Paul Reubens/Pee-Wee Herman Net Worth: Paul Reubens/Pee-Wee Herman is an American comedian, actor and television personality who has a net worth of $5 million dollars. Born August 27, 1952 in Peerskill, New York, he is best known for his character/alter ego Pee-Wee Herman. His interest in entertainment stemmed from The Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, which set up the 'big top' close to his childhood home. Reubens studied drama at the California Institute of the Arts and performed with the improv group The Groundlings during the '70s. It was there that he developed the Pee-Wee character, an innocent man-boy who enjoyed playing tricks on his friends. His signature gray suit, small red bow tie, slicked back hair and silly dance moves completed the caricature. In 1981, HBO aired one of Reubens' live shows, and the Pee-Wee phenomenon got wings. In 1985, he built on the popularity of his Pee-Wee character by releasing his first feature film, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, which was a huge box office hit. Reubens soon signed with CBS to develop the Saturday morning children's program Pee-Wee's Playhouse (1986-1990). His career had a terrible setback in 1991 when he was arrested in Florida and charged with indecent exposure. The scandal soiled his squeaky-clean image and CBS dropped reruns of Pee-Wee's Playhouse from its lineup. He also tried to resuscitate his acting career by appearing in such films as 1992's Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 1996's Matilda, 1999's Mystery Men and 2001's Blow. He subsequently landed a recurring role on the popular sitcom Murphy Brown. In recent years, he brought his popular character to Broadway in 2010, starring in The Pee-Wee Herman Show. He made his debut as the voice of Jokey in the popular family comedy The Smurfs the following year and worked on its 2013 sequel as well.
