Pauley Shore set for merchants honor

Video retail trade group meets in June

Pauly Shore will be honored as comedy entertainer of the year by the Entertainment Merchants Assn. at the video retail trade group's annual convention June 24-26 in Las Vegas. Shore is the writer, director and star of the DVD comedy "Natural Born Komics." The First Look Studios release, in which Shore and celebrity friends do impromptu acts around South Beach, is a followup to 2003's "Pauly Shore Is Dead," which satirized the perils of Hollywood.
