Defending The Caveman

Philadelphia native Vince Valentine is appearing in Philadelphia for a return engagement of Defending the Caveman and he’s funnier than ever. This show is uproarious as Vince deftly explains the differences between the sexes using personalized anecdotes. Dubbing his latest iteration, “Caveman 2.0”, this performance has a new contemporary caveman set.  While the basic premise is the same as the original Broadway smash hit written by Rob Becker, the show appearing at Penn’s Landing Playhouse through August 30 has been updated with videos, and references to cultural media. Vince has regaled audiences with laughter from Long Island to Hawaii. One of five Cavemen nationwide, he said he is given the freedom to add his own jokes and trade with the other four when discovering a quip that works exceptionally well with an audience. Vince has been performing in this show since 2004.  When asked how he keeps his performances fresh he replied, “You can never repeat a performance. You can only repeat the process that takes you there.” Every night is starting anew as he explodes with rip-roaring humor that gives insight into the variances of the male and female experiences and their expectations of each other, dating back, of course, to the time of the caveman. Tickets are available by calling 855-HIT SHOW (855-448-7469) online at or at the Penn’s Landing Playhouse box office. Penn’s Landing Playhouse is located at 211 S. Columbus Blvd (at Walnut St). The theatre is inside the Independence Seaport Museum.  Discounted parking is available in the Open Air/City of Philadelphia lot adjacent to the Seaport Museum.
