Pauly Shore Joins Foo Fighters Onstage for Weird, Wonderful Tribute to Comedian’s Late Father
The entertainment world lost a key player this past week, a man responsible for bringing many laughs to the world. Sammy Shore co-founded The Comedy Store in Los Angeles with his former wife Mitzi Shore. Sammy was an entertainer who also is the father of Pauly Shore, the actor-comedian who was on hand at Sonic Temple over the weekend as part of the comedy stage lineup. Sammy Shore died Saturday (May 18) at the age of 92.
Foo Fighters made sure to mark the occasion in their set Sunday night at Sonic Temple, playing "My Hero" and dedicating the song to Pauly and his father. During the performance, Pauly Shore was standing side of the stage wearing a photo of his late father on his shirt. Grohl made sure to have the cameras focus on the shirt, while Shore briefly addressed the crowd.
"Thank you Dave & @foofighters for this tribute to Sammy," wrote The Comedy Store, posting the video tribute on their Instagram account. Watch the emotional moment play out in the video below.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Sammy Shore died of natural causes at his home in Las Vegas on Saturday. His career began as a comedian working in the "Borscht Belt" of New York's Catskill Mountains and eventually took him to Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Shore once opened Elvis Presley's comeback tour and he worked with many comedians and musicians.
Pauly Shore not only addressed his father's passing, but also thanked Foo Fighters on social media for their tribute.
