Family-friendly comedian Rex Havens will perform his multi-media show “Women and Children First” at Leach Theatre on May 3.
The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 3, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, located on the Missouri S&T campus at the corner of 10th and Main streets in Rolla. A former college professor who transitioned to standup comedy in the 1980’s, Havens says his show takes on gender roles from an impartial perspective “based on facts, not worn stereotypes.”
Havens has more than 20 years of experience in comedy and has toured in all 50 states and more than 20 countries. He has appeared on HBO, Showtime, NPR and Comedy Central and is the author of the book “Everything I Needed to Know, I Learned From My Wife!” Havens has also performed as an emcee for numerous companies, creating a presentation on how to build and maintain successful interpersonal relationships at work and on the manager-to-employee level. His corporate clients include IBM, Johnson & Johnson, State Farm and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Tickets are $25 for the public and $10 for Missouri S&T students with a valid ID. A group discount of 10 tickets for $10 each is available at the box office.
