For people who came of age in the ‘90s, Pauly Shore will forever be associated with that decade. He first shot to fame as a VJ on MTV, hosting Spring Break parties and his own Totally Pauly show. In between, he found time to make movies: his run of critical flops, but crowd pleasers like Encino Man, Son-In-Law and Bio-Dome turned him into a star with the stoner set. However, Shore's heart has always been in stand-up. His mother legendarily owns The Comedy Store in Los Angeles and was mentored by Sam Kinison. His surfer dude alter-ego “The Weasel” became known for the phrase “Hey, BU-DDY,” which you can still hear people say today. Love him or loathe him, you can’t deny that Pauly Shore’s act had an impact on comedy.
