Pee-wee Herman gets Conan and the gang to re-enact the story of Ash Wednesday and Lent

Pee-wee Herman is not just all about balloon tricks, although he did show Conan O'Brien last night what he can do with a balloon.

He also got Conan, Andy, La Bamba and more to join in his re-telling of the story of Ash Wednesday and Lent, but in his own words. Oh, and he arrived onstage via water skis. And introduced his new device for avoiding phone calls. You can see Pee-Wee Herman on Broadway, on HBO, on Saturday March 19, or if you're at SXSW, you can see and listen to him in conversation on Sunday, March 13. I even moved my own SXSW panel later that day just so we all could see him!

Roll the clip!
