Defending the Caveman is a one man comedy written by American comedian and actor Rob Becker, centering on the many misunderstanding between women and men.

The show manages to represent the male perspective on various problems, while also being sympathetic towards the female aspect. Becker has described the performance as a vehicle of sorts that can show that men also have emotions, only their ways of expressing are different. It has been staged all over the world, and has been seen by over eight million people across forty-five countries. In addition, it has been performed in more than thirty languages. With its rights holders belonging to Theater Mogul, the play has been recognized as the longest performed solo play in Broadway history, as of 2007.

The hugely popular comedy, Defending the Caveman was written by Becker over a period of three years, during which he informally studied such disciplines as sociology, prehistory, mythology, psychology and anthropology. Caveman has been acknowledged as a peacemaker for the age-old, continuous misunderstanding between the male and female. The play has been described as ‘movingly tender’ to ‘howlingly funny’ by the Denver Post, while Variety has simply called it ‘hysterically funny’. Chicago Sun-Times has quoted that the show hits right on the ‘funny bone’ since its light-hearted defense for men and affection for women, has made it a winner among both sexes. The Toronto Star and The Sacramento Bee have described it similarly, with the former calling it a primal scream, while the latter has called it laugh-out-loud funny. The Miami Herald observes that the show’s hilarity lies in its keenly observed details and truths, noting further that it makes people laugh at them whether female or male. The New York Times called the play ‘a nationwide comic phenomenon’ while The Boston Guide has described it as deeply perceptive, very witty and sweetly understanding.
