A lot of comedians take on the absurdities of Washington, but few of them have actually been on the front lines of the madness that is politics. The Capitol Steps have. Founded over 30 years ago by a group of fed up Senate staffers, the Steps have been drawing from the ranks of Capitol Hill ever since, bringing their insider knowledge to bear in creating withering critiques of both sides of the aisle. During their long history, the troupe has released more than 30 albums, they've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on NPR during their "Politics Takes a Holiday" radio specials. If you're looking for a comedic antidote to the insanity of the 24-hour news cycle, look no further than the Capitol Steps' latest show, "Orange is the New Barack", at The Hanover Theatre in Worcester.
