The Funny Side of Politics

I enjoy a good laugh about Parliament and Congress. There are some excellent websites that I like to visit regularly for my amusement.

CAPITOL STEPS

I saw their show during one of my visits to Washington DC - and have bought all of their CDs since my first trip to the city. What began as a show put on by congressional staffers for a party has become a must-see (and hear) event. They perform weekly in the Ronald Reagan building - and for those who can't get to see the show as often as we would like - their current satirical songs can be listened to on their website

SIMON HOGGART

Mr Hoggart is the parliamentary sketchwriter for the Guardian. An excellent observer of the Westminster Parliament - he is also very amusing. Read his current and archive pieces at
