GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - Comedian Pauly Shore is probably best known for his antics as a "veejay" on MTV and for wacky feature films like "Bio-Dome" and "Son in Law." Now, Shore returns to the comedy backbone of stand-up. Shore says that the all new material he's bringing to Grand Junction relates back to his films and past endeavors, content he calls "Pauly-biographical.""People always seem to be interested in my past," Shore said. Shore's 2013 tour is going to Grand Junction-sized cities in Arizona, Wisconsin and Minnesota, but he says, "It's going into heaven." Shore was last in Grand Junction in 2010, and said the show sold a lot of tickets and that he felt a very positive response from the crowd. Shore says he enjoys playing smaller cities."People from smaller towns are more themselves," Shore said. "I don't really care where I perform as long as people are having fun."Shore has done a lot since his departure from TV and film. "The past 10 years have been really busy," Shore said. Shore's recent stand up special "Pauly-tics" had him talking politics with Larry King, suit shopping with former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, learning about gay marriage from Barney Frank, and shooting pool with former presidential candidate Herman Cain. Shore even does some digging and finds out why Ralph Nader "loves corporate America."His shows, "Vegas is my Oyster," "Pauly Does Dallas" and "Pauly Shore is Dead" are available for download along with "Pauly-tics" at his website, www.paulyshore.com."Now, at 45, I'm set up to do whatever I want," Shore said. "The luxury is pretty awesome."Shore says he's been directing and producing outside of his stand-up career with projects like a TV pilot, a dramatic feature film and a documentary. Looking back at a zany career from MTV, film and now to stand up, Shore said that "there's more drama to pull from, anything can happen."Shore's Saturday night show at the Avalon starts at 8 p.m. with doors opening at 7. The show is restricted to those ages 18 and up. Tickets are $30, available in advance at City Market stores, online at www.ticketswest.com or by calling 1-866-464-2626. All seats are reserved."I keep creating stuff, and I like it," Shore said.
