It’s time to vote.
Before The Daily Show, Full Frontal, and The Colbert Report had us laughing at headlines, a group of senate staffers got together to perform skits and parodies as entertainment for an office Christmas party. “Our first idea was to stage a nativity play, but in the whole Congress we couldn't find three wise men or a virgin! So, we decided to dig into the headlines of the day and created song parodies and skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor that was as popular in Peoria as it was on Pennsylvania Avenue.”
Over 35 years later, The Capitol Steps have refined political satire into an art form. They bring a collective eighteen Congressional offices, 62 years of House and Senate staff experience, and wry wit together in the name of bipartisan lampooning, offering timely laugh therapy to audiences around the nation through TV, radio, and their weekly live performances at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC.
Don’t miss what the DC Theatre Scene calls “a machine gun of comedy, firing one joke after another.”
