It’s a comedy show! The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staﬀers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. 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 30 albums, including their latest, Mock the Vote. 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.
