Rex Navarrete remains one of the hardest working, relatively unknown American comedians today, though he’s performed alongside notable national headliners such as George Lopez, DL Hughley, Paul Mooney, among others. He does plan to release a number of other comedy albums on CD and DVD under his label for fans to enjoy. The future seems to only give him the chance to connect with a larger audience that is now finally getting the opportunity to experience the changing face of American stand-up comedy.

Rex Navarrete has performed his brand of comedy all across the nation touring numerous colleges, universities and community events. He has become a household name in Filipino American homes. In 1998, he released his first comedy CD entitled, “Badly Browned”, which was followed by another CD in the summer of 1999, “Husky Boy”. Both have become bestsellers on the Classified Records label and have brought high praise by listeners across the country.
In the summer of 2001, he released his third CD album this time under his own label Kakarabaw Productions entitled, “Bastos”.
As a major follow-up to the three CDs and touring like crazy in Asia and North America, he produced, directed and released “Hella Pinoy”, his first ever live standup DVD concert. Shot in San Francisco, it has all the hidden goodies including a feature-length performance, a behind the scenes documentary, his early days of standup and much more. It’s become a must have DVD in anyone’s comedy collection.
In 2005, came the release of his follow-up DVD entitled, “Badass Madapaka” filmed live at the historic Wiltern LG Theater in Los Angeles. This DVD also contains footage from his tours in Manila, Honolulu and San Francisco. We get a glimpse into his life on the road and the unique audiences Rex gets in front of. In 2006, “Rex In The City” debuted on MTV Philippines airwaves. This is the first ever Stand-up/Sit-com to broadcast in Asia. With all of this happening, he is also completed production for a first-ever Filipino American animated series, “The Nut Shack”, which aired on Myx and The Filipino Channel.
2009 brought on his third live DVD, “Komik Organik”, taped live at the Improv in San Jose, CA. This project celebrates his twenty years in the business of being the foremost authority of the Filipino species, with topics ranging from the history of Filipino food to world welterweight champion boxer Manny Pacquiao.
Rex’s fourth live comedy album was recorded at Cobb’s Comedy Club in the famous North Beach district of San Francisco, CA. “Live at Cobb’s” is a 2010 digital release available on iTunes worldwide, alongside the reissue of his original three CDs in digital download format. Now fans can own all four albums with a click of the mouse or the swipe of a finger.
He currently travels all over North America, touring cities such as Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Hawaii doing his one-man show. In 2004, he brought his act to the peoples of Germany, Austria and Switzerland sharing the bill with renowned Philippine vocalist, Regine Velasquez. He has also had the distinction of becoming the most celebrated stand-up comic to perform to multiple sold-out shows in Manila, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia since 2002. He regularly returns to Manila which has become fertile ground for his style of stand-up, inspiring the growth of an emerging local stand-up comedy scene. His next plan of attack is to perform in the United Kingdom, where fans eagerly await his arrival.
