special, “Pauly Does Dallas,” and starring roles in films like “Jury Duty,” “In the Army Now,” “Bio-Dome,” “Encino Man,” “Son In Law,” and “A Goofy Movie.”
Pauly went on to produce and star in several of his own projects, including “Pauly Shore is Dead,” as well as the comedy specials “Vegas is My Oyster,” starring Andy Dick, Tom Green, Bobby Lee, and “Pauly-Tics,” starring Herman Cain and Larry King.
In 2014, he released “Pauly Shore Stands Alone,” a true-life road documentary that follows Pauly as he performs in obscure towns throughout Wisconsin while dealing with his personal life. It appeared on Showtime and is available on Amazon Prime. Other recent projects include Adam Sandler's "Sandy Wexler," the short film "Sin City Psycho.” In 2020, Pauly will star in the movie “Guest House” and voice a character in the animated film “The Big Trip.”
Pauly released a series of video interviews in 2017 called the “Pauly Shore Podcast Show.” His guests included Judd Apatow, Iliza Shlesinger, Ziggy Marley, Brett Ratner, Daymond John, Harland Williams, Fred Durst, David Faustino, Doug Herzog, Dexter Holland, Bob Saget and more.
Currently, Pauly has a weekly, Big Brother-style video podcast called “Pauly Shore’s Random Rants” which you can find on Soundcloud, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher and YouTube (www.youtube.com/PaulyShore).
Apart from actively touring the country with his stand-up comedy (www.PaulyShore.com). Pauly is working on a documentary of his life that spans the 1960s, ’70s, ’80s and ’90s.
