The Capitol Steps Satire Show
We put the MOCK in Democracy.
What began as a Christmas Party performance amongst Senate Staffer friends has grown into quite the impressive performance routine, The Capitol Steps Satire Show.
This show features members of the Senate who 'set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them'. The skit began at the aforementioned Christmas Party in 1981, a small group performing song parodies and skits with a special brand of satirical humor that has certainly stuck. Today, the performers keep the show going in DC each Friday and Saturday at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center.
Altogether, the performers in this group have worked in 18 different congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate Staff. They have recorded over 35 albums and have been featured on CBS, ABC, NBC, PBC, and NPR, and their latest hit is titled 'Lirty Dies'.
