Two Cheers for Democracy
McIntyre Hall Presents
Friday, October 7 7:30pm
Capitol Comedy, a newly formed troupe of talented sketch performers, singers, and impressionists with one goal in mind: to poke fun at today’s political and social events. It doesn’t matter if they’re targeting left, right, center, Red, Blue, or somewhere in between. 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.
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 you 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.
Audience Alert: be prepared to laugh at yourself.
Nothing is sacred as Capitol Comedy starts the satire steamboat on its merry way.
