Paul Reubens

Paul Reubens

Paul Reubens began his comedy career at the Groundlings Theater in Los Angeles, but it wasn’t long before he was a household name. Well, perhaps not HIS name, but definitely the name of his beloved creation: Pee-Wee Herman. Pee-Wee had his own Broadway show, television series, and movies such as Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure and Big Top Pee-Wee. Paul himself has appeared on shows such as Reno 911 and 30 Rock.
