Reportedly, the following clip, which captures funnyman Pauly Shore under the Friday night comedy lights of Odessa, TX, getting heckled and punched during a set, was staged. At least the punch, that is. TMZ.com reports Shore arranged for the big fella with the cowboy hat (who, it turns out, is a cop) to fake the punch. The heckling, while potentially fake as well, probably didn't have to be staged even if it was. Pauly, say it ain't Shore.
