"… a nationwide comic phenomenon!”
The New York Times

Defending the Caveman holds the record as the longest running solo play in Broadway history. Now a worldwide rock-solid tour de force that has won the heart of millions, Caveman is a hilariously insightful play about how men and women relate. Seen in 45 countries and translated into 18 different languages (and counting!), Defending the Caveman makes us roar with laughter and recognition about all the ways men and women fight, love and laugh. Don’t miss this “outrageously funny and surprisingly sweet exploration of the gender gap.” (Chicago Sun Times)

Kevin Burke, Las Vegas Entertainer of the Year, has been starring in Defending the Caveman since 2003. As the star of the Vegas production, Burke performed Caveman over 3,000 times, making Caveman the longest-running Broadway show in Las Vegas history. During that time, Burke also set the Guinness World Record for “Most Theatrical Performances in 50 Days.”

Burke has appeared on Oprah, NPR’s Talk of the Nation, CBS Morning News, Bob & Tom Radio Network, and The Dr. Laura Berman Show on SiriusXM.
