punch-sept-nungesser 2It's time for Politics with a Punch, election season 2015, and you're invited.

Politics with a Punch is held monthly on stage before a live audience. It is our own local version of “Politically Incorrect.” It is a humorous, fast-paced, free-wheeling, no-holds barred discussion of what is happening in our city, state and nation.


Our next show will be special as we celebrate our Election Season Kickoff.

We launched Politics with a Punch in 2002 and have enjoyed 13 years of great times thanks to our awesome panelists and faithful patrons.

During our colorful history in New Orleans, we have featured some of the top political, business, comedic, media and entertainment talent in Louisiana. We have also enjoyed poking fun at the unique and colorful world of Louisiana politics.

The next program will be held on Thursday September 17 at the beautiful Eiffel Society, 2040 St. Charles Avenue. This outstanding venue offers valet parking, fine dining, and a superb staff for our Punch patrons. It has been recently renovated and looks exceptional.
