On what has already been an eventful week for Pee Wee Herman, longtime "Playhouse" fans packed the Troc for the Movie Monday screening of his 1985 classic, Pee Wee's Big Adventure, the story of a 'rebel' searching for his lost bike, and having peculiar dreams.
Tim Burton's film aside, there has been a lot of buzz about Pee Wee, lately. First, his recent SNL appearance gave him a chance to whack Anderson Cooper with a chair; then his new HBO special, a taping of the hit play, 'The Pee-Wee Herman Show on Broadway,' airs March 19. As if that weren't enough, to promote the HBO show, he just announced to his 730K twitter followers, he's heading down to SXSW as part of a promotional tour. And there have even been some other amusing (if unlikely) rumors.
In other words, it's all good for Pee Wee at the moment, even if he can't win everyone over just yet. But no matter what else he does going forward, he'll have a hard time topping the "Tequila" dance.
