Pee Wee Herman Show Report

We had a wonderful evening at the Pee Wee Herman Show last week. Lots of guys, couples and Judith and me...It wasn't full but it WAS a Tuesday. We went to Club Nokia but the bigger crowd (and a slightly different crowd) was attending the Kings hockey game at Staples center. The seats of the intimate "club" were sold out almost to the edges of the balcony but the crowd was little more subdued than I thought they would be (it IS L.A. after all). Only one guy dressed up like Pee Wee and there were a few Pee Wee dolls but the audience did participate by screaming when the word of the day (fun) was uttered. Great set, fun cartoon and 50's era newsclips, and an hour and a half of pure Pee Wee. Pee Wee is as trim as ever in his tight, little suit and Miss Yvonne was a vision in tulle and velour (two outfits). A few double entendres and gay marriage references, but Pee Wee was really on his best behavior and the crowd responded with a standing ovation. Since I made Pee Wee buttons for the occasion I did not buy a t-shirt but they did have some cool merchandise and I'm sure you could find it online. Two snaps for the show...
