During the special sendoff, Damian Costa, regional director of entertainment operations at Caesars Entertainment presented Burke with a proclamation, signed by Mayor Carolyn G.

John Bentham, local producer of Defending the Caveman also presented Burke with certificates signed by Senator Dean Heller and Governor Brian Sandoval. Additionally, several celebrities contributed footage to a special video saying goodbye to Burke.

Since 2003 Burke has starred in the critically-acclaimed Broadway tour of Defending the Caveman – a role he was hand-selected for by the show’s creator and original caveman, Rob Becker. In 2007 Burke planted roots as star of the permanent Las Vegas run of the show and most recently broke the Guinness World Record for the most theatrical performances in a 50-day period. Burke has performed more than 3,000 shows during the Las Vegas run and more shows than any other actor in the history of Defending the Caveman, including the original caveman Becker.

Burke’s successor, Chris Allen, began performances on Tuesday, May 14. Burke will continue to perform select limited engagements in the National Broadway Tour of Defending the Caveman as well as a limited engagement at Harrah’s Laughlin this fall.
