Before They Were Stars: Paul Reubens Sings on “The Gong Show”

Before he was Pee-Wee Herman, Paul Reubens got his first national television exposure by performing on numerous episodes of The Gong Show┬áduring the late 1970s. In this particular occasion, he appeared as part of a goofy singing duo called “Suave & Debonair”. Incidentally, the guy singing alongside Reubens is his longtime collaborator, John Paragon, who would go on to play Jambi the Genie on Pee-Wee’s Playhouse and had memorable roles in such films as Eating Raoul and UHF.
