Darke County Center for the Arts will present veteran stand-up comedian Rex Havens at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Saturday, November 11, the second Artists Series presentation during DCCA’s Sapphire Celebration season. According to DCCA Artistic Director David Warner, this family-friendly show will appeal to audiences of all ages. “Rex Havens provides a laugh a minute and does it with clean, positive humor and accessible sophistication.” Mr. Warner stated. The show starts at 7 p.m.
Rex Havens, a former college professor, made the transition to the comedy stage in the 1980s and has been delighting audiences around the world ever since. His take on marriage and family has entertained thousands in world-famous comedy clubs, on TV shows, on radio with Bob and Tom and others, and aboard cruise ships. He has also authored a book and CD entitled Everything I Needed to Know I Learned From My Wife!“, a clever and humorous look at men, women, love, and marriage.
This appearance by Rex Havens is sponsored by GNB Banking Centers; the Ohio Arts Council helped fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. Also, DCCA membership contributions and funds provided by Darke County Endowment for the Arts support all DCCA presentations. Additionally, DCCA receives funding from the Ketrow Foundation, Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial, Inc., and the John R. and Miriam H. Knick Fund of Darke County Foundation.
