Pee-wee Herman Creator Paul Reubens Dies at 70

Paul Reubens, the actor and comedian who created the beloved character Pee-wee Herman, died on Tuesday at the age of 70. His death was confirmed by his manager, Charles Schlatter.


Reubens was born in 1952 in Peekskill, New York. He began his career as a stand-up comedian in the early 1970s, and his Pee-wee Herman character first appeared in a series of short films for the sketch comedy show “The Paul Reubens Show” in 1981.

Pee-wee Herman quickly became a cult favorite, and his own television show, “Pee-wee’s Playhouse,” premiered on CBS in 1986. The show was a critical and commercial success, and it ran for four seasons.
