Description

Capitol Comedy is a performance group that uses the winning formula of musical comedy, multimedia animation, and political satire to engage audiences in an entertainment that is hilarious, insightful and non-partisan. Our new show takes on the Biden administration with songs and sketches poking fun at everything from diversity-driven decision-making to dog training to dumping dollars on the electorate. The other side takes it on the chin for putting up roadblocks to voting, judicial appointments, changing the Electoral College and anything that leans liberal.
Capitol Comedy combines parodies and original compositions to create a lively musical program. Audiences will delight in new lyrics to old standards such as “Camelot” (“Kamala”) “Beer Barrel Polka” (“Let’s Print Some Money”), “Seventy-Six Trombones” (“Seventy-Six Skin Tones In My Cabinet”), “Hernando’s Hideaway” (“Mitch McConnell’s Mausoleum”) and “When the Saints Go Marching In” (“When Those Souls Go To the Polls”). The six-person cast is composed of talented actor-singers and dancers with Hollywood, regional theater and off-Broadway experience. Their considerable performance skills include the ability to channel a range of political and other public figures. Capitol Comedy shows are timely and sharply satirical without being demeaning or vulgar. Since there is plenty on both the right and the left that needs criticism and evokes laughter, we aim for material that will be appreciated by and amusing to audience members whatever their political persuasion.
