Speaker: Capitol Steps
Nationally Acclaimed Political Satire Troupe
- The Lighter Side of Politics
One-time congressional staffers who have since turned comedians, the Capitol Steps now travel the country satirizing the very people and places that once employed them.
No matter which side of the political fence you’re on, you’re guaranteed to enjoy the Capitol Steps. Their production is rip-roaring political fun, one constantly updated to reflect today’s political headlines, with new costumes, props and music. In no way mean-spirited, their hilarious musical satire takes potshots at the outrageous goings-on in Washington, unafraid to say in public what most of us are thinking! The Capitol Steps perform over 300 shows a year all over the country and frequently appear on television. Over the last 20 years, the group has performed off-broadway and produced 24 recordings, including their latest, Papa’s Got a Brand New Baghdad and such ditties as Between Iraq and A Hard Place; Osama Come Out, Tomorrow; Bill’s Way; Fools on the Hill; Son of a Bush; One Bush, Two Bush, Old Bush, New Bush; It’s Not Over Till the First Lady Sings!; First Lady and the Tramp; and more.
