Just being there, on the steps of the Capitol was brilliant, the building itself is massive and looks fabulous and knowing all the things that have happened there is mind-boggling!

LIving in Annapolis, this has been on our radar for years. Took a group of out of town relatives there on December 27th and it was a hit all around. Audience ranged from 15 year old to Grandma, and politics are all over the map. Everyone thought it was very funny. Nice venue (small enough that I doubt any of... More

The Capitol Steps provide political satire in a town loaded with opportunities to mock People in Power! At a show last week, they already had incorporated a skit on Sony and the North Koreans. My only complaint is that a couple skits were a little dated. For live entertainment, tickets are pretty reasonable -- $40. Lots of good restaurants within... More

Always lame. Never funny. Nothing remotely similar to John Stewart. Just one pandering, pathetic skit after another. Their notion of fairness simply means having the same number of sketches for each political party.

There was nonstop comedy from the beginning until the end of the performance. The political humor was fantastic; however, one did not need to be overwhelmingly politically savvy to understand the jokes and innuendos made.

Capitol Steps is a comedy troupe that provides a hilarious 2 hour parody of current US politics every Friday and Saturday night at the Reagan Office Building. They sing, they dance, and do impressions of all major and not so major political figures. Not to be missed.

A truly delightful evening of comedy. These performers are great and it truly helps when they are having fun as well! Worth a night of fun.

I´ve just passed by the front of Capitol, but immediately came to my mind movie scenes. The landscape of the Smithsonian Complex in front is beautiful view.

That the building is beautiful, everybody knows, right? No! It's not the same when you see it live... all the sorrounding is also very nice. It was a rainny day and even though it was a very nice place to visit. The colours of the trees mesmerized me!!!

Hilarious political parodies on both sides! Show is two hours long and is awesome! There is a bar available did early arrivals. Not a bad seat in the house. Totally worth the evening activity while you're visiting DC with the museums closing at 530. Show is awesome and super funny.
