'Late Night': Jimmy Fallon and Pee-wee Herman sittin' on a bike

Posted on

Jimmy Fallon found his inner Pee-wee Herman last night, taking a turn through the Late Night studio on a double-seated bike with the bow-tied man himself. (See video embedded below.) Two things to note: 1) Jimmy Fallon looks like a tan Pee-wee Herman, and 2) Pee-wee Herman (a.k.a. Paul Reubens) sleeps in a cryogenic chamber and drinks potions for lunch. Seriously, the man looks EXACTLY THE SAME. He appeared in character to promote The Pee-wee Herman Show — which hits Broadway at the end of the month — and his man-child schtick seems to have aged just as nominally as his face. He’s still got the secret word and potentially grating catchphrases! And yet … I’m excited. There really is no place like the Playhouse, amiright PopWatchers? Are we all ready for Pee-wee’s next great adventure?
