Last week I got to talk to Pauly Shore for the 30th anniversary of Encino Man, and now I’m sharing the audio version for you earholes. This was a pretty cool interview, because as you can hear, I wore out quite a few Pauly Shore movies back when I was a kid. I also think he’s a really interesting character, who sort of got unfairly punished just for getting famous right at the tail end of the hair metal era. Not to mention having had an interesting life, being the son of the owners of the Comedy Store and becoming basically a superstar in his early twenties. As you can hear, he’s still a pretty funny dude. One of my favorite things about this was Pauly effortlessly shutting down my attempts to riff with him, which to me ended up being way funnier than if he’d actually played along and yes-anded me. “What? Yeah, whatever, anyway..”
Like I said, I think Pauly is a super interesting guy and I hope you guys enjoy listening to this interview as much as I enjoyed doing it. Frot on.
