“Done with style, wit, and taste!”

-Samsonite, Inc.

“It was so great to laugh so hard after a stressful semester.”

-Student at Reformed Bible College, Grand Rapids, MI


Rex Havens’ gender-fication comedy is men and women like it’s never been done before, from the eyes of an impartial observer without a horse in the race. What would an alien examining Earth think of men and women? Who’s better, worse, smarter, nobler, kinder? Does either side really win or lose, and does it even matter? Sure, we’re on a collision course, but who says colliding can’t be fun? Humor and heart share a lifeboat in this remarkable theater experience brimming over with a perfect balance of laughter and love. And, hey, it’s a multi-media show with audio, video and over 500 stills, so there’s more to see than the rambling oddball lumbering around the stage.


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. For over 20 years, Rex Havens has entertained and educated audiences with his insightful observations about the hilarious miscommunications that populate our personal lives.

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.
