      Capitol Steps

      Political Satire straight from the headlines! And, most of the members of Capitol Steps have worked on Capitol Hill: some for Republicans, some for Democrats, and some for members who sit firmly on the fence. The group was born in December, 1981, when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. Their first idea was to stage a nativity play, but in the whole Congress they couldn’t find three wise men or a virgin. So, they decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and they created song parodies & skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor. Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 35 albums, including their latest, The Lyin’ Kings. They’ve been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials. "I don’t get up in the morning and look at the news and say, ‘Is this good for the country or bad for the country?’ I say, ‘Is it funny and what rhymes with it?’ —Elaina Newport, Capitol Steps co-founder.
