The most discussed social events offer ripe pickings for a comedy group taking the pulse of today’s conflicted world. Capitol Comedy takes aim at Washington politicians and social chatter through sketches, songs, song parodies, and brief video segments. Audience Alert: be prepared to laugh at yourself. Nothing is sacred as Capitol Comedy starts the satire steamboat on its merry way.
Capitol Comedy's new show, "Two Cheers for Democracy” takes some all-time favorite songs like “Stuck In The Middle With You” by Stealers Wheel, “Some Enchanted Evening” from South Pacific, “Reciprocity” from Chicago, and “Surfer Girl” by the Beach Boys, and gives them a few tweaks and a new set of lyrics which will have the audience rolling in the aisles. Think “Stuck In The Midterms With You” as moderate voters look forward with dread to the Fall 2022 elections or “Some Election Evening” as a liberal staffer discovers that, in politics, love does not conquer all.
If you’re longing to see “Two Old Guys” (Biden and Sanders) do a soft-shoe or Kamala Harris lamenting that maybe becoming Vice President wasn’t such a good idea, then you’re sure to find Two Cheers for Democracy the epitome of fun. The production also evolves to include skits and songs to make fun of new developments in our political landscape and our society.
