Kevin BurkeSeasoned comedic stage actor, playwright and star of Defending the Caveman, Kevin Burke, will take the stage for the show’s 1,500th Las Vegas performance on September 21, 2010 at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino. In celebration of this milestone, $15.00 tickets will be offered to Nevada residents for 15 days starting September 21 to October 5.

“Defending the Caveman has been a worldwide brand for nearly two decades and its success in Las Vegas is proof of the timeless humor and quality of the show,” said show producer Craig Golden.

“Defending the Caveman” is a hilariously insightful play about the ways men and women relate and disagree. 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.

“Defending the Caveman” has performed for sold-out crowds in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States.

In 2003, Kevin Burke was introduced to Rob Becker, the creator of “Defending the Caveman,” who wrote the show during a three-year period while conducting an informal study of anthropology, prehistory, psychology, sociology and mythology. Burke has been performing the show ever since.

Burke has been honored as Las Vegas Entertainer of the Year for his work in “Defending the Caveman,” and shows no signs of slowing down.
