The show is on tonight!
The mudslinging comes from the left and the right in this hilarious, punditious show inspired by the boondoggles, shenanigans and pork barrel absurdities of our United States government. Whether the residents of the wild West Wing or the robed denizens of the supremely silly court, they can all run, but not drop-out, from comedic scrutiny.
The Capitol Steps began in 1981, with co-founders Bill Strauss, Jim Aidala and Elaina Newport, at a Christmas party in the office of former Senator Charles Percy. Like most things in Congress, they never knew when to stop.
Over the past thirty years, the Capitol Steps have recorded thirty-one albums, and appeared on Good Morning America, The Today Show, 20/20, Entertainment Tonight, Nightline, CNN’s Inside Politics and dozens of times on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered. For the past twenty years, they’ve produced quarterly specials for public radio and have been featured in three national specials for public television.
The Capitol Steps do not use any profanity
in their routines. However, according to the
scandal of the day, some songs/subjects/routines
may include suggested innuendo.
