Paul Reubens

Paul Reubens is an American actor, film producer, game show host, comedian, best known for his character Pee-wee Herman. Reubens joined the Los Angeles troupe The Groundlings in the 1970s, started his career as an improvisational comedian and stage actor. In 1982, Reubens began appearing in a show about a character; the show was called The Pee-wee Herman Show, ran for five sold-out months. Pee-wee became an instant cult figure and, for the next decade, Reubens was committed to his character, doing all of his public appearances and interviews as Pee-wee, his feature film, Pee-wee's Big Adventure, directed by the then-unknown Tim Burton, was a financial and critical success, soon developed into a cult film. Its sequel, Big Top Pee-wee, was less successful. Between 1986 and 1990, Reubens starred as Pee-wee in the CBS Saturday-morning children's program Pee-wee's Playhouse. Thereafter, Reubens decided to take a sabbatical from Pee-wee. In July 1991, Reubens was arrested for indecent exposure in an adult theater in Florida.

The arrest set off a chain reaction of national media attention that changed the general public's view of Reubens and Pee-wee. The arrest postponed Reubens' involvement in major projects until 1999, when he appeared in several big-budget projects including Mystery Men and Blow, Reubens started giving interviews as himself rather than as Pee-wee. Since 2006, Reubens has been making cameos and guest appearances in numerous projects, such as Reno 911!, 30 Rock, Pushing Daisies, The Blacklist. Since the 1990s, he has worked on two possible Pee-wee films: one dark and adult, dubbed The Pee-wee Herman Story, the other a family-friendly epic adventure called Pee-wee's Playhouse: The Movie. In 2010, Reubens starred on Broadway in The Pee-wee Herman Show. In 2016, Reubens helped write and starred in the Netflix original film Pee-wee's Big Holiday, reprising his role as Pee-wee Herman. Reubens was born Paul Rubenfeld in Peekskill, New York, grew up in Sarasota, where his parents and Milton Rubenfeld, owned a lamp store.

His mother was a teacher. His father was an automobile salesperson who had flown for Britain's Royal Air Force and for the U. S. Army Air Forces in World War II, became one of the founding pilots of the Israeli Air Force during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. Reubens' two younger siblings are Luke, a dog trainer, Abby, an attorney and a board member of the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee. Reubens spent a significant amount of his childhood in New York; as a child, Reubens frequented the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, whose winter headquarters was in Sarasota. The circus' atmosphere sparked Reubens' interest in entertainment and influenced his work. Reubens loved to watch reruns of I Love Lucy, which made him want to make people laugh. At age 5, Reubens asked his father to build him a stage, where he and his siblings would put on plays. Reubens attended Sarasota High School, where he was named president of the National Thespian Society, he was accepted into Northwestern University's summer program for gifted high-school students, joined the local Asolo Theater and Players of Sarasota Theater, appeared in several plays.

After graduation, he began auditioning for acting schools. He was turned down by several schools, including Juilliard, twice by Carnegie-Mellon, before being accepted at the California Institute of the Arts and moving to California, where he worked in restaurant kitchens and as a Fuller Brush salesman. In the 1970s, Reubens performed at local comedy clubs and made four guest appearances on The Gong Show as part of a boy–girl act he had developed with Charlotte McGinnis, called The Hilarious Betty and Eddie, he soon joined the Los Angeles–based improvisational comedy team The Groundlings and remained a member for six years, working with Bob McClurg, John Paragon, Susan Barnes, Phil Hartman. Hartman and Reubens became friends, wrote and worked on material together. In 1980, Reubens had a small part as a waiter in The Blues Brothers; the character of "Pee-wee Herman" originated during a 1978 improvisation exercise with The Groundlings, where Reubens came up with the idea of a man who wanted to be a comic but was so inept at telling jokes that it was obvious to the audience that he would never make it.

Fellow Groundling Phil Hartman would afterwards help Reubens develop the character while another Groundling, John Paragon, would help write the show. Despite having been compared to other famous characters, such as Hergé's Tintin and Collodi's Pinocchio, Reubens says that there is no specific source for "Pee-wee" but rather a collection of ideas. Pee-wee's voice originated in 1970 when Reubens appeared in a production of Life with Father, where he was cast as one of the most obnoxious characters in the play, for which Reubens adopted a cartoon-like way of speaking that would become Pee-wee's. Pee-wee's name resulted from a one-inch Pee Wee brand harmonica Reubens had as a child, Herman was the surname of an energetic boy Reubens knew from his youth; the first small gray suit Pee-wee wore had been handmade for director and founder of the Groundlings Gary Austin, who passed it on to Reubens, while "someone" handed him the "little kid bow tie" before a show. Reubens auditioned for Saturday Night Live for the 1980–1981 season, but Gilbert Gottfried, a close friend of the show's producer and had the same acting style as Reubens, got the job.
