Pauly Shore is an American comedian, actor, and filmmaker. Comedy is a family business at the Shore household with both his parents being esteemed comedians, and Pauly not only expanded on their work but reached newer heights than even his parents.

As of April 2020, Pauly Shore’s net worth is $20 million.

How Did Pauly Shore Make His Money?

Born to comedian parents, it is no wonder Pauly Shore started out doing stand-up comedy. He debuted at age 17 on the stage of Alley Cat Bistro in Culver City, California.

He started gaining traction under his stage name ‘The Weasel.’

Paul broke into the mainstream when he landed the gig of VJ for MTV. He had a long-running stint from 1989 to 1994 and even starred in his own show, Totally Pauly.

He then made the transition to acting. He made his debut in the 1988 comedy movie For Keeps. The same year, he appeared in the comedy movie 18 Again!

He found further success in the 1992 comedy movie Encino Man starring Brendan Fraser and Sean Astin. He then went on to appear in movies like Class Act, Jury Duty, In the Army Now, Opposite Day, and Stonerville.

He has also produced, directed, and starred in a series of vanity projects like the mockumentaries Pauly Shore Is Dead, Pauly Shore Stands Alone, Pauly Shore’s Vegas Is My Oyster, and Pauly Shore’s Pauly~tics.

Real Estate

In 1996, Pauly’s Hollywood Hills home was valued at $1,960,000. The 4500-square-foot home had four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms.

The one-story house was originally built in 1959, but Pauly had it remodelled extensively in 2015. Perched atop a sky-high ridgeline, an outdoor deck provides an almost-360-degree view of the surrounding neighbourhood. The house provides an “indoor-outdoor-living”  experience with its glass sliders for walls. The central living space also has a modern fireplace.

The kitchen was also remodelled to have an air of sophistication with its stainless-steel appliances and large center aisle with a thick marble countertop. The house is also retro-fitted with a sound system and a dry sauna. The floor is furnished with concrete-coloured tiles.

Outdoors, the house has an infinity pool with a spa and a two-car garage with an external parking space.

When Paul was not living in the house, he put it up for lease and asked as much as $27000 a month for rent.

Paul put the home up for sale in January 2020 for $9.5 million after failing to attract any buyers at its initial $13 million market rate.
