Experience political satire at its funniest - and most musical! – with the singing troupe that puts the “mock” in Democracy. Selecting from a repertoire of albums developed over the past thirty years, The Capitol Steps offer a hilarious evening of parody that plays no favorites as they scrutinize our favorite political issues and the scandal of the day.
The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ("Don't quit your day job!"), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.
The Capitol Steps have been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC and PBS, and can be heard four times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their "Politics Takes a Holiday" radio specials.
