Satirist Scored Award for '80s Lobbying Spoof

Local funnyman Dave Nuttycombe — he of Washington City Paper and Travesty Films fame — recently discovered that “How to Lobby Your Congressperson,” a tongue-in-cheek vignette about wooing Congress that he helped craft a quarter-century ago, won itself a Telly Award.

No small feat, given that only the suits that commissioned the project probably ever saw it.
