Paul Reubens, he of public masturbatory fame, is reviving the character that made him world famous: Pee-wee Herman. Herman started out as a crude stand-up act and then became a popular children’s TV show and a feature film directed by Tim Burton. Beginning in November, Pee-wee will be performing live at the Fonda Theater in Hollywood. And yes, Chairry, Pterri the pterodactyl and Miss Yvonne will be present. Maybe a trip to LA is in order?
If, like me, you won’t be in LA any time soon, take a look at this video of Pee-wee’s Christmas special from the 80s. Yes, Grace Jones and Pee-wee together at Christmas. He, and genius television like this clip, are sorely missed. Welcome back Pee-wee!
