Defending the Caveman Vegas is a show that encompasses the classic Battle of the Sexes and is ideal Las Vegas entertainment for both men and women. Featured at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino, this Vegas comedy show is the longest running of any solo Broadway show ever. Insightful, side-splitting, and surprisingly sentimental, the show explores the gender gaps with honesty, amusement, and a viewpoint both men and women can relate to. The double-sided standpoint is one of the keys to the success of Defending the Caveman Excalibur show. Neither sex leaves feeling ridiculed, rather, they leave feeling more understood by the opposite sex through Burke’s hilarious comedy routine. Defending the Caveman Vegas is becoming a part of this show’s impressive history; worldwide success in more than 15 languages and in more than 30 countries worldwide. Excalibur has other shows onsite as well, including the all-male revue Thunder From Down Under and dinner show Tournament of Kings.
Defending the Caveman Excalibur show-goers will see an original story written in the later 1980s with a protagonist that is a primitive male. Yet the story is modern and so very up-to-date with the anti-aging conflicts between man and woman. The entire show is written by American comedian and actor Rob Becker, and acted out by comedian Kevin Burke who stars in Defending the Caveman Excalibur limited engagement. The show follows a monologue based on a plot revolving around men; They aren’t really jerks, they are simply misunderstood. The show set is Flintstone-esque with no more than a television and a chair. Kevin Burke is the only man on stage and does he ever pack a punch with scores of jokes in this Vegas comedy show at the Excalibur Hotel & Casino.
Defending the Caveman Vegas runs for a full hour and a half, as Burke proceeds with both humor and heart, creating the framework for the true reasons behind our differences. He touches on the possibility of our differences being unearthed genetic mysteries embalmed in the origins of human evolution. Burke goes on to relay, through a long series of incredibly funny jokes, the serious message that instead of one sex judging the other according to standards of our own genders, the possibility to pinpoint and accept our differences exists and can be done without hostility or acrimony.
