Ken Rynne was working for the US Senate Majority Leader and moonlighting with the famous Capitol Steps, when he met the master of political satire Mark Russell. Ken gushed, “Mr. Russell, I want to be you when I grow up.” Without missing a beat, Mark replied “That can’t happen soon enough.” Let the word go forth, from this tiime and place, Washington needs more comedy and we have answered the call!
After a misspent youth on the Hill as a lawyer and as a banker, Ken gave up making money to make laughs and side-splitting musical parodies. With his piano accompanist and sidekick they join forces as Planet Washington “spoofing politics, pop culture, and all that passes for ‘news.’” – Harvard Crimson
