Capitol Steps logoThe Capitol Steps comedy troupe will perform at Yorktown High School this weekend as part of a fundraiser.

The group — which was formed when a group of Senate staffers set out to satirize their employers — has been poking fun at Washington politics for more than 30 years. They are regularly featured on National Public Radio and have made appearances on network TV.

The Steps will be performing at the Yorktown High School Auditorium (5200 Yorktown Blvd) from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 13

The group is coming to Yorktown to benefit the student productions and educational workshops of the school’s theater program. Tickets are available online for $40.

    Sorta like the ARlnow readership poking fun at Arlington politics – Zimmerman, Libby, Tajeda, corrupt streetcar contractor zipping up and down the market-driven affordable housing alley enjoying a styrocup of delicious froyo while watching a bicyclist run a stop sign causing a luxury SUV to flip over. In other news, a drunk garlic breath pizza eater got into a brawl in Ballston during an attempted bank robbery.

    Capitol steps is Buh-Buh-boring.

    Gee, Sally, thanks for that…nothing like ruining a fundraiser for a bunch of kids. Do you crash PTA bake sales too, and say “Don’t eat that, it tastes like crap!” And for the record, The Capitol Steps are hysterical.

      Some people just need to slam everything. Makes them feel better about themselves, I guess. Truly sad.

  • RicoS

    Maybe some people think they’re buh-boring because the satire goes over some people’s he-heads. They are funny. You go, Mom.

  • YHS THEATRE MOM

    This is a major fundraiser for the YHS Theatre department, which really needs community support. Please, everyone, buy a ticket or two and come out for an evening of laughs that also HELPS OUR KIDS!!!

    ARLNow says 5:00 to 8:00. Tickets say 5:00 to 7:00.

    Cap Steps are wonderful! Maybe some people have undergone a sense-of-humor-ectomy and can’t appreciate the satire.
