Preschutti writes that he is a known entity in the club for years.

He says he has “worked in the comedy and entertainment business since 1995, and has been a comedy actor and teacher over the years,” and claims his association with the Comedy Store dates back to 1999.

Preschutti also indicated that he had had past dealings with Shore and his mother Mitzi.

The iconic comedy club was founded in 1972 by Shore’s father, Sammy Shore, who at the time was married to his mother Mitzi.

Two years later, Sammy and Mitzi divorced and she took over the settlement’s Comedy Store.

The club became the playground for several up-and-coming comedians who would go on to become major figures, including Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldberg, David Letterman, Jay Leno, Roseanne Barr, and Andrew Dice Clay, among many others, and continues to be a popular venue. for both established comedians and newcomers.

Following Mitzi’s death in 2018, Pauly assumed ownership of the club as trustee of the Mitzi S. Shore Trust.

It is unclear whether Preschutti’s connection to Shore and his late mother had any connection to the alleged beating.

According to him, he left the club on December 15 to return home, but two bouncers allegedly “ran over, grabbed the plaintiff and detained him.”

A waiter then told him he hadn’t paid his bill, and Preschutti says he proceeded to pay the amount.
