Plot[edit] A blend of stand-up comedy, lecture, and therapy session, it attempts to resolve the war between the sexes. The play manages to stand up for the male viewpoint, while still being sympathetic to the female side of issues as well. Becker describes the play as a vehicle for showing that "men have emotions, but they express them differently."[3]


Productions[edit] Before the Broadway production "Caveman" was a stand-up comedy routine that Becker performed around America. Becker took over three years to write the comedy and performed the play until early 2006.[3] In 1996, it became the longest running solo (one man) play in the history of Broadway. It still holds that record as of 2016.[4][5] A production has run in Las Vegas since 2007.[6]
