Need a good laugh about Washington? America’s foremost political satirists are making their annual Fourth of July appearance at the festival! These former Congressional staffers have been putting the mock in democracy for 36 years, poking fun at both sides of the aisle with brilliant song parodies and hilarious sketches that lampoon up-to-the-minute issues, events, and personalities. Enjoy songs like “If We Only Had a Brain Surgeon” and “Here We Come a-Waffling” from their latest album, What To Expect When You’re Electing, and get ready to enjoy politics being funny again. This program is generously underwritten by Anne and Howard Cooper.
