Paul Reubens to headline 'Pee-wee's Big Adventure' tour

Paul Reubens, best known as the creator and star of Pee-wee’s Big Adventure (1985), is hitting the road next year to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the beloved movie.

Screenings of the critically acclaimed comedy, directed by Tim Burton, will play across 20 U.S. cities before an out-of-character Reubens shares previously untold stories about the production of the film.

The tour was announced via the official Pee-wee Herman Instagram account on Monday morning.

Since Reubens’ initial debut on The Groundlings — an L.A.-based improv group that helped launch his career — in 1977, the 67-year-old actor has played the Pee-wee Herman character for more than four decades in a variety of different series and films.

On Feb. 14, 2020, Reubens’ highly anticipated tour kicks off in Portland Ore. It will conclude in Washington, D.C., on March 29.
