So why shouldn't faux fur win Pee-wee… Transgender Pee-wee? Creepy. You look maaaarrvalosss darhling. But so would I in that coat! :) Love it! He should at least get an award for worst photoshop job of the year. Pee-Wee’s “faux-fur/faux-ad” is both awesome and ridiculous. Just like Melissa Leo. maybe she could reply with a remake of his mugshot? Paul is the greatest. this is so funny. A super smart, talented, funny and nice man. I hope he gets a handful of emmys. The show was great. Like nothing you’ve seen. That is F’INGenius!!!! This is so funny! And it might do the trick. I grew up watching Pee Wee and this HBO special was unwatchable. So glad I was able to hit fast forward and delete. There’s some things you couldn’t understand, there’s some things you wouldn’t understand, there’s some things you shouldn’t understand…. I saw two amazing shows out here in L.A. – the actual stage production of “Playhouse” that was later filmed on Broadway and then the NINETY MINUTES Reubens spent with the audience afterwards answering questions, joking with little kids who’d been brought to see it, talking about his career and what went into the creation of “Playhouse,” etc. Nope, not the kind of thing that wins Emmys, but it was one of the coolest evenings of entertainment I’ve ever had. That’s so funny I forgot to laugh. I never found him funny at all. Just creepy. Figures he’d wear fur. Ah cain’t quit you, PeeWee!! Comments are closed.
