    PAUL REUBENS created the iconic character, Pee-wee Herman, while a member of the famed Los Angeles improv group The Groundlings. The Pee-wee Herman Show premiered at The Groundlings Theatre in 1981. It moved to the Roxy on Sunset Strip, and HBO’s production of the show introduced Pee-wee Herman to a national audience. Pee-wee was brought to the big screen in the hit 1985 comedy Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, which Paul Reubens co-wrote and marked Tim Burton’s directorial debut. Reubens went on to create, co-write and co-direct Pee-wee’s Playhouse on CBS where the series earned 22 Emmy® Awards during its five-year run. Reubens has personally been nominated for 14 Emmy® Awards, winning twice.

    Paul Reubens has also starred in many diverse, non-Pee-wee film and television roles. He recently appeared as Oswald Cobblepot, The Penguin’s father on Gotham. Other TV credits include: The Blacklist, Portlandia, 30 Rock, Pushing Daisies, Reno 911 and Everybody Loves Raymond. His film credits include Mystery Men, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Blow, Life During Wartime and Steven Soderbergh’s Mosaic.Reubens revived The Pee-wee Herman Show at Club Nokia in Los Angeles and then at the Steven Sondheim Theater on Broadway.

    In 2010, three decades after his first HBO special, the network produced a dazzling new version of the Broadway show. Next, Judd Apatow teamed with Paul and Netflix to produce a new Pee-wee movie, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday. Reubens has also lent his vocal talents to many projects including Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, Star Wars Rebels, Robot Chicken, Family Guy, TRON: Uprising, Smurfs, Minecraft: Story Mode and Call of Duty: Zombies in Spaceland.
