Get ready for some much-needed comic relief! We are offering you an opportunity to experience an iconic Washington event – the annual Gridiron Show. For more than 130 years, the show has merged political satire with your favorite tunes, and skewered the nation’s top political candidates and journalists, congressional leaders and Presidents and has been a Washington tradition since 1885!
The Gridiron Club and Foundation first regales official Washington at a white-tie dinner with satire and songs. The next day, the club puts on another performance – known as the Gridiron Sunday Reprise - for associations, alumni groups, friends and family.
The program features Gridiron members — including well-known faces that might include Jonathan Karl of ABC News, Andrea Mitchell and Chuck Todd of NBC, Judy Woodruff of PBS and Bret Baier of Fox News — performing hilarious songs and skits in costume. Syndicated columnist Mark Shields relays highlights of the speeches that were delivered the night before, which typically include remarks by the President and a leading Democrat and leading Republican. Running the musical performance is the director of the United States Marine Band, Lt. Col. Jason Fettig, the Club's musical director.
