Kevin Burke, of Defending the Caveman at the D Las Vegas, has announced that he will be leaving the Las Vegas production following his performance on August 2.
Burke has been the face of Defending the Caveman in Las Vegas for 10 of the years it has been in the market. He’s performed the show at Golden Nugget Las Vegas, Excalibur Hotel & Casino, Harrah’s Las Vegas and the D Las Vegas. He is honored to have been the last Caveman to be hand-picked by original Caveman and writer, Rob Becker. Burke has performed the show worldwide since 2003 with more than 5,000 performances under his belt.
Burke was recognized in 2008 as Las Vegas Entertainer of the Year and holds the Guiness World Record for “Most theatrical performances in 50 days,” both awards he achieved during his time with Defending the Caveman. After performing the show for more than 15 consecutive years, Burke has announced he will end his run of daily Defending the Caveman shows and focus more on touring and being able to spend time with his family.
“We wish Kevin all successes in this next chapter of his life,” said Óskar Eiríksson, CEO of Theater Mogul and world-wide producer of Defending the Caveman. “He has added his own touches on the show that are continually remembered by Caveman fans throughout the time it has been in Las Vegas.”
“Kevin Burke is a world-class entertainer and his hard work has created a lasting legacy for him in Las Vegas,” said local show producer John Bentham. “We will miss having him as our resident Caveman. He is the ultimate entertainer whose talents are limitless.”
