Comprised of ex-Congressional staffers, the troupe, whose tagline is “We put the MOCK in Democracy,” addresses political problems by parodying politicians, Republicans and Democrats alike. Featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS and NPR, The Capitol Steps have recorded 30 albums including their newest, How to Succeed in Congress Without Really Lying. Celebrate Freedom of Speech with this one-night-only comedy show.
