In reply to: In hospice care 's message, "Healthwatch: Mitzi Shore, Comedy Store impresario; mother of actor Pauly Shore" on Monday, April 09, 12:24:40pm


Comedy Store founder and owner Mitzi Shore has died ... TMZ has learned.

Mitzi, the mother of Pauly Shore, died in L.A. Wednesday morning after battling Parkinson's Disease for years.

Mitzi's Comedy Store was the launching pad for some of the biggest comics in the world, including Robin Williams, Richard Pryor, David Letterman, Jay Leno, Jim Carrey, Chris Rock, Arsenio Hall and Roseanne Barr.

Mitzi had been in hospice for a while, and Pauly took her to the Comedy Store Monday afternoon to say goodbye.

The Comedy Store opened its doors in 1972 on the Sunset Strip, where it's has become a landmark for tourists.

Comics who performed at the venue knew the end was near, because over the last few weeks they would tell the audience to pray for Mitzi.

Pauly said Mitzi was not in pain when she passed.

She's survived by 4 children.

Mitzi was 87.

I'm sure the 1970s period-era series "I'm Dying Up Here" on SHOWTIME channel is somewhat based on Shore. Actress Melissa Leo plays the owner of a fictional, but famed comedy club on the Sunset Strip -both reviled and loved by the up-and-coming comics who go through. -RIP, Mitzi ...PHOTO & VIDEOWednesday, April 11, 09:48:07am
