Pee Wee at MegaCon!

Get Set for a Big Adventure!

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.
