Hillary And Donald On The Klein Stage, Courtesy Of The Capitol Steps

The only thing funnier than a City Council meeting is watching The Capitol Steps. The political parody group comes to the The Klein on November 5th, the weekend before the general election. They are equal opportunity cashew crushers.

On Saturday, November 5th at 8 pm The Capitol Steps, a Washington DC-based comedy troupe that began as a group of Senate Staffers, will present a show at The Klein in Bridgeport. The show is based on songs from their current album “What To Expect When You’re Electing.” This is the group’s third appearance at The Klein. They’ve performed there the last 3 presidential election years.

The Capitol Steps have been a Washington, DC institution for over thirty years, providing a unique blend of musical and political comedy to our Nation’s Capitol and more. Each show consists of tasteful lampooning guaranteed to leave both sides of the political spectrum laughing. The troupe started in 1981, when John McCain was only 63 years old! Since then, they have appeared on “The Today Show,” “Nightline,” “CBS Evening News” and for many years in specials for National Public Radio.

Their show is constantly changing, strenuously bi-partisan, and includes songs about the election madness, as well as other things in the news, such as “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Crimea,” “Ain’t No Pipeline, Now It’s Gone,” and “The iMpossible iWatch.”

If you’ve ever wanted to see Hillary Clinton sing a show tune, Donald Trump sing a rock song, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie do a classical ballet, this might just be the show for you!

Tickets: $30, $45 & $60 and can be purchased by calling (800) 424-0160 or visiting www.theklein.org. Group rates are available for groups of 15 or more. Box Office Hours are Monday – Friday from 10AM – 4PM and 2 hours prior to show time on the weekends.

    Seen them a few times, great show every time.

    We have read that laughter and tears reside close to each other on the emotional spectrum. For all those who fear this election or otherwise would choose to take a pass, attending this performance in our town, Bridgeport, may be a mentally and emotionally healthy way to deal with the election personally. And if past performances plus the ripe material presented this year are any indication, many may end up laughing so hard they leave in tears, but can enter the polling booth the following Tuesday and make a mark for their candidates. TIME WILL TELL.

    Capitol Steps never disappoints.
