Coming soon: Pee-Wee Herman on HBO

Pin it

In other theater news, The Pee-wee Herman Show is outgrowing its humble Broadway roots and coming to an television near you: a special performance will be filmed expressly for HBO, who will air the production under the sneaky new title The Pee-Wee Herman Show on Broadway.

And yes, Paul Reubens is in it. Just ask HBO:

“Before his hit series and movies, HBO introduced Paul Reubens’ Pee-wee Herman to a national audience in the ‘Young Comedians’ series, followed by the groundbreaking 1981 special. It’s thrilling to have Paul back on the network, and it will be a blast to return to Pee-wee’s Playhouse.”

Braggarts! But hey, who can blame them — Pee-wee's Playhouse was insane, in an awesome way.
