Capitol Steps; or, How to Laugh (Harder) at the Government

Apr 26, 2010

Liberal Shop of Horrors, the new Steps album.

For the 18th year in a row, this troupe of former Congressional staffers will bring to Caltech its patented mix of political parody and scathing satire. Leaving no lobby unturned, the Steps make light of left, right and center. I actually bought one of their CDs once, by accident. I was 11. The jokes weren’t really my speed (it was the Clinton era), but have improved with age. A very funny bunch indeed.
