Punch's 100th Show Thursday: Louisiana, New Orleans political comedy
Written by 

100thaniversaryJust call us 100.

Join us on Thursday October 4 for another unforgettable edition of Politics with a Punch, our local version of “Politically Incorrect.” It 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.

We launched Politics with a Punch in April of 2002 and we are in the midst of our 11th Season. The October 4th show will be a very special event, our 100th program.


It will be held at the beautiful Eiffel Society, 2040 St. Charles Avenue. This outstanding venue offers plenty of available parking, a superb staff and tremendous amenities for Punch patrons. It has been recently renovated and looks outstanding. Join us for this special program and enjoy another fabulous panel.

The doors open at 6 p.m. for Punch Happy Hour as the Eiffel Society bar will offer a delicious menu of specialty drinks for our patrons. As an added treat, dining will be available for our patrons at the Eiffel Society. After our event ends, we invite you to stay with us for cocktails and socializing with our fellow patrons and panelists.

Our show will begin at 8:00 p.m. As usual, we have picked an outstanding panel with some of our favorite all-stars plus some exciting newcomers. Check out our exceptional line-up of celebrities for this sizzling summer show:

Margarita Bergen, Social & Entertainment Diva of New Orleans

Bernie Cyrus, Band Leader, TV Host, Music Executive

Steve Kelley, Award Winning Times Picayune Cartoonist

Yvonne Landry, Comedian, Founder of N.O. Comedy Fest

Spud McConnell, Movie Star, Talk Show Host, WWL AM

John Young, President of Jefferson Parish 

We’ll discuss….Saints 0-4, what happened to the Black and Gold Super Bowl? Broussard the Dragon Slayer becomes the Dragon; Is Nagin feeling the heat? Feds focus on River Birch, the Titans of Trash; Entergy Fumbles Isaac, it is Time to Break-up the Monopoly? Council Says Papa Don’t Preach in Fr. Quarter; Second Line Vendors and Cab Drivers Upset at City Hall; Newspaper Wars Begin; Hornets Exec Detained by TSA with Loaded Gun; Debate a Game Changer in Presidential Race? Madonna Threatens to Strip if Obama Wins, will this give election to Romney? Along with more great topics, as always, it will be a Prime Time for Punch!

With so much serious discussion, it is helpful once a month to be able to poke fun at some of the hilarious, insane and unpredictable events which occur in this state.  Since 2002, along with Steve Sabludowsky of Bayoubuzz.com, I have been a part of one political tradition that has grown into quite a success story. 

In our over ten years of existence, we have featured some of the top political, business, comedic, media and entertainment talent in Louisiana.  I am honored to host Politics with a Punch, an event which has attracted sell-out crowds for the past several years.  

Tickets are only $20.00 per person/$35.00 per couple.

 

If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please RSVP by sending me an e-mail reply. You can also purchase tickets in advance at a discounted price ($15.00 per person/$25.00 per couple) on-line at our website:

For e-mail reservations, I need to know the number of people in your party as the tickets will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.

 

At Punch, we guarantee everyone will have a good time, and anyone who has attended one of our events can attest to that fact.

For more information, call me at #504-669-6076.

 

Be sure to arrive early to enjoy cocktails and dinner at the exquisite Eiffel Society as well as an outstanding musical performance from the talented entertainer Giselle Bonfaire. 

Thanks again for your support of Politics with a Punch. Without you and other friends, we could not have such successful events each and every month.

Hope to see you Thursday night at the fabulous EIFFEL SOCIETY!
