BURBANK, Calif. — Renowned comedian Pauly Shore (TOTALLY PAULY, ENCINO MAN) will perform live at Flappers Comedy Club in Burbank on Friday, May 15 and 16, at 8:00 PM and 10:00 PM.
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 television and film roles. In 1993, he wrote and starred in a one-hour HBO television special, Pauly Does Dallas, which drew in even more loyal fans.
He had roles in films from 1988, providing supporting comedy relief, but it was the wildly popular Encino Man (1992), partnered with Sean Astin and Brendan Fraser, that put Pauly on the map. Films followed, including Son in Law (1993), In the Army Now (1994), Jury Duty (1995), Bio-Dome (1996) and The Curse of Inferno (1997). He provided voices in animated features such as Casper: A Spirited Beginning (1997) and The Goofy Movie Franchise
His first album, "The Future of America," was named Best Comedy Album by the college music journalists in 1991, while the National Association of Record Merchandisers nominated his second album, "Scraps from the Future,” for a Best Sellers Award.
Pauly has made several appearances in recent years as a recurring guest on Howard Stern's late-night show, as well as David Letterman's talk show. He tours the country with his stand-up comedy act. In 2003, Shore produced, wrote, directed and starred in Pauly Shore Is Dead, a semi-autobiographical mockumentary, and in 2005 starred in the reality television series Minding the Store. His production company, Landing Patch Productions, has produced multiple films and specials: Natural Born Komics (2007), Adopted (2009), Vegas Is My Oyster (2011), and Pauly-tics (2012).
In 2014, true-life road documentary Pauly Shore Stands Alone captured a never-before-seen side of the comedian as he chronicled his life on the road during his Midwestern comedy tour. Cutting between clips of his Infamous stand-up routines, Shore candidly discussed his life outside of comedy, including caring for his ailing mother, legendary Comedy Store owner Mitzi Shore. No topic was off limits as Shore delved into his age, career, love and personal life showing a vulnerable, tender side to his personality and giving the audience a rare opportunity to see the man behind the persona. For the first time, Shore abandoned his comedy shtick to unveil himself in this fascinating and touching documentary.
