What a burden it must have been to have a career given to him by his mother.
What a burden it must be to be most working actors.
I bet they all wish their mom owned The Comedy Store.

This looks really good.
A really leveled up Pauly Shore starts to look like a Richard Simmons

While I've never really found Shore entertaining, I can't say I dislike him.
Which puts him well ahead of Dane Cook.
I hate his fucking guts because he smokes. No idea who he is otherwise.
I'd watch one about Dane Cook too; it's not about the comedy, but the human condition, and from what little I know about Cook, I'm pretty sure he hasn't done anything inhuman (except maybe tell jokes that sound like a robot wrote them.. zing.) And I vaguely remember Shore. He was kind of funny in Encino Man but I was 8, and was too young to remember his time on MTV. Fuck, I'd be fascinated by a different VJ I do remember, Jesse Camp, another "what happened to that guy?" guy.
I remember watching a similar on-the-road doc with David Cross, who I do love, and watched for the jokes. But at one point you see Bob Odenkirk, who really looked bad. As my favorite of the Mr. Show pair, it was really sad to see him almost forcing out a joke through what looked like tears. His career was kind of in the shitter after a few bombed movies and, well, basically not much after Mr. Show. I don't expect a Saul Goodman-esque revival of Shore's career to come from this doc, but I'd like to know more about the man behind The Weasel, or whateverthefuck it was that he did.
Bob Odenkirk actually was fine after Mr. Show. Yeah, he had some bombs, but he was producing and funding a lot of stuff, such as (love or hate 'em) Tim and Eric. That and Bob was never much of a stand up, more on an improv and writing guy.
I like the Dane Cook bits where he pretends to be a serial killing rapist.
Yeah I stand corrected; I also forgot he directed Melvin Goes to Dinner in 2003 which was a great film. The only scene I can seem to find is the trailer (suffer through The Shins if you dare:)
there's other scenes too, but I forgot that Odenkirk picked back up pretty quickly, whereas Shore.. I dunno. His imdb catalogue's pretty full, but I'm not sure who's watching. It's kind of like going to Branson Missouri. What happened to Yakov Smirnoff? He's selling out every night. What happened to Pauly shore? I'm curious.

Sucks his mom has Parkinson's but it's not like the dude ever had to work for a paycheck in his life before.
Five for not being able to find any actually funny jokes to put in the trailer.

He's no Yahoo Serious.

I want to see a super Yahoo Serious serious documentary.
Being Pauly Shore, that is his crime; it is also his punishment.

Pauly Shore is the Carrot Top of Pauly Shores.

I never feel that sorry for people who were incredibly famous at one point and made tons of money but don't anymore. There are far worse fates to have.

On the totem pole of comedy, only Dustin Diamond and Gallagher are beneath him.

The pseudo uplifting stock music really tells you that Pauly Shore is on the path to redeeming his career.
