I was nervous about going to the show because my husband is European and I was not sure if he could relate or follow. But even if you only fairly follow political news, you will be able to understand the comedy. Very funny skits!

The Capitol Steps put on a fun evening in a comfortable auditorium in the Ronald Reagan building. They are clever and skewer any of the pols, who of course give them such rich material to work with. Their race through 30 years of political highlights...More

Not rolling in the aisle funny, but clever and entertaining. Would recommend it to everyone. Highly topical, skewering everyone. And affordable!

We are locals and had not been to this show in many years. Our only question afterwards was, "why did we wait so long to go back?" Fun, great venue, well located, perfect tourist or local night out. Lighthearted, but smart. Great value.

The Capitol Steps is a very funny and creative comedy troupe that specializes in political satire. No current politician, topic or situation goes untouched. The skits are kept fresh and up to date on current news stories. We laughed out loud thought out the show....More
