About Rex’s Shows and Keynotes
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 miscommunications 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.
