Catch Rex Navarrete live this November
MANILA, Philippines – Time for some belly laughs as Filipino-American comedian Rex Navarrete comes back to Manila to perform at the Teatrino in Greenhills, San Juan on Friday, November 21.
The first performance has sold out, so Creative Concepts Intl has scheduled a second show on Tuesday, November 25.
Rex, who started his career in 1998, has been performing in various comedy clubs in the United States such as The Laugh Factory, The Improv, Comedy Club, Punch Line Comedy among others. He also performed in entertainment venues such as Wiltern in Los Angeles and The Warfield in San Francisco as well as schools and universities.
He also released several comedy albums such as Badly Browned (1998), Husky Boy (1999), Bastos (2001), and Live at Cobb’s (2010). DVD's such as Hella Pinoy (2003), Badass Madapaka (2005), and Komik Organik (2009) followed.
Here are some of Rex's videos:
In a press release, Rex said that playing in small venues reminds him of how he started in the business.
“Playing intimate venues allow me and the audience to really listen to one another. I pick up all the little reactions, be they giggles or nothing at all,” he said.
“You're not sure if you're going to earn every laugh.” He continued. “You can always rely on a big venue to drown out the folks who just aren't with you. When the laughs do come, it's nice to know you earned that particular one.”
In the past 25 years, Rex said he is grateful to do what he loves. (READ: Rex Navarrete: The art of telling a joke)
“I'm very proud of the fact that I'm now in my 25th year of comedy and that I've been able to make a humble living off of this thing I've created for myself. I think my fans see my pride in my work and sweat after all these years. It is truly a gift that I've been chosen to do this.” – Rappler.com
