Pee Wee Does Details

Paul Reubens, aka Pee Wee Herman, the 57-year-old actor, best known for embodying the oddball man-child with the puppet friends (and also for two tawdry scrapes with the law), is about to don the skinny suit again to perform as Pee-wee for the first time in 19 years. Starting in early January in Los Angeles, Reubens will star in an elaborate live show in which Pee-wee yearns to fly, gets his wish, and then gives it away.

The November issue of DETAILS Magazine hits stands next week and we discover how Paul Reubens will prove to Hollywood that Pee-wee can still pack a house.

"It's a drag to have tabloid baggage. It's weird to have your career be a footnote to that, especially when you love what you do." But he's over it, he says. "I'm not giving people that power anymore."

I'm excited for Pee-wee's return to the big top. Who's with me?
