With hilarious insight on contemporary feminism, masculine sensitivity and the erogenous zones, DEFENDING THE CAVEMAN mines the common themes in relationships that go straight to the funny bone while warming the heart. DEFENDING THE CAVEMAN makes us laugh at ourselves, about all the ways that men and woman fight, laugh and love.

Cody Lyman grew up in Durango, CO and graduated from Colorado State University where he began his career on stage. 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 the Colorado. In addition to over 100 improv shows, some favorite Colorado performances include Shep in Café Theatre's performance of Early One Evening at the Rainbow Bar and Grille, Gogo in Blackbox Theatre's production of Waiting for Godot, Bo in Bas Bleu Theatre's production of Bus Stop, and Snug in Openstage Theatre's performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

In 2000, Cody left the Rocky Mountains to move to Chicago. 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 DEFENDING THE CAVEMAN in 2004. Between DEFENDING THE CAVEMAN performances, Cody has appeared in national commercials (Buffalo Wild Wings), voiceovers (Coors) and feature films (Eden Court).

Cody Lyman stars in DEFENDING THE CAVEMAN from September 18 through October 13. Kevin Burke, the Vegas headliner for the past seven years, will play the rest of the run. Kevin has done nearly 4,000 performances of DEFENDING THE CAVEMAN and broke the Las Vegas record making DEFENDING THE CAVEMAN the longest running Broadway show in Las Vegas history. He was named Mr. Vegas by the mayor. Kevin has a background in stand-up comedy, he was a Ringling Brothers clown and he studied improvisation at Second City in Chicago.

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 girl's night out.
