I think the first Capitol Steps special I ever heard was a fourth of July special. I remember laughing very hard. After that I looked forward to each and every performance that came on NPR. The Capitol Steps are a comedy troop made up, mostly, of people who have worked for various congressmen and senators over the years. It started as a gag at a Christmas party and is now a thriving business. Their website is www.capsteps.com and they have some of their songs up to listen to if you have no idea what I am babbling about.
Peter found out that the Capitol Steps would be coming to a local theater and got tickets for it. Last night we went to the performance and this morning my sides still hurt. There was a whole Lirty Dies section that once you got how it was done, you could translate it in your brain that was just one of the funniest things I have heard in a long time and remember I was at the Colbert Report about two weeks ago. I was also very partial to a song called “10 pills and you’re fine” about the commercials you see on TV produced by the drug companies.
We got a CD afterwards and chatted with the group about various subjects including the Mets.
We were thinking about going into the city today but considering that the weather is flipping between ice and rain, I think we are going to bag that idea and find something to do around the house.
I am grateful that I was able to see the Capitol Steps live.
