    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.

    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.

    Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 30 albums, including their latest, Desperate Housemembers and Barackin′ Around the Christmas Tree. They′ve been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard 4 times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.

    “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 Bush

    “#@!*! you guys are funny!”
    Author Tom Clancy
