“It’s a cool special, I’m proud of it.” Mixing stand-up and interview footage, Shore talks to several politicians and pundits in Washington, which he then muses about onstage. “To me politicians are entertainers,” he says. “I’m always fascinated by people who are funny that don’t know they’re funny.” None of his subjects is the butt of any joke though — quite the opposite. “My focus with the interviews was to make these people come across as human beings.” Shore brings the stand-up part of Pauly-Tics to Funny Bone on the Levee this weekend. “If people have seen me before, it’s a different show,” he notes. “I don’t come across like ‘screw this person,’ or ‘screw this,’ I keep it light. It’s like spring break meets Bill Maher.” $22-$25. 18 and up. Through Saturday, Oct. 20. Funny Bone on the Levee. 859-957-2000, funnyboneonthelevee.com.
