Rex Lasat Navarrete (born May 27, 1969 in Manila, Philippines) is a Filipino American comedian whose material is geared toward Filipino audiences. Sometime after his birth in 1969, his parents left the Philippines and immigrated to the United States, settling in Chicago. Navarrete, on the other hand, was raised by his grandparents in the provinces of Cavite and Batangas. He later reunited with his parents and his baby sister at the age of three. Eventually, the Navarrete family moved to South San Francisco, California where he spent the rest of his childhood. Navarrete graduated from San Francisco State University, majoring in film and Asian American studies. He then attended the University of California, Berkeley where he received a master's in Public Health and Public Policy.
