In sad news, it has been announced that actor Paul Reubens – famed for playing the character Pee-Wee Herman – has died aged 70.

Full story below…

The star passed away after a private six-year battle with cancer.

A statement from Reubens’ Estate read:

“Last night we said farewell to Paul Reubens, an iconic American actor, comedian, writer and producer whose beloved character Pee-wee Herman delighted generations of children and adults with his positivity, whimsy and belief in the importance of kindness. Paul bravely and privately fought cancer for years with his trademark tenacity and wit. A gifted and prolific talent, he will forever live in the comedy pantheon and in our hearts as a treasured friend and man of remarkable character and generosity of spirit.”

Reubens rose to prominence in the 1980s with ‘Pee-Wee’s Playhouse’ TV show – which became a mammoth hit across all ages – despite being aimed at youngsters.

The popularity carried over onto the big screen with ‘Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure’ which was also a smash and further etched both Reubens and the character into the history books of Pop culture.

A note penned by the comic himself before his passing was attached to the announcement read:

“Please accept my apology for not going public with what I’ve been facing the last six years. I have always felt a huge amount of love and respect from my friends, fans, and supporters. I have loved you all so much and enjoyed making art for you.”

May he Rest in Peace.
