Big Government

Bashing the government is nothing new. It's been done since the beginning of time. All right, well, the beginning of civil society. Regardless, when you're sitting there laughing at the foibles and follies of the members of Congress -- let's be honest, it's been pure comedic relief over the past few years -- you're usually doing so from the outside. Capitol Steps aims for the opposite. If you're really looking for some good material, it's best to get it from the inside -- i.e., staffers, the people being bossed around by some of those farcical congressional members. The show, hosted by the Kravis Center, features past and current staffers airing all of their congressional dirt. With the current congressional situation you know it must be good -- we're just hoping someone who works for Michele Bachmann will be there. This Tuesday showtime starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $40. The Kravis Center is located at 701 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach. Call 561-832-7469, or visit
Tue., March 12, 3 & 7:30 p.m., 2013
