The Pee-wee Herman Show was a stage show in 1980 developed by Paul Reubens, marking the first significant appearance of his comedic fictional character Pee-wee Herman, five years before Pee-wee's Big Adventure and six years before Pee-wee's Playhouse.

The show initially debuted as a midnight show at the Groundlings theater on February 1981. It was later moved to Los Angeles’ Roxy Theatre where HBO’s cable network taped one of the shows and aired it as a special. This nightclub show had more adult humor than the later children’s TV series.
