All the news that’s fit to print, fake and parody. No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum with their hilariously biting musical satire. What more would you expect from the group that put the “MOCK” in Democracy?!

The Capitol Steps first began tickling political funny bones over thirty years ago as a group of Senate staffers who set out to poke fun at the very people and places that employed them. Since they began, The Capitol Steps have recorded over thirty-six albums, including the latest, Make America Grin Again (2018). They have been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard four times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials. 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 and performed for five US Presidents.  Most cast members have worked on Capitol Hill; some for Democrats, some for Republicans. No matter who holds office, there is never a shortage of material.  Performer and co-writer Mark Eaton states, “We’ve always said our show’s greatest enemy is a competent government. Therefore, we should be around for a long, long time.”
