Why See Defending The Caveman?

Defending the Caveman is a comedy written by American actor and comedian Rob Becker about the misunderstandings between men and women. Defending the Caveman has been seen in theaters around the world by more than eight million people in forty-five countries. It has been performed in over thirty different languages.Theater Mogul is the rights holders of the play.

Written by comedian Rob Becker over a three year period that included an informal study of psychology, sociology, and prehistory, Defending the Caveman is full of wonderful scenarios that celebrate the differences between men and women, making it the perfect entertainment option for couples, or a girls night out.

A blend of stand-up comedy, lecture, and therapy session, it attempts to resolve the war between the sexes. The play manages to stand up for the male viewpoint, while still being sympathetic to the female side of issues as well. Becker describes the play as a vehicle for showing that "men have emotions, but they express them differently.

In 1996, it became the longest running solo (one man) play in the history of Broadway. It still holds that record today.
