About (Late) Last Night: On 'Conan,' Pee-wee Herman and the story of Lent [video]

Pee-wee Herman dropped by "Conan" last night on his water skis in a total blast from the past.

He apparently left the playhouse to visit Conan on Ash Wednesday to tell the story of Lent -- a time of sacrifice, turning away from temptation and, um, dreidel. And it all culminates in Easter, with a man-chick emerging from a giant egg. 

This is the latest in a comeback tour for the star -- he's on Broadway, he'll be on HBO and he had a hilarious digital short with Andy Samberg on "Saturday Night Live" just a few months ago. (Also, the man portraying Pee-wee, Paul Reubens, did a wonderfully hilarious turn in the first season of "30 Rock," as Prince Gerhardt, the victim of centuries of royal inbreeding.)

Here's the digital short, which also features Anderson Cooper.
