Caveman’s “outrageously funny and surprisingly sweet exploration of the gender gap” (Chicago Sun Times) has made it “a comic phenomenon” (New York Times) that has won the hearts of millions in more than 35 countries and is sure to win yours.

Written by comedian Rob Becker, over a three year period that included an informal study of psychology, sociology, and prehistory, Defending the Caveman is full of wonderful scenarios that celebrate the differences between men and women, making it the perfect entertainment option for couples, or a girls night out.

Defending the Caveman will be performed by Ben Tedder. Tedder is a North Carolina native. After spending some time behind a microphone as a radio DJ in high school, he began acting while attending North Carolina State University in Raleigh, appearing in several University Theatre productions. After college, he worked with several theatre companies in the Raleigh and Chapel Hill area. It was during this time that he met his wife, Terrie, an elementary school teacher. Happily in love, they moved to Chicago, IL. Soon after, Ben was asked to join the “Caveman” clan. When not touring with Defending the Caveman, Ben auditions for film and television and is a member of the Chicago cast of the Off Broadway hit The Awesome 80′s Prom.

Defending the Caveman is produced by Theater Mogul — a global theatrical production company with shows in more than 40 countries performed in over 18 different languages. Theater Mogul’s main offices are located in New York City, Zurich and Reykjavik.
