As we approach the apex of this political season and Election Day draws nearer, the Capitol Steps, a D.C.-based political satire troupe that’s had America’s sides splitting with laughter for over 30 years, couldn’t have more inspiration to pull from. Pulling no punches and taking shots at all, the Capitol Steps head to Nebraska’s Capital City to perform at the Lied Center for Performing Arts on Oct. 21 at 7:30 p.m.

Each show consists of tasteful lampooning guaranteed to leave both sides of the political spectrum laughing. With performances including sketch comedy, song, dance and everything in between, the Capitol Steps unapologetically spoof the latest headlines indiscriminate of subject or subject matter. Being masters of bi-partisan parody, they’ve kept audiences laughing across the country for years by poking fun at all sides of the aisle.

Beginning as a group of Senate staffers looking to liven up the office Christmas party over 30 years ago, the Capitol Steps have evolved further than anyone could’ve imagined. Since that first meeting of the hilarious minds in 1981, the Capitol Steps have released more than 25 albums including their most recent release, “What to Expect When You’re Electing.” They have also made appearances on The Today Show, Nightline, CBS Evening News and for many years, in specials for National Public Radio.

Tickets are on sale online at LiedCenter.org, by phone at 402-472-4747 or at the Lied Center box office. Tickets are available to students at a 50 percent discount with a valid NCard.
