The Capitol Steps began in 1981 as a group of U.S. Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people who employed them. In the years that followed, having bit the hands that fed them, many of the Steps also ignored the conventional wisdom not to quit their day jobs. The ensemble now tours the U.S., delivering heaping portions of much-needed good humor to the long-suffering American public as the best antidote to politics. They have recorded over 30 albums, given many thousands of shows, and they’re funny – very funny!
