Saginaw - Jan. 9 Saginaw, MI welcomed comedian Pauly Shore to the Temple Theater, talking about everything from sex, broom closets, biological clocks, and life.
Shore, 44, is most known for his roles as Bones, Crawl, Weasel, and Stoney from the popular 90s movies Son-in-Law, Jury Duty, In the Army Now, Encino Man, and Bio-Dome. Shore got his start, thanks to his mom, who owned The Comedy Store, in Beverly Hills. Soon after, Pauly landed the role of an MTV video DJ. Fans loved his quirky style so much MTV gave him his own show, Totally Pauly, which also landed him numerous MTV Spring Break hosting duties for the years 1990 to 1995.
These days, Pauly isn’t spending a whole lot of time acting, outside of his mockumentaries anyway. Instead, the comedian is back to his roots doing a comedy tour promoting his new show, Pauly-tics. While audience members don’t get to see much of “The Weasel” and he’s not “munching on some serious grindage,” or “squeezing the juice,” Shore did give a few “Sush!” to satisfy audience members. What fans did get was a comedic take on Shore’s life story.
The Temple Theater in Saginaw, Michigan houses the Saginaw Comedy Club, and its little showroom they call the Lizard Lounge, where Shore performed his sold out show. Many thought it was great the show was sold out, others questioned it, while even more were bummed they couldn’t get tickets.
Once the audience members arrived in the theater, it was apparent everyone could see why it was sold out. The audience wasn’t the only ones who noticed. The moment Pauly Shore took stage; this is what he had to say:
“What the f@ck is this Saginaw? A broom closet? They put us in a god d@mn broom closet.”
During the performance Shore would continue with the “walls are closing in’ on him jokes and make wisecracks about the “library broom closet” he was performing in.
Shore was asked why he no longer performed in movies. First, he stated it was the fans fault.
“It’s you people. You stopped coming to my movies. You stopped coming to my shows. Then, Adam Sandler took over. He was number one. I was nobody. It was your fault,” he replied in between bouts of laughter.
Then, he stated it was due in part to his persona Crawl and Weasel. That is how Hollywood sees him; as a “giant retard.” Shore says he would go on casting calls only for the agent to tell him he didn’t get the part because he was “too retarded.”
“I act too retarded,” he told audience members over and over in between bouts of laughter.
Fans learned that Shore had slipped on some ice and hurt his already problematic back. The audience was thankful he pushed through. For a town like Saginaw facing economic hard times, it needed Pauly’s show. After the show Pauly was kind enough to stick around to sign autographs and take photos. Shore seemed humble when speaking to him, the sort to not take things for granted. He appreciated everyone’s kind words as they took their photos and shook their hands. After the whirlwind of his 90s, he seems happy to be slowing down. "My biological party clock has ticked," he told his audience.
