"The Capitol Steps make it easier to leave public life."
~Former President George H. W. Bush

“The show is a machine gun of comedy, firing one joke after another.” ~DC Theatre Scene

A PRELUDE to W&L’S MOCK CONVENTION
ALWAYS FRESH AND CRISPY STRAIGHT FROM THE HEADLINES
Political Satire that hits the Mark!—A laugh Riot! Listen and Laugh!

The Capitol Steps offer a mix of song parodies and stand-up, lampooning modern political leaders and taking on the major issues of the day. And, no one and no side is spared. No matter what's in the headlines, The Capitol Steps tackle the bipartisan spectrum and all things foolish. Heavy on puns and impressions with a sense of humor that works, the show is constantly updated to keep pace with the quickly changing news.

The Capitol Steps are the only people in Washington who attempt to be funnier than the politicians! Over 30 years ago, The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them, providing a unique blend of musical and political comedy to our nation’s Capitol and more. Each show consists of tasteful mockery guaranteed to leave both sides of the political spectrum laughing. The troupe has appeared on “The Today Show,” “Nightline,” “CBS Evening News” and for many years in specials for National Public Radio.

Sponsored in part by the Class of '64 Performing Arts Fund.
