Verbal Winks

Rex Fleming Players

The Rex Fleming Players, the student theater troupe at Houston Baptist University, proudly presents Verbal Winks the school’s only live improv comedy group. Our goal is to provide the University and the Houston Area with the highest quality live entertainment possible. As an extracurricular club we also provide students from a variety of majors and grades a place to be involved from acting to writing, directing, or technical support, all under the guidance of a
faculty advisor.

Multiple Friday nights per semester, we put on a showcase of club members performing short-format and long form performances based on audience suggestions. Every show is unique, and it’s the best entertainment you’ll find in all of Houston for $1. We also perform for off campus groups who are looking for high-quality entertainers for their large church and social functions. For booking information please contact

Verbal Winks also hosts a weekly club meeting where we play improv games, learn acting technique, and prepare for upcoming events. Students can participate as club members or they can receive elective credit. EVERYONE is welcome, and all courses of study can benefit from the quick-thinking, performance, and mental agility that improv can provide.
