We don’t know about you, but it came as no surprise to us that Pauly Shore is too puerile for parenthood.
Interviewed on Milling About, the funnyman—who has (dig)graced such flicks as Bio-Dome and Jury Duty— plugs his new mockumentary, Adopted, which finds him venturing to Africa to “test-drive” would-be sons and daughters.
“For hundreds of years, Africa has existed in a state of despair. Famine, civil wars and rampant disease have left the continent without hope, but for the efforts of Western do-gooders,” Pauly writes about the project on IMDb.
“At first, they arrived with food, bibles and the magic of penicillin; more recently they have hosted rock concerts and sent plane loads of grain. And in the last decade of the 20th century they arrived and took babies home with them. First there was Angelina, then Madonna, and now…Pauly Shore!”
“I think what they’re doing is a great thing,” he tells host Robin Milling of the likes of Angelina Jolie and Madonna. “Taking a kid out of a township or a village and bringing him to America for a better life is a great thing.
“A parent is a parent. As long as they provide, then that’s cool. [But] I’d have to really mature before I considered adopting.
“I’m a comic and I grew up at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles,” Pauly, now 42, continues.
“I don’t have the best parenting skills.”
