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.

I love comedy and though it was true material I can't even give this one a thumbs up because it it two thumbs down. Scripted in every way. Comedian got mad at someone in the adience after he just asked us to interact with him. Put a bad vib over the show. And I would bet that there were 2... More

Hi Felix. While we do ask for input from the audience at Defending the Caveman from time to time during the show, we do not solicit, nor do we tolerate abusive sexual commentary of the kind shouted out during the show in question. Caveman is a safe place for men, women, and yes, even the actor. That kind of bashing... More

Good show, best seen with a partner as funnier when you can both relate. There are other better more expensive shows to see but for value for money I'd recommend if you gave the time.

It is supposed to be funny but the language was vulgar. Why can't comics be funny without using bad language?

My husband and I both thought this was a very funny show! It was cleverly done, and we really laughed a lot. It was not too crowded on a Sunday evening, so we had plenty of room to adjust our seats for a good view. The price is right, and we recommend it.

Nice value but not as many non-stop laughs as I expected. With the length of time this show has been on I expected a little more

My daughter bought my husband and I tickets and we saw this show last year. We loved it!!! We were in the front row. The show is very funny and we laughed throughout the entire show. What we really didn't really like is that we were packed very tightly together. It was ok because we were together....but we would have... More

This is a stand-up comedy routine molded into a one-man show. I say this up-front because I thought from the previews and ads it was a skit-based comedy show with two people in it. It's a great show for couples (as long as you don't mind some strong language at times; not too bad by Vegas standards but definitely enough... More

I really enjoyed this show, it started off a little slow to set the scene but was very funny after that. You will easily relate, at times it seemed as if he was repeating how I communicated with my wife. It attempts to explain why the sexes don't always understand each other in a very funny. Highly recommended for couples.... More
