It’s really no laughing matter. Are you sick and tired of listening to our elected officials’ partisan sniping, quibbling and bickering? Rather listen to bi-partisan sniping creatively set to music? Then the Capitol Steps are for you! Now that’s a laughing matter.    

If you’ve never seen the Steps in concert you owe it to yourself. If you have, then no explanation is necessary. The Capitol Steps are one thing conservatives and liberals, Democrats and Republicans alike can totally see eye to eye on (once they wipe away the tears from laughing so hard). 

For nearly 3 decades, the Steps touring troupes have been showing us the humor in American politics and society. Setting their satire to popular songs we quickly recognize, but creating twists, turns and pointy places in the lyrics, they help us laugh at ourselves and our times. Most of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers. They say cumulatively the current performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.

Since they began in 1981, the Capitol Steps have recorded 29 albums, including their latest, Barackin' Around the Christmas Tree and Obama Mia. They've also been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard 4 times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes A Holiday radio specials. If you are looking for a gift for that hard-to-fit-person-who-has-everything, an evening of laughter after all the holiday hub-bub is a perfect fit. Visit the Capitol Steps Online.
