Pauly 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 numerous TV and film roles, including the one-hour HBO TV special, “Pauly Does Dallas” and starring in films like "Jury Duty," "In the Army Now," "Bio Dome," and those that are currently trending on Netflix, “Encino Man,” “Son In Law,” and “The Goofy Movie.”
After his first album, "The Future of America," was named Best Comedy Album by the College Music Journalists in 1991, the National Association of Record Merchandisers nominated his second album, "Scraps from the Future," for a Best Sellers Award.
Pauly then went on to star in and produce his own projects, including "Pauly Shore is Dead" for 20th Century Fox, which is now available on Amazon Prime. He also produced and starred in his comedy specials "Vegas is My Oyster," starring Andy Dick, Tom Green, Bobby Lee and more, and "Pauly-Tics," starring Herman Cain, Larry King and more, all available on Crackle.
Most recently, Pauly released “Pauly Shore Stands Alone,” a true-life road documentary that follows him as he performs in obscure towns throughout Wisconsin while dealing with his personal life back home, which also appeared on Showtime and is available on Amazon Prime.
