GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - WhatupWhatup! Funnyman and stand-up comic Pauly Shore is bringing his best to the New Hope Cinema Grill this weekend and took time to stop by KARE 11 News Studios @4 to say hello.
According to the Pauly Shore website, he loves leaving his home of Los Angeles and visiting small town America.
According to Wikipedia, Shore's big break came as an on-air MTV VJ, a position he held from 1989 to 1994. At the height of his MTV fame, Shore had his own show, Totally Pauly, serving as a host, most memorably on MTV's annual Spring Break parties. He also released a music video, "Lisa, Lisa, The One I Adore".
In 1992, Shore starred in Encino Man which was a modest hit. Encino Man's success propelled Shore to star in additional personalized vehicles, albeit less successful: Son in Law (1993), In the Army Now (1994), Jury Duty (1995), and Bio-Dome (1996). He makes a cameo appearance in the American rock band Limp Bizkit music video "N 2 Gether Now", as a pizza deliveryman, and a briefer appearance in Break Stuff.
In 2003, Shore produced, wrote, directed and starred in Pauly Shore Is Dead, a semi-autobiographical mockumentary, and in 2005 starred in the short lived reality television series Minding the Store. In 2010 Shore starred in Adopted, which sees him traveling to Africa to adopt a child.
Shore is appearing at the New Hope Cinema Grill for two shows Friday and Saturday.
