Celebrate the life of Paul Reubens and the magic of Pee-wee Herman with our beloved Pee-wee’s Big Adventure.
For nearly forty years, we’ve joined Pee-wee on his cross-country quest for his stolen bike. We’ve danced to “Tequila,” hitched a ride with Large Marge, and discovered that — *gasp* — the Alamo has no basement. It’s a trip that some of us have taken countless times, but it never fails to delight with its perfect mix of imagination and glee, tempered with just the right amount of off-kilter, alt-comedy edge.
When you’re spending time with Pee-wee, be it at the playhouse or on the open road, everything seems possible. That’s Pee-wee’s gift to the world and Reubens’ timeless legacy to us. The greatest way we can think to honor both is to come together and fill Vidiots with laughter.
