“Lord was this funny.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Wife and I did not have evening plans and where tired from a long day of walking site seeing. We stumbled on this by accident and got tickets there and it was a great change of things. You can buy drinks before and during intermission (last about 2 hours) and the room very comfortable in the Reagan Building. These folks are hilarious and you don't have to be politically savvy to get it all. Kids (less than 18) probably won't appreciate but boy was this a real find.

“A brilliant cast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

This comedy routine is a perfect venue when visiting Washington DC. The actors have all worked at the Capitol so the jokes and spoofs, all set to familiar tunes, come rapid fire. It's a good thing to know current events extensively but even then some things will slide past because their delivery is fast, yet still effective. The cast loved entertaining and were enjoying themselves along with the audience. It was a brilliant cast who were also brilliant actors and actresses. This was really a good time.

“Entertaining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

This is a satire, mostly cast in familiar songs. The cast seemed to really enjoy themselves and it moved quickly. Probably the best thing was the sound system, since, unlike many venues, you could make out just about every word. While a bit expensive it is well worth a couple of hours.
