If it’s a general election year, it must be Capitol Steps. Pennsylvania Avenue meets Broadway in a satirical revue set to the music of classic pop hits and show tunes. The Capitol Steps poke fun at all sides and are the one thing sure to earn bipartisan support. Watch them take the governing class to task with wit and glee.
Born out of a desperate attempt to put on Christmas entertainment for a staffer’s party in 1981, the complete lack of three wise men led them to put on a series of satirical skits. Since those early days, many of the “Steps” have given up their day jobs and turned satirical comedy into their livelihoods. Put together, the performers have worked in 18 Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience!
