Beauty is Embarassing


on Nov 13, 2012

Part biography, part live performance, Beauty is Embarrassing tells the irreverent and inspiring story of one-of-a-kind visual artist and raconteur, Wayne White. The film traces White’s career from an underground cartoonist in New York’s East Village to his big break as a designer, puppeteer and voice-over actor on Pee-wee’s Playhouse (for which he won three Emmys), as well as his work animating music videos for The Smashing Pumpkins (“Tonight, Tonight”) and Peter Gabriel (“Big Time”).
