Pee-Wee Returns

Comedic actor Paul Reubens has resurrected his wacky, childlike alter ego and will be unleashing him full force in 2010!

Pee-Wee Herman, a character Reubens first developed as a routine with The Groundlings, is back! Herman was catapulted to national fame in the 1980s with performances across the U.S. as well as multiple appearances on late night shows. The character's vast success was taken even further by films such as Pee-Wee's Big Adventure and Big Top Pee-Wee as well as the smash hit series "Pee-Wee's Playhouse".

The Pee-Wee Herman Show will officially begin its four week run at Los Angeles' Nokia Theater on January 12th, 2010.

Director Alex Timbers states that this is not just a comedy show, but a "90 minute theatrical extravaganza." An extravaganza, no less! Timbers went on to state that the show is based on the five-season run of "Pee-Wee's Playhouse" and will feature "eleven actors, 20 puppets, 7 puppeteers, and Broadway scale production values throughout."

There has already been talk surrounding this project in regards to a tour of the show and a new Pee-Wee's Playhouse film is already in pre-production.
