Pauly Shore

Steele looking for comedy tips?

Maryland's former LG was spotted today by POLITCO having lunch at Ben's Chili Bowl in Washington, D.C. with funny man Pauly Shore.

Shore has some upcoming gigs at the 9:30 Club, but the D.C.-centered website failed to mention that Michael Steele is also on tour. He's is set to compete in Baltimore later this month for the title Charm City's "Funniest Celebrity."  Last year the award went to Baltimore Police Commissioner Fred Bealefeld.
