In his stand-up act, Shore devotes a considerable portion of his set to deprecating all over himself. ''I know there are a lot of people out there who are not Pauly Shore fans,'' he's said onstage. ''You probably know some of these cocksuckers. You probably had a conversation with them this afternoon: 'What are you doing tonight — going to see Pauly Shore? Fuck that fa**ot. Call me after.'''
