It’s been awhile since Pauly Shore was in the spotlight… a very long while. And while he may not re-enter the spotlight, he does have a new project coming out that does sound a bit compelling. Pauly Shore Stands Alone is a road documentary that follows the comedian around during a recent Midwest stand-up tour. I don’t know what it is, but I’m a sucker for introspective documentaries on washed-up celebrities. Shore had a hard time following his moderate success in the ’90s, but it’s good to see he’s still active in the stand-up scene. I hope the documentary features just as much of his stand-up material as it does scenes about his personal life; that’s not to say that his personal life isn’t interesting, but I’d love to see the material he uses nowadays.
Pauly Shore Stands Alone will premiere on Showtime on December 4th. I suspect a Netflix/VOD release date would follow soon after.
