The Self-Proclaimed ‘Senate Comedian’ Shows His ‘Caucasian Skills’

Scanning the crowd in the back room of downtown D.C. sportsbar, Senate doorkeeper Scott Muschett, the self-proclaimed “Senate Comedian,” decided the script for his five minutes at the mic was all wrong.

Muschett claims his “Caucasian Skills” routine — promoted to friends and acquaintances on Capitol Hill via flyers, his website and his @SenateComedian Twitter presence — was dubbed by comedian Dave Chappelle. Quick-talking and deprecating, Muschett is sometimes likened to Rodney Dangerfield, but he’s got an overtly political angle.

“I do this basically as a Democrat with a spine to eviscerate political correctness,” Muschett told CQ Roll Call prior to taking the stage. “That is the torch that I carry.”
