Kevin Burke, star of Defending the Caveman, officiated the wedding of a couple from North Bay Ontario, Canada following Friday night’s performance at the D Las Vegas.
Mike Anthony, 47, and Tanya Retson, 52, have traveled to Las Vegas six times previous, and called this their “Lucky Seventh” visit together. The couple befriended Burke after seeing the show years ago, and welcomed the star of the ultimate relationship comedy’s offer to marry them. Burke is an ordained minister.
Anthony a widower, and Retson, a really confirmed bachelorette met through a mutual friend during a New Years concert, but it took Anthony three months to hunt down the courage to ask Retson out. The rest is history. Anthony is a City Councillor in North Bay, and a Community Relations Manager for a retirement living community. Retson is a car salesperson.
Defending the 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.
Performances are 4 p.m. daily and 8:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday at the D showroom at the D Las Vegas. Tickets are $34.95++, general admission; $44.95++, VIP admission and includes priority seating and a Defending the Caveman t-shirt; and $58.18++, Platinum admission and includes first-tier seating, a commemorative photo, Defending the Caveman t-shirt, and one well, domestic beer or house wine.
