The Capitol Steps first began tickling political funny bones over thirty years ago as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. Since then, the Capitol Steps have recorded over thirty-four albums and have been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and can be heard twice a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.


The Capitol Steps put the “Mock” in Democracy!

The Capitol Steps were born in December, 1981 when three staffers 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 nor a virgin! So, they decided to dig into the headlines of the day and created song parodies and skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor that was as popular in Peoria as it was on Pennsylvania Avenue.

In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ("Don't quit your day job!"), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.

In the last thirty years, the Capitol Steps have recorded 28 albums and appeared on "Good Morning America," the "Today Show," "20/20," "Entertainment Tonight," "Nightline," CNN's "Inside Politics," and can be heard four times a year on NPR stations nationwide. They have performed for five U.S. Presidents.

"They're the best. There's no one like them, no one in their league."
— Larry King, CNN

"The Capitol Steps make it easier to leave public life."
— Former President George H. W. Bush
