Pauly Shore 6/6 *SPECIAL EVENT*
With a comedic history dating back to 1990 when he hit the scene with his first TV show, Totally Pauly, Pauly Shore has been breaking barriers and pushing the limits in entertainment. Running for six years, this introduction on MTV led to numerous television and film roles, including the HBO special, Pauly Does Dallas and starring roles in the films Encino Man, Son In Law, Jury Duty, In The Army Now, and BioDome.
Going on to produce and star in his own projects like Pauly Shore Is Dead, Vegas Is My Oyster, and Pauly-Tics, all currently available on Amazon Prime, Pauly branched out into more personal projects. His comedic instinct and knowledge of the entertainment business allowed him to move forward in his career.
Now Pauly is currently documenting his life growing up at The Comedy Store in West Hollywood through the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. He recently played Stephen Miller in a viral Funny or Die sketch that has over 2 million views and co-wrote in an original Funny or Die sketch, “Silver Lake Vice Squad” with Bobby Lee, Jay Mohr and Richard Schiff (The West Wing, Ballers). Pauly and comedian Faizon Love (Friday, Couples Retreat) currently star in a sketch titled “Bad Paramedics.”
We get to experience a retrospect of his career in comedy, acting and entertainment this week at McCurdy’s!
Jamie Kennedy 6/7-6/8 *SPECIAL EVENT*
A true renaissance man, covering the genres of comedy, drama, animation, reality, horror, action and thriller, Jamie Kennedy comes to us with a truly creative look at the world around us. Along his career path, he has also written his own book, Wannabe, and recorded his own record Blowin’ Up. Kennedy stands now with the experience of being a part of over 40 films with such industry entities as Dimension, Fox, Universal, Warner Bros., New Line, Sony, and Disney, totaling a gross of over 2 billion dollars in worldwide box-office sales. He has appeared on Oprah, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Late Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel, George Lopez, and Larry King Live to name a few.
His current podcast, Hate To Break It To Ya, covers a plethora of ground-breaking topics, combining serious industry issues with the absurdity of the situation. So many aspects of our culture lack common sense, but thankfully Jamie is here to point it out to us and remind us that over-inflated egos have no place in this society.
