I did NOT know Paul Reubens went to CalArts! 🎬🚌

I always sort of felt like Pee-wee Herman was performance art a little bit, and what I personally liked about it was that I was the only per­son who knew that. I was in art school at CalArts [California Institute of the Arts] just prior to joining The Groundlings and developing Pee-wee Herman. I almost felt like Pee-wee Herman was conceptual art because I went to great lengths to make people think that he was a real person.
