|Description:||If you saw them here last year, you know. Or maybe you've seen and heard them on
NPR, NBC, PBS, and ABC.
Don't miss this show!!! Seriously, it's one of the funniest shows going
on contemporary politics. No one is spared.
The Capitol Steps began in 1981, at a Christmas party in the office of former Senator Charles Percy. Like most things in Congress, they never knew when to stop. Over the past twenty-six years, the Capitol Steps have recorded twenty-nine albums, and appeared on Good Morning America, the Today Show, 20/20, Entertainment Tonight, Nightline, CNNs Inside Politics, and dozens of times on National Public Radios All Things Considered. For the past nineteen years, theyve produced quarterly specials for public radio and have been featured in three national specials for public television. Theyve performed for five U.S. Presidents (six if you include Hillary.)
Many of the performers have worked on Capitol Hill, some for Republicans, some for Democrats, and some for members who sit firmly on the fence. In fact, the current cast of the Capitol Steps has at one time or another infested the offices of eleven US Senators and seven Members of the House of Representatives. Most of these politicians have since been defeated or placed under investigation.
No matter whether you're a Democrat or Republican, you can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum and all things equally foolish. What more would you expect from the group that puts the "MOCK" in Democracy?!
