The Hilarious Caveman

"Defending the Caveman" is the longest running one man show in Broadway, translated into 30 different languages, shown in 45 countries with 8 million tickets sold worldwide. This show explains the differences between men and women which have created a lot of miscommunications between the sexes and made a lot of couples split up. Rob Becker, writer of the show, is a comedian and actor who made this show originally intended for a stand-up comedy but it has grown and brought into Broadway because of its witty and very funny comparisons of the sexes that have touched a lot of people's lives.

The set of the show looks like it came from “The Flintstones” to remind viewers that although the show defends the ‘caveman,’ it must be taken lightly. One thing good about the show is that it does not support male dominance. The whole one hour and ten minutes is one long explanation of why men act the way they do and enlighten women about them but at the same time it warns men that they should be aware of their actions and try to be more understanding to women. It advises men to adjust to women and inform women to also be understanding to men.

To ensure the equality of men and women, this show is directed by both a man, Michael Williams, and a woman, Cathy Azanza-Dy. The value of the show is not to give excuses why men behave the way they do but simply gives an overview of how men think. It does not degrade women but it praises how women are very essential to the lives of men. By being fair to both the sexes, this show is a must watch for single people who are looking for love, for couples who are starting their journey, for those who have been married for years and for those who are planning to get married so that they may appreciate the other gender. I myself strongly recommend those couples who are having problems with one another to take a chance and watch this show. Maybe, just maybe, this show can help straighten out miscommunications and misunderstandings because of gender differences.
