Known as Broadway’s smash comedy about the sexes, the one-man comedy show, Defending the Caveman takes audiences on a hilarious journey through the ways men and women relate. Created by comedian/writer Bob Becker, and performed by Kevin Burke, the show attempts to debunk the age-old myth that all men are jerks. The show suggests that the same characteristics that were conveyed by cavemen are still apparent in modern day behaviors of men and women and that understanding this is the key to understanding the opposite sex. The insightful play will have both men and women laughing and eventually loving each other as they recognize themselves in the stories being told onstage. Caveman has been seen in 45 countries and translated into 30 different languages and currently holds the record as the longest running solo play in Broadway history.
