The Capitol Steps will bring their hilarious political satire to Randolph-Macon
College just in time for Election 2008. The group will perform on Thursday, October
23, 2008 at 7:30 p.m. in R-MC’s Crenshaw Gymnasium. The Steps are keeping up with
current events, and their new routines take sardonic aim at this year’s presidential
The comedy troupe has been together for more than 25 years. The Capitol Steps began
as a group of Senate staffers who were given the task of planning the entertainment
for a Christmas party. They created song parodies and skits about people and events
on Capitol Hill, and their shows became so popular that they traded their political
careers for comedy.
The Capitol Steps have recorded 28 CDs, including their latest, Campaign and Suffering,
which pokes fun at all the presidential hopefuls, as well as the Supreme Court.
The CD also includes all-new Lirty Dies, the Steps’ trademark wordplay that is nothing
short of hysterical. The group has performed for five U.S. Presidents and appeared
on national programs including “Good Morning America,” “The Today Show,” “Inside
Politics,” and NPR’S “All Things Considered.”
This event is part of the Randolph-Macon College Performing Arts Series and takes
place during Homecoming Week. For more information, call 804-752-7213, 752-3146
