vance foxThe voice, the hair. And so much more.   

This is how I am framing the August edition of our Politics with a Punch which will be blast, as always

Just look at the lineup:

Larry Beron  
Outstanding Comedian; Local Actor; Punch Favorite 
Bernie Cyrus  
Author, Talk Show Host, Political Consultant & Musician    
Caroline Fayard   
Attorney; United States Senate Candidate   
Hon. Walt Leger, III   
LA State Rep, (D-New Orleans); House Speaker Pro Tempore 
Harry Shearer   
Actor; Director; Comedian; Musician, THE SIMPSONS  Legend 
Poppy Tooker 
Radio/TV Host; Culinary Activist; Speaker & Author 
Vince Vance   
Singer, Songwriter, Bandleader, LA Music Hall of Fame Member

So, who's the voice and of course, who's the hair?

The hair is an easy one.  

That distinction goes to Vince Vance and his famous cone.

The voice?

Well, the obvious candidate is Harry Shearer but, don't forget, Vance did not become famous because of his hair.  He has quite a good voice and voices plenty of strong opinions.    

And, believve me--the rest of our talent is "no chicken salad". 

Indeed, they are bonafide personalities--controversial, informational yet very funny--which is the point of Politics with a Punch, anyway--politics and fun.

So, here are the rest of the particulars as expressed by the show's host and EMCEE, Jeff Crouere:

Doors Open at 6 p.m.; Show Begins at 8 p.m.; 

Eiffel Society; 2040 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans 
Be sure to arrive early to enjoy cocktails, dinner and musical entertainment 
at the exquisite Eiffel Society. Valet Parking is provided.   
Politics with a Punch 
is our local version of "Politically Incorrect." It started in 2002 and after more than 100 shows and 14 years, it has become a local political tradition. The show is jointly produced with Steve Sabludowsky of and it has grown into quite a success story. Punch is a fast-paced, free-wheeling, no-holds barred discussion of what is happening in our city, state and nation. We place a premium on having a good time and expect plenty of laughs as we discuss the controversies and the outrageous antics of our local leaders and scoundrels.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
