This politically inclined sketch comedy troupe began over thirty years ago as a group of Senate staffers setting out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom (“Don’t quit your day job!”), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent sixty-two years of collective House and Senate staff experience. Some have worked for Democrats, some for Republicans, and others for politicians who firmly straddle the fence.

Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over thirty-four albums, including their latest, How to Succeed in Congress Without Really Lying. They’ve been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.

No matter who or what is in the headlines, 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!?”

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