Defending the Caveman, the Broadway smash hit about the differences between the sexes, is proud to announce its new home at The Improv at Harrah’s Las Vegas. Starting January 17, Defending the Caveman will perform daily at 7:00 p.m. Originally opened at the San Francisco Improv in 1991, this new Las Vegas home allows the show to return to its Improv roots.
“‘Defending the Caveman’ has had such support from the Improv team over the past two decades. It is exciting for the show to be moving to a space shared by the Improv and, specifically, run by Improv founder Budd Friedman,” said John Bentham, the show’s producer. “The Improv theater at Harrah’s will be a wonderful place to see the show.”
“‘Defending the Caveman’ has been part of the Improv family for many years now and we are delighted to welcome the show back to the Improv stage,” said Improv founder Budd Friedman. “For anyone who hasn’t seen it yet, ‘Defending the Caveman’ is full of laughs and great for both men and women alike.”
“Our guests have come to expect a night of great entertainment at The Improv and we are certain ‘Defending the Caveman’ will not disappoint,” said Rick Mazer, Harrah’s Las Vegas regional president. “We couldn’t be more pleased that Harrah’s is the location for these two dynamic shows to come together, once again, and share a stage. We have no doubt they will continue to build upon the showroom’s comedy legacy.”

The longest running solo play in Broadway history, “Defending the Caveman” has been seen by more than eight million people worldwide and continues to grow in popularity.
