Toronto-based comedian Andrew Chapman returns to the stage on February 11, 2016, as title character in ‘Defending the Caveman’
Coming off a three-week stand up tour, Toronto-based comedian and actor Andrew Chapman will return to the stage as the Caveman in one-man show Defending the Caveman on Thursday, February 11, 2016. Opening at Toronto’s Alumnae Theatre (70 Berkeley Street), the play will run on select dates from February 11 to 26.
Defending the Caveman opened for previews in October 2015 at the Al Green Theatre. Written by comedian Rob Becker, Defending the Caveman explores misunderstandings in relationships and the way men and women relate through a mix of comedy, lecture and a form of therapy for the audience. The play holds the record for the longest-running one-man show in the history of Broadway and will be celebrating its 25th anniversary this season.
Andrew will be seen next on television hosting hidden camera series Made Up! on Disney XD. Premiering in the United States in February 2016, the show will also be available in Canada on YTV in Fall 2016. With 13 episodes in the first season, the series will follow teens who pull pranks on unsuspecting family members.
Andrew recently wrapped up filming on two independent feature film projects. He was in Cancun in early December 2015 filming the lead role of Chris in Duchess of Cancun. Based on the writer-director’s real life events, Chris gets invited on a trip to Cancun by an old high school flame, thinking this could be the chance to rekindle their relationship. Unknown to him, his ex-girlfriend has a lot more to her past than Chris bargained for.
Set to finish filming at the end of January 2016 is the indie film Contractors produced by Sudden Storm Entertainment. Andrew stars as Mark Miller, a cop who lost his girlfriend to his enemy and is forced to build a “safe house” or else he could lose everything. The problem is what he builds may not be what he thinks it is.
In December 2015 Andrew worked with Kessel Run Studios to release short film Bar Wars. The Star Wars parody was filmed exclusively in Toronto’s trendy neighbourhood The Annex and is now available on YouTube (https://youtu.be/epqfZ92Wqtw).
Andrew can also be seen starring as the mysterious Will in new Vervegirl TV web series V Morgan Is Dead. Produced by SmokeBomb Entertainment, a Shaftesbury Company, the 20-part series is about Violet Morgan, a young woman who finds a new life in the afterlife. New episodes are available Thursdays on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbvYWjKFvS5pW7sI6rk2LTIGgPtFPOu8t).
In between filming for the big and small screens Andrew continues to hone in his comedic skills. He performed his one-man show Cable Box Alarm in November 2015 and currently in the midst of a short stand up tour from Ottawa to Toronto at all the Absolute Comedy clubs.
