The Capitol Steps
Need a Good Laugh? Join us! WUWF Public Media presents the Capitol Steps live, in concert, at the Pensacola Saenger Theatre, Friday, January 17, 2020, at 7:30 pm.
The Steps have been entertaining fans by parodying politicians, and the offices that once employed them, since 1981. Knowing that our politicians were entertaining us daily, Steps co-founders Elaina Newport, Bill Strauss, and Jim Aidala formed a troupe of Democrats, Republicans, and all persuasions in between, to capitalize on the abundant material. Since then the hugely successful comedic team has recorded more than 30 albums and grown to perform more than 500 shows a year, nation-wide, with multiple touring troupes. WUWF listeners will know the Steps from their wildly popular Politics Takes a Holiday specials broadcast twice a year on National Public Radio.
Priding themselves as “equal opportunity offenders,” the Steps scour the headlines - political and social – for material. As the Steps themselves say – they “put the ‘MOCK’ in democracy!”
