Jim “Rex” Bannon
Jim “Rex” Bannon was raised in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, but still refuses to grow up — friends and family will attest to this. He attributes his sense of humor to his folks who openly bought him Mad magazines and let him watch Monty Pythons Flying Circus. A Engineering graduate of Marquette University, Rex, runs a high tech company during the week and escapes to the world of improv on the weekends. Improv blame/credit goes to his wife who gave Rex a gift of training at the Second City several years ago. After graduating from Second City, Rex continued training at The Comedy Shrine and is now one of the resident actors.
