Becoming a comedic legend isn't easy. Sometimes it happens when you're least expecting it. For Pauly Shore, it happened so fast that he almost missed it.

In the early 90s, Shore landed a coveted VJ spot on MTV. He managed to build his brand enough to secure himself a spot in the surprise hit Encino Man with Brendan Frasier. The movie became a huge hit (much to the surprise of everyone) and so suddenly Shore became a hot commodity.

It wasn't all simple for Shore. He had a lot of bad reviews and many movies flopped at the box office, but it didn't phase him. "If I let the people who hate me get to me, I'd sit at home and never do anything. Most people who can't appreciate me are bitter and jealous people," Shore said. "What I'm doing has never been done before – going out and talking to the camera like it's America."

He got a new TV show that was all his own, but that didn't turn out as great as he had hopped. The show only lasted five episodes on Fox. They didn't even bother airing the final two that were filmed. It bombed both critically and with the fans, and it led to Shore stepping out of the spotlight.

But what has he been up to since?
