One of Washington DC’s Comic Monuments
Gross National Product (GNP) is noted to be the "Capitol’s satirical gang.always funny" by The Washington Post. Since 1980 Gross National Product have been turning "headlines into punchlines" with sketches, musical parodies, skitcoms, and audience-inspired improvs centered on national politics. World famously funny, GNP has the critics on a rave from the New York Times to The London Observer to Life magazine and The Wall Street Journal. As fast with impressions as with improvs, GNP is a "first-rate comedy feast"- The Wall Street Journal. GNP appears nationally and internationally on stage, in newsprint, and on television and radio. They have starred in five of their own national comedy specials for PBS stations nationwide and are a regular at the Smithsonian Institution’s Resident Art series. Frommer’s magazine has noted that GNP is one of Washington’s "comic monuments." Discovery Channel recently had members appear in "Washington Scandals."
Over the years, the titles to the shows have changed as the political seasons change from "Man Without a Contra 1989" to "A Newt World Order in 1995" to "All the President’s Women 1998" to now "Son of a Bush." The Washington Times calls them the "fastest guns in town."
