American comedian better known as Pee-Wee Herman, playing a winsome, goofy young man in a tight suit and lipstick, googly eyes and a smirk, popular with kids and those who appreciate broad physical comedy. He made such films as "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure" and "Big Top Pee-Wee," and had an Emmy award-winning Saturday morning kid's show, "Pee-Wee's Playhouse."
On 7/26/1991, it appeared that Reubens had sunk his own career when he was arrested for exposure and public masturbation in a Sarasota, Florida porno theater. Overnight he became a punch-line in sniggering jokes. It was not his first brush with such charges. In 1983 he had been picked up for loitering near another porno theater, charges that were later dropped. This time, Reubens was sentenced to 75 hours community service and a $50 fine, but the career damage seemed inestimable.
However, Reubens is not the first in Hollywood star to survive a little scandal. In the doldrums of summer TV, 2001, he emerged as a delightfully funny host of a game-show called "You Don't Know Jack" that lasted a few showings. He has also received rave reviews for his role as a gay, coke-dealing hairdresser in the drug drama, "Blow."
He pleaded not guilty on 1/19/2002 to a not very funny misdemeanor charge of possessing child porno, a charge that stems from a search of his Los Angeles home in Nov.2001. On March 19, 2004, he was sentenced to three years probation after pleading guilty to the misdemeanor obscenity charge .
