Cheesy and Shallow are standard expectations around here. Interesting and serious though funny are rare qualities at least on the Strip. I have seen enough to know even the best shows often are junk food leaving one with a stomach ache afterward.
Caveman is the exception. It is just decent and insightful theater. No special effects, no vulgarities, no cheap laughs. It is about relationships but smarter than your average standup style.
The show lasts about 75 minutes. The room is small. You park at Harrahs and simply walk across the casino and go up one escalator. Easy. If you go to 4PM the crowd is likely light and there is no reason to come early since your seat is pre-assigned. I recommend the show not as Vegas razzle dazzle but as a good intelligent experience at a fair price. That is rare around here.
VIP tickets are closer to the stage and include a T-Shirt.

Defending the Caveman_ has experienced tremendous success in Las Vegas, racking up an impressive 1,200 performances since its Las Vegas debut in June 2007.
“Defending the Caveman has had such support from the Improv team over the past two decades. It is exciting for the show to be moving to a space shared by The Improv and, specifically, run by Improv founder Budd Friedman,” said John Bentham, the show’s producer. “The Improv theater at Harrah’s will be a wonderful place to see the show.”
“Defending the Caveman has been part of the Improv family for many years now and we are delighted to welcome the show back to the Improv stage,” said Improv founder Budd Friedman. “For anyone who hasn’t seen it yet, Defending the Caveman is full of laughs and great for both men and women alike.”
“Our guests have come to expect a night of great entertainment at The Improv and we are certain Defending the Caveman will not disappoint,” said Rick Mazer, Harrah’s Las Vegas regional president. “We couldn’t be more pleased that Harrah’s is the location for these two dynamic shows to come together, once again, and share a stage. We have no doubt they will continue to build upon the showroom’s comedy legacy.”
Defending the Caveman is a hilariously insightful play about the ways men and women relate. It offers side-splitting opinions on contemporary feminism, masculine sensitivity and the erogenous zone. The longest-running solo play in Broadway history, Defending the Caveman originally opened in San Francisco in 1991 and moved to Broadway in 1995. Since its debut, Defending the Caveman has been seen by more than eight million people worldwide and continues to grow in popularity.
Comedian Kevin Burke stars in the Las Vegas run of Defending the Caveman. A seasoned comedic stage actor, playwright and director, Burke has starred in the Broadway tour of Defending the Caveman since 2003 and will continue to charm audiences at Harrah’s.
