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 Haven has always believed that laughter is the best defense against a confusing and challenging world.

“Want to thank you for your recommendation for this year’s entertainer. You were right on the money! REX HAVENS WAS TERRIFIC! Some comments from our CEO were: ‘Nice to have wholesome entertainment.’ ’Really enjoyable and entertaining act!’ and ‘Good choice for this year’s banquet!’ He was a real professional, and easy to work with.”

And the personalized anecdotes we gave you (some of our people’s humorous stories) were impressively incorporated into your comedy routine. Thanks for helping to make our conference a tremendous success!!”
