Defending the Caveman

Defending the Caveman


The ‘only original’ master of ‘Defending the Caveman’ is back touring South Africa.

His first three performances to ever kick off in Somerset West can be seen at the charming Playhouse Theatre on 4, 5 and 6 May. Residents of Somerset West will be entertained in your own town for a change with one of the best, smash hit solo comedies in the world.

Tim Plewman’s way of managing to ‘capture’ his audience in his hands is palpable. It is an incredible performance with one person on stage giving of his all. You can laugh one moment and be digging your partner in his/her ribs because of the truth of the comments, the next. All the tales ring home in such an incredible way. It is extraordinarily funny and worth every cent to spend an evening laughing which is as one knows is ‘medicine for the soul’!

Back by popular demand, Plewman puts new life and energy into ‘Defending the Caveman’, adding to his 1 759 performances of the longest-running and most successful solo comedy in South African theatre history. “I am going to bring my wife here to see it”, said Geoffrey Matenji from SAfm radio with tears rolling down his cheeks from laughter.

“Laugh, I neeeaarly died! This play is not an exercise in soul-searching, it’s a belly laugh night out with similarly bemused friends” says Len Ashton. Weekend Argus

      Hi Anneke, thank you for contacting us. We unfortunately don't have him signed up for anytime in the near future, but try Grand West calendar if he's offering any shows there?
