There is a broad and devoted fanbase for Pee-Wee Herman who must have been delighted to hear the character would return to his stage roots for The Pee-Wee Herman Show. But not every fan lives in New York and Los Angeles, the only two cities where the show played. Luckily, The Pee-Wee Herman Show on Broadway will reach the masses by way of an HBO special that premieres March 19. Watch the teaser trailer, in which Paul Reubens rummages through a box of bow ties, after the break.
The stage show rekindled the Pee-Wee franchise. Judd Apatow is producing a new Pee-Wee movie, said to be “a linear road movie.” Click here for more details.
In the first Red Nose Day special on American shores (benefitting the charity Comic Relief), celebrities such as Julia Roberts, Hugh Grant, Anna Kendrick, and even Kermit the Frog all showed up to participate in the live telecast.
