dardenneStage right.  Enter Jay Dardenne.

Added to an already-star studded panel for tomorrow's Politics with a Punch, will be, yep, you read it, Jay Dardenne, Louisiana's former Lt. Governor and currently, the state's Commissioner of Administration under Governor John Bel Edwards.

Punch is where politics intersects with laughter.

On Monday, Jeff Crouere and I announced what we then-considered to be an All Star, banner panel.  In the 14 years of our "punching", this one seemed like it could be one of our best.  

And, I must admit, we've had great ones--with Governors, Mayor's, Congressmen, comedians, actors, sports heros, NFL Hall of Famer's, you name them.

On Monday, when we first announced the program, we listed the following as our panelists:

Larry Beron, Outstanding Comedian; Local Actor
Bernie Cyrus, Author, Talk Show Host, Political Consultant
Caroline Fayard, Attorney, United States Senate Candidate
Walt Leger, III, LA State Rep., House Speaker Pro Tempore
Harry Shearer, Actor; Director, THE SIMPSONS Voice Talent Poppy Tooker, Radio/TV Host; Culinary Activist; Author
Vince Vance, Singer, Songwriter, LA Music Hall of Fame

Yesterday, we received confirmation that Jay Dardenne, one of the potential panelists we were seeking, was indeed, able to be on our great panel.

For those who don't know, one of Dardenne's qualities, besides being a terrific debater, a government administrator, father and more--he is really funny.  He had us rolling the last time he did punch.  He's also a perfect fit for our already existing eclectic panel.

Since we just announced the program Monday, there are still some seating availabilities, but, you better get on it and get your tics now.

For more information, about tomorrow's Politics with a Punch event, held at the Eiffel Society on St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans, here's the place to check it out

    Is political partisanship raising its ugly head again in the face of another Louisiana disaster?  Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards thinks so.

    Edwards got some rough treatment from a congressional committee in Washington, D.C. when he testified before it recently about the state’s response to flood problems.

jbeWith equal parts pugnaciousness and disingenuousness, Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards’ highly-politicized 2017 State of the State speech laid out a truly flawed vision for Louisiana going forward.
