Founder Of US Comedy Store Mitzi Shore Dies

Seth Meyers says his new son was born in the lobby of their apartment building

Mitzi Shore, owner of L.A.'s famed Comedy Store, passed away Wednesday at the age of 87, following a battle with Parkinson's disease.

TMZ wrote that Shore had spent some time in hospice care prior to her death, and was taken by her son Pauly to the Comedy Store on Monday, allowing her to "say goodbye" to the establishment where she helped launch the careers of many a famous comic. "Mitzi was an extraordinary woman and leader who identified, cultivated and celebrated comedy's best performers", tweeted The Comedy Store.

Whatever the future holds for the venue itself, Shore's legacy will clearly live on in the many artists she helped go on to move popular culture, and the many people she deeply touched. We will all miss her dearly.

The Comedy Store will continue on without Shore, though the exact details of who will control the legendary property remain somewhat unclear.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, she was also close with many comedians.

Robin Williams, Roseanne Barr, Jerry Seinfeld, Garry Shandling, Jay Leno, David Letterman, Chevy Chase, Arsenio Hall, and Marc Maron all performed there early in their careers.

I was only injured". "The sniper deserves a medal, and the photographer deserves a demotion", Avigdor Liberman said on Tuesday. He added that it was "understandable" that soldiers at the front sometimes had to let off steam.

Mitzi is credited for naming the club, which co-founded by her husband at the time, Sammy Shore, and fellow comedian Rudy DeLuca.

At the Comedy Club, Shore famously did not pay her comics, insisting the club provided training to hone their craft, along with exposure to industry insiders. She would eventually agree to pay nearly all comics that took the stage, but the club suffered in the wake of that bad P.R., as well as the opening of the Improv just down the street. She has four children, including actor and standup Pauly Shore. That comedy scene is loosely depicted in the Showtime series, "I'm Dying Up Here".

Comedians and others in the entertainment world honored Mitzi Shore on social media.
