Encino Dad


How hadn't it come to this before? A new reality show called Adopted will follow Pauly Shore as he adopts an African baby. The show's official website dubs it a mockumentary film (that, perhaps, will be broken down into installments for distribution -- unless there's just faulty Post reportage). But the baby's adoption is only the beginning! The fresh-procured child learns its first steps at grandmother Mitzi's The Comedy Store in Hollywood, where Dom Irrera jokingly blows a wad of cigar smoke in its face and a fast-talking, old-school agent explains to it that they "already have a black comic" for that night. You've gotta learn the ropes, kid! You can read more about this in Pauly's harrowing upcoming memoir: Hollywood: A Bio-Dome of Prejudice. [NY Post]
