The Gridiron Club and Foundation is often regarded as Washington’s most prestigious journalistic organization. Since 1885, we have been regaling an annual dinner with satire and songs that skewer Presidents and congressional leaders, political candidates and journalists too. We perform the Sunday show for friends like you.
The program features Gridiron members – including well-known faces that might include Al Hunt of Bloomberg, Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times, John King of CNN, 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.
