LOS ANGELES, CA – A lawsuit was filed this week by a father and daughter against Pauly Shore, alleging that the actor encouraged security members at The Comedy Store to assault the father in 2022. The suit, filed in Los Angeles County’s West District, claims that security members at The Comedy Store “violently grabbed and attacked” plaintiff Sean Kehoe on Nov. 30, 2022, while his daughter, Kirra Lyn Potts, was present. The allegations also state that Kehoe sustained “severe injuries” which resulted in Potts facing “mental and emotional distress” and “extreme mental anguish.”
Kehoe and Potts both allege that Shore “agreed with and encouraged” the attack, and the suit claims that he and The Comedy Store are both responsible for the security officials’ actions as a result of negligence in his “selection of hiring.” As a result, Kehoe and Potts are seeking monetary compensation for previous and future medical bills, along with a to-be-determined sum for loss of earnings.
The lawsuit sheds light on a disturbing incident that occurred at The Comedy Store, a well-known establishment in the Los Angeles comedy scene. The lawsuit also raises questions about the responsibility of celebrities and businesses in ensuring the safety and well-being of their patrons. If proven true, the allegations in the lawsuit could have significant ramifications for both Pauly Shore and The Comedy Store.
The lawsuit comes at a time of increased scrutiny on the behavior and actions of celebrities and public figures. With the #MeToo movement and other similar movements, there has been a growing demand for accountability and transparency in the entertainment industry. The outcome of this lawsuit could set a precedent for how celebrities are held accountable for their actions and the actions of those associated with them.
No response from Pauly Shore or The Comedy Store has been made public at this time. It remains to be seen how this lawsuit will unfold and what impact it may have on the entertainment industry as a whole.
