What happens when Washington, D.C.’s premier political satire group – The Capitol Steps – calls it quits after nearly 40 years? Most folks would agree that it was a great run, and the story would end there.

But an intrepid group of cast members and a co-writer would not go quietly into that good night. This band of fools reflected on a world without musical political satire, and didn’t like what they saw. And just like that, The Capitol Fools were born.

While foolish enough to embark on this new journey, they were smart enough to not reinvent the wheel. Fast-paced, laugh-out-loud show…check. Equal opportunity offenders…check. Skewering both sides of the aisle…check. If a “Steps-style show” is wrong, they don’t want to be right.

The Capitol Fools hold up a mirror to our crazy political culture, providing hilarious song parodies and foolish reflections that inspire belly laughter as both sides of the aisle get skewered. Cast members from past seasons of the Capitol Steps perform all the beloved bits, the mind-boggling backward-talking spoonerisms, break-neck costume changes, over-the-top impressions, and song parodies reflecting the day’s news.

The spirit, irreverence, and D.N.A. of The Capitol Steps lives on with The Capitol Fools!
