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,” on Showtime starring Andy Dick, Tom Green, Bobby Lee, and “Pauly-Tics,” on Showtime 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 and YouTube.
Other recent projects include Adam Sandler’s “Sandy Wexler,” the short film “Sin City Psycho” and Dreamworks’ animated “The Big Trip.” In 2020, Pauly stars in the movie “Guest House”, which is currently streaming on Netflix (digital and on-demand). Pauly also starred in Lionsgates’ animated film “The Little Penguin: Pororo’s Dinosaur Island Adventure.” Pauly appeared in the 2021 indie feature How it Ends starring Whitney Cummings, Olivia Wilde, Nick Kroll and more.
Pauly released a series of video interviews in 2017 called the “Pauly Shore Podcast Show.” His guests included Judd Apatow, Iliza Shlesinger, Bob Saget and more. Currently, Pauly has a bi-weekly video podcast called “Pauly Shore’s Random Rants” which you can find on Bill Burr’s All Things Comedy, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher and YouTube.
Pauly also has a bi-weekly five minute workout show called Sweatin with the Wiez. Every other week Pauly uploads music videos with his band ‘Pauly Shore and The Crusty’s, which can be seen on YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok.
Apart from actively touring the country with his stand-up comedy, Pauly is working on a documentary of his life that spans the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s along with a memoir called “How’d You Expect Me to Turn Out” and a one man show about his life entitled “Stick with the Dancing: Funny Stories From my Childhood”.
