"Pauly Shore was always a clown, but in his new documentary, Pauly Shore Stands Alone, he's officially the crying-on-the-inside type of clown." -Jeff Labrecque, Entertainment Weekly

The full spectrum of human emotions and condition are on display in PAULY SHORE STANDS ALONE, which showcases the brutally honest self-portrait of the sadness behind the clown. Pauly Shore, once a successful stand-up comedian, directs himself in this raw, cinema verite style documentary. Years after his Hollywood golden era of the 90s, Shore sets out up to revive his career – or document its decline – as he goes on the road, through snow-covered towns, appearing in small comedy clubs strewn throughout the midwest. In Shore's typical self-deprecating and free style uncensored performance, he gets his audience to laugh and strangely draws us, the viewer, to empathize with him. While you watch Shore taking charge of his elderly, ailing mother, or exchanging raunchy comments with members of his audience, you find yourself cheering him on and hoping that Pauly Shore will not stand alone for long.

Stand-up comic, actor, writer, director Pauly Shore tasted super-stardom in 1990 when his precedent-setting MTV show "Totally Pauly" hit the airwaves to major fan approval. The show ran for six years, leading him to television and film roles. In 1993, he wrote and starred in a one-hour HBO television special, Pauly Does Dallas, 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 (1993), In the Army Now (1994), Jury Duty (1995), Bio-Dome (1996) and The Curse of Inferno (1997). He provided voices in animated features such as Casper: A Spirited Beginning (1997) and The Goofy Movie Franchise (1995/2000).

His first 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 talk show. He tours the country with his stand-up comedy act.

In 2003, Shore produced, wrote, directed and starred in Pauly Shore Is Dead, a semi-autobiographical mockumentary, and in 2005 starred in the reality television series Minding the Store. His production company, Landing Patch Productions, has produced multiple films and specials: Natural Born Komics (2007), Adopted (2009), Vegas Is My Oyster (2011), and Pauly~tics (2012).

Pauly is also debuting a podcast series later this year: Pauly Shore’s Interested. In it, he interviews Arsenio Hall, Chris Rock, Whitney Cummings, Former RNC Chair Michael Steele, Dodger’s pitcher Brian Wilson, and many many more.
