Defending the Caveman playing at the Garner Galleria Theatre in Denver through October 27

Jokes about the differences between men and women probably date back to the time we actually lived in caves but Defending the Caveman offers personal accounts and unique observations that keep it from feeling dated.

Colorado native Cody Lyman is immediately likeable as he accepts an equal share of the blame for the many miscommunications that have plagued us for centuries.

Plus he kind of reminds me of Bruce Campbell.

Lyman brings each anecdote back to a central theme - which always makes me laugh harder.

In fact, I laughed embarrassingly loud multiple times because I had done something he considered inexplicably female within the past few hours.

I went with a friend for a girls' night out and we had a great time. But it would make a great date night as well.
