Since I'm out of the loop, The Capitol Steps co-founder Bill Strauss passed away in December from pancreatic cancer.

I first heard of The Capitol Steps after my parents returned from a trip to Washington DC.  They purchased copies of the 1993-1995 tapes "The Joy of Sax", "Lord of the Fries", and "A Whole Newt World".

While each tape contained political satire of the time set to the tunes of popular song, each album ended with Bill Strauss reciting a sketch called "Lirty Dies" (Dirty Lies, but with some fetters lipped.)

If you can, go.  Please.  And laugh :-)
