The Capitol Steps Return To Mayo In January

The Capitol Steps Return To Mayo In January

(MORRISTOWN, NJ) -- The Capitol Steps return to Mayo Performing Arts Center to offer their comedic take on all things political on Friday, January 5, 2018 at 8:00pm. The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. Tickets range from $29-$59.

The group was born in December, 1981 when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. Their first idea was to stage a nativity play, but in the whole Congress they couldn't find three wise men or a virgin. So, they decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and they created song parodies & skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor.

In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ("Don't quit your day job!"), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.

Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 30 albums, including their latest. They've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard twice a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their radio specials.



Mayo Performing Arts Center is located at 100 South Street in Morristown, New Jersey.

When you are a Jewish son of Russian immigrant parents who divorce when you’re young, you probably are destined to be a comedian. If nothing else, you’re born with a wealth of material. Rutgers alumnus Ben Rosenfeld blends his family’s experience as Russian Jewish immigrants in America with his philosophical beliefs, political observations, and unique characters. The result is something he calls “smarter comedy for smarter people.”
