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 for a girls night out.

Defending the Caveman in Jacksonville will be performed by Cody Lyman. Cody began his career on stage at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. His work at CSU garnered him several Irene Ryan Nominations, a departmental Best Actor award, and an award of Highest Distinction at the Research and Creative Symposium, for his self-created performance art. Cody helped foster and co-produced CSU Theatre Sports (now Clownbox Productions), still one of the most successful improv troupes in Colorado. In 2000, Cody moved to Chicago, where his big shoulders would blend in. His work as a trolley-driving tour guide gave him a crash-course in Chicago history and allowed him to work his way through the famed Second City Conservatory. Cody was working professionally as an improviser and in children's theatre when he joined Caveman in 2004. Between Caveman performances, Cody is continuing to develop other aspects of his career, appearing in national commercials (Buffalo Wild Wings), voiceovers (Coors), and feature films (Eden Court).
