In their long run of 30 years, this troupe truly are the best in satirical comedy. We have seen them under multiple regimes and they leave no one untouched. The group we saw this time not only gave us comedy scenes about those in power but also those who wish to be in power. Lirty dies is a standard of this show; it is an art rarely seen which turns the words into somewhat questionable but hilarious descriptions of the person or persons being roasted. One has to be somewhat knowledgeable about politics to truly understand all of the people in the scenes, however a quip about Paula Deen went over better than one about Arizona and the new laws.
It is definitely not for children; they would be bored. We had the extra treat of being there when they were recording the July 4th event for NPR. Also, one can meet the performers after and chat with them. Overall it is a great event for adults in DC. The cost is about $50; it is well worth the money.
