The Washington Post calls The Capitol Steps: “An oasis of good-natured ribbing in a fiercely partisan world. The entire audience, Republicans and Democrats alike, roared with laughter”.
DC Theatre Scene says “The Capitol Steps is a political comedy show that offers a mix of song and standup, lampooning modern political leaders and taking on the major issues of the day. .If you’re a political junkie, you’ll get a healthy dose of the daily news served spit-roasted and heavily mocked.”
The Capitol Steps works overtime to capture the new administrations’ antics in satire and song. And since The Capitol Steps find their laughs in materials ripped from today’s and tomorrow’s headlines you never know whether Steve Bannon, Jeff Sessions, or Kim Jong-un might appear from Mar-A-Lago or The White House.
