Changing the face of American stand-up comedy, Rex is one of the hardest working comedians today. A household name in Filipino American homes, he released his 1st comedy CD entitled “Badly Browned” in 1998 which was followed by “Husky Boy” and “Bastos.”
His DVDs are “Hella Pinoy” and “Badass Madapaka,” which was recorded in San Francisco at the historic Warfield Theater. A Bay Area native, Rex’s routines have evolved through the use of characters, many of whom are struggling underdogs.
Navarrete gathers all of his material from what he calls “real Rex moments,” reality and shared life experiences. “I think everything has humor; you will always find humor. I don’t always make stuff up. Even though most of my material is geared for a Filipino audience, if you’re smart enough you’ll understand the universality of it. Look at the comedy traditions of Jewish and African American comics, which are now the mainstream through Seinfeld, Bruce, Allen, Rock, Pryor and Murphy. Our struggles become our comedy.
Also performing will be Reggie Steele and Edwin Li.
