"Defending the Caveman" Repeat performance in Makati!"
"I laughed so hard my sides ached and tears ran down my face!"
"The show is so funny and so true!"
"What a hilarious and insightful show!"
"This play can save marriages… I'm not kidding!"
These are just some of the comments overheard last February 2010 at the Insular Life Theater in Alabang, where audiences had just seen local theater veteran Joel Trinidad in "Defending the Caveman," the longest-running one-man comedy show in Broadway history, which has sold over 8 million tickets worldwide in 16 different languages.
Why is this show such a hit everywhere in the world? Well, is there a more widely discussed subject than the difference between men and women? There are hundreds of books written on the subject but nevertheless there are few texts which address this eternal discussion point as humorous and as recognizable as the monologue "Caveman." "Defending the Caveman" shows in a hilarious, clear, and familiar way how different men and women are. Whatever the nationality is, both men and women will identify themselves clearly in the show's message.
"Defending the Caveman" was greeted upon its Philippine premiere with uncontrollable laughter, knowing nods of agreement, and a resounding standing ovation! Then, "Defending the Caveman" played to another appreciative crowd at the RCBC Plaza, Makati last May 2011.
And now, come see what all the raves are about...

Review: I actually watched this during their May 2011 run, staged at the RCBC Plaza as well. Joel trinidad is an admirable theater actor (I also sometimes watch him in his SPIT performances). Amazing that he could memorize and ad-lib all those lines being a one-person show. Though the script could be improved by incorporating examples that are part of our Filipino culture so it could drive the sentiments of the audience more close to home =)
