The Capitol Steps

Putting the 'mock' in democracy for 33 years!

The Capitol Steps are what Washington would be like if everyone were funnier and could sing.P.J. O'Rourke

Having failed to 'find three wise men or a virgin' in Washington, D.C. for a holiday nativity play in 1981, three desperate Capitol Hill staffers dipped into the day's headlines, cooked up some irreverent acts that skewered the entirety of our national political scene... and became an instant hit. Thirty-three years, millions of laughs, and many awards later, The Capitol Steps are perennial favorites both live and on the radio. Quipped former President George W. Bush, 'The Capitol Steps make it easier to leave public life.' You'll never look at the evening news the same way again!
