Musical Artist - Reubens, Paul

Paul Reubens is a comedian and actor best known for his character Pee-Wee Herman. Between 1992 and 1990, Reubens performed on HBO, CBS, and in two movies as Pee-Wee Herman, mostly proffering the character as children's entertainment. This all came to a screeching halt in 1991 when he was arrested for indecent exposure in an adult movie theater in Florida. After his arrest, Reubens withdrew from the limelight for several years, appearing in small roles and doing voice work, such as providing the voice for Lock in The Nightmare Before Christmas and a recurring character on the television show Murphy Brown.

In 1999, Reubens returned to larger roles on the big screen in the movie Blow, as well as Mystery Men in the role of The Spleen. he appeared in several movies and television shows since then, with an arrest in 2002 for allegedly possessing child pornography providing only a minor speed bump to his career (the charges were eventually dropped for lack of evidence). Reubens has since brought the Pee-Wee Herman character back in a Broadway show. Reubens has an official website named Pee-Wee Herman.
