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?

'Mad About You' Stars Officially Sign On To A Revival And Reveal What They've Got Planned

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival. In the last year alone, we've seen two other huge 90s hits come back and exceed expectations. Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all

Shelley Duval Says That Robin Williams Is Alive And She Knows Where He Is

Robin Williams was one of our generations finest actors. He was a comedic genius with a mind that was constantly running a mile a minute. He was more clever than any of us could ever hope to be, and we were lucky to have had him for the short time we did. While he passed away too young, Williams made a lot of amazing hit movies. Movies like Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, and Good Will Hunting all proved he was capable at making entertaining content that we all loved. But his first big staring role in a motion picture was actually

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it
