This troupe of former Congressional staffers is sure to upset those right, left and center. Putting the "mock" in democracy, the Steps leave no issue untouched with their own special brand of satirical humor and scathing parody. The Capitol Steps is the only group in America that attempts to be funnier than the Congress! They monitor events and personalities on Capitol Hill, in the Oval Office, and in other centers of power and prestige around the world and then take a humorous look at serious issues while providing a nationwide laugh for millions. Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded twenty-seven albums, and appeared on "Good Morning America," the "Today Show." "20/20," "Entertainment Tonight," "Nightline," CNN's "Inside Politics," and dozens of times on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered." They've performed for five U.S. Presidents (six if you include Hillary.)
Based in Washington, this is their second year performing at Gunn High. This is a benefit for the Gunn Robotics Team (GRT) and the cost of the ticket over $20 is tax deductible.
One more week to vote!
