The Capitol Steps are certainly a national treasure. They leave no one unskewered but in a fun way

“So funny I cried”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2011

This review of current political topics is hilarious. I went with a friend and we were both laughing through the entire show. A must see while in DC. Not for children.

“Brilliant Political Satire with a Musical Flare.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2011

Capitol Steps is a hilarious, ever changing political comedy revue set to familiar musical scores. The writers continually update their repertoire to include the most current political events from across the country. It is non-partisan, poking fun at all angles of politics and current issues equally. We took our teenage daughter, a Junior in High School at the time, to see this review. If your teenager is old enough to understand the political events of the day, and/or is in a government class, then he or she would be able to understand the humor and appreciate the show. I recommend it for ages 16+ for those who follow current events and want a humor filled evening.

This is a must see activity in DC. Great satire skits on our political system done by excellent actors. No holds bared.
