For over 20 years, Rex Havens has entertained and educated audiences around the world (50 states, 15 countries and counting) with his insightful observations about the hilarious miscommunication that populate our personal lives. He offers two entertainment-based shows, “Everything I Needed to Know, I Learned From My Wife” and “Bidding You a Fond ‘I Do’“, a theater-style show. After decades of working with companies of every size in literally every industry, Rex has also created the defining presentation on how to build and maintain successful interpersonal relationships at work as well, both manager-to-employee and colleague-to-colleague: One Big Happy Family!
Rex has been delighting comedy audiences for 20 years, in world-famous comedy clubs like The Improv, Catch-A-Rising Star, Funny Bones and Zanies, on television for Showtime, Comedy Central and Comic Relief, on radio with Bob & Tom and NPR, cruise ships worldwide, and corporate clients including GM, American Express, Texaco, 3M, Coca-Cola, IBM, Toshiba, Lowe’s, Johnson & Johnson, Ameritech, Proctor & Gamble, State Farm, Quaker Oats, Verizon and the IRS (“Working for the IRS is the only sure way to get money from them.”), and numerous non-profit and charitable organizations, such as St. Jude’s and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
A former college professor who made the unusual transition to the standup comedy stage in the ’80’s, Rex has always believed that laughter is the best defense against a confusing and challenging world. Rex’s take on marriage and family has propelled him to performances in all 50 states and around the world, including London, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, Bermuda, Montreal, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Aruba, Rome and Cannes.
“The Battle of the Sexes”
Though it’s not a fair fight, and probably ought to be stopped, it thrives and rages for the most primal of reasons — it’s endlessly mysterious, fascinating and fun!
Rex Havens braves this haunting, daunting battlefield armed with the only weapon essential to survival — laughter! Based on the only two truths Rex has learned about men and women — “I’m a man . . . and I’m Sorry!”
— Rex’s comedy routine is a fresh approach to an ageless subject, tongue planted firmly and cleverly in cheek, and dedicated to the notion that happiness lies not in victory, but in the glory and undeniable humor of the struggle.
