Everyone is a Target When Political Satire Legends
Capitol Steps
Performs LIVE at Englewood’s bergenPAC

WHEN: Wednesday October 27, 8:00 PM
bergenPAC, 30 North Van Brunt Street, Englewood
TICKETS: $67, $47, $37, $27

The renowned political satire group Capitol Steps comes to bergenPAC during election week and holds no punches. The hilarious group takes jabs at both the Republican and Democratic parties. These former members of Capitol Hill have 62 years of collective experience in the House and Senate. They  will perform musical satire and skits including, “Barackin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” “I’m So Indicted,” “Papa’s Got a New Baghdad” “Here’s to You Reverend Robertson,” “Little Plumber Boy” and “Fools on the Hill.”

The satire group has performed since the Reagan years and has offered their two cents about every presidency since then. Capitol Steps exhibits the great tradition of freedom of speech through their “not-so-subtle” take on politics.

The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ("Don't quit your day job!"), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.

Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 30 albums, including their latest, Liberal Shop of Horrors and Barackin' Around the Christmas Tree . They've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC and PBS and can be heard 4 times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.
