Lionel and Pee-Wee playing house?

Posted By on Tue, Jan 5, 2010 at 8:48 PM

With Pee-Wee Herman’s long-awaited comeback less than one week away — the former Pee-Wee's Playhouse host will begin a four-week run at Los Angeles' Club Nokia — all eyes are now on Colorado Springs Mayor Lionel Rivera.

There has long been speculation that, due to the uncanny resemblance between Rivera and Herman, they may in fact be the same person. Many point out that the budding of Rivera's political career suspiciously coincided with the scandal-scarred demise of Herman’s television career.

Will our mayor — who has never actually been seen in the same room with Herman — be on "vacation” or “otherwise occupied” during the comedian's L.A. run? This latest controversy comes in the wake of accusations that Colorado Springs City Councilman Bernie Herpin is, in fact, Satan. (You can find Herpin's denial of the allegation here.)

We'll keep you updated as these situations develop.
