I saw this show in Baltimore 20 years ago and remembered how funny it was...and how well the comedy was rooted in actual antropological research. It takes Mars and Venus to a different level. The show in Vegas this trip was a bit different than the Baltimore show, but equally funny. For a one-man show, it's non-stop funny with every... More

First let me start off by saying I am a professional photographer who was hired to shoot this show. For the most part my job consists of fulfilling a shot list and I don't pay too much attention to the show. A little history I have taken pictures of Kevin Burke on red carpets in Las Vegas for a few... More

Kevin Burke nailed it! I haven't laughed that hard in a very long time. We went to the show with my in-laws and we all could relate to his stories. I would highly recommend this show to anyone. Very entertaining!

if you're looking for a show to enjoy yourself and laugh out loud this is it. Kevin Burke does a great one man performance. I strongly recommend seeing this show with your significant other. Both will learn a lot about the relationship of men and women with humor being the best vehicle.

I knew this show had been out for many years but had never had a chance to see it. We were looking for a show to see and couldn't decide. We had seen Jersy Boys and all the cir de so lei shows-how does one decide? Donny and Marie didn't appeal and neither did cris angel. I didn't want to... More

This was the second time my husband and I have seen this show. It is a one man show and it is terrific. The comic points out humor in the difference of the perception of the male and female sexes and why we react to the same situation in totally different ways.......Hence, his defense of the caveman theory. Very original,... More

The set was simple, but well designed. Kevin Burke is the actor in Las Vegas. There are many other shows across the country. The audience was a mix of singles and couples. Both groups were laughing because they could relate to his humorous view of the men VS women differences. There is some use of "inappropriate for under 18" language,... More

Funny show with couples laughing at their own foibles being the topic of the joke. Twenty year old daughter liked most of it, but got edgy at some of the stereotypes. But that's the joke, these stereotypes are how people often get by in life.
