Episode Summary

The Comedy Store
The famous club The Comedy Store was founded in 1972 by stand-up comedian Sammy Shore, but its success is largely due to the role of his wife Mitzi Shore, who gained control of the club in 1974 after their divorce, and played a mother role for many of the comics whose careers were begun there, including her youngest son, Pauly Shore. Also recounted is the 1979 strike against the club by comedians who demanded that they start receiving payment for their appearances.moreless
