I auditioned for the Lead in the 1 Man Show, Defending the Caveman. The Director talked to me quite a bit after the audition, so I know they were interested.  I was going for the “Deadbeat dad puttering around in the garage” look. Unfortunately, they decided to cast a tall, thin, blond, Icelandic guy as the Caveman. Womp, womp.

This picture ran in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Trailer for Defending The Caveman


Defending the Caveman holds the record as the longest running solo play in Broadway history, plus the longest running Broadway play in the history of Las Vegas!

Caveman has been seen in 45 countries and translated into 18 different languages (and counting!). Kevin Burke, Las Vegas “Entertainer of the Year,” stars in the national casino tour of Caveman.

A hilariously insightful play about the ways men and women relate, Caveman has both sexes roaring with laughter and recognition. Affectionate nudging between audience members occurs during the performance as they recognize themselves in the stories being told on stage.

Defending the Caveman makes us laugh at ourselves about all the ways men and women fight, laugh and love. That’s why couples all across America and around the world are in love with Defending the Caveman.

The wildly popular comedy Defending the Caveman was written by Rob Becker over a 3-year period during which he made an informal study of anthropology, prehistory, psychology, sociology and mythology. Caveman has since become a peacemaker in the ongoing misunderstandings between men and women.

Caveman originally opened in San Francisco in 1991 and soon moved to Dallas. After a year in Dallas—now an unqualified hit—Caveman went on to sold-out engagements in Washington DC, Philadelphia and Chicago, before opening on Broadway in 1995. After running two and a half years, playing 702 performances at the Helen Hayes Theater, Caveman entered the record books as the longest running solo play in Broadway history.
