Stand-up comic, actor, writer, director Pauly Shore tasted super-stardom in 1990 when his precedent-setting MTV show “Totally Pauly” (1990) hit the airwaves to major fan approval. The show ran for four years, opening the door wide for him for television and film roles. In 1993, he wrote and starred in a one-hour HBO television special, Pauly Does Dallas (1993) (TV), 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, In the Army Now, Jury Duty, Bio-Dome and The Curse of Inferno. He provided voices in animated features such as Casper: A Spirited Beginning (V) and An Extremely Goofy Movie (V). His first comedy 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 and Craig Kilborn’s talk shows. Recently Pauly’s works have included “Pauly-Tics,” covering a range of political commentary mixed with witty and sharp humor. Along with this, his critically acclaimed “Pauly Shore is Dead,” will soon be released digitally this year. He tours the country with his stand-up comedy act.
