Fans of Pee-wee’s Playhouse will recognize the distinctive work of Wayne White, one of the creative minds (and voices) behind the show’s delightful puppets and madcap charm. The designer, painter, puppeteer, sculptor, and musician gets his well-deserved close-up in a new documentary, Beauty is Embarassing, now in limited release. The film not only examines White’s deliciously wacky creative process but also retraces his steps from childhood in Chattanooga, Tennessee to parenthood in Los Angeles. “It has been the time of my life,” says director Neil Berkeley of the three years he spent making Beauty is Embarassing. “I hope audiences get that sense of joy that Wayne has about what he does everyday. That’s the lesson I learned from him…spend everyday doing work that makes you happy.”
