New Orleans Politics, Comedy, Vince Vance At Punch
Written by 

Join us on Thursday December 16 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.


This Christmas season show will be held at our first home, the fabulous LE CHAT NOIR, 715 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans. This is a great venue for a very special show. Join us as we celebrate the holidays and enjoy another fabulous panel.


The doors open at 6 p.m. for Punch Happy Hour as the LE CHAT NOIR bar will offer a delicious menu of specialty drinks for our patrons. As part of the festivities, the incomparable “piano man” Armand St. Martin will perform at 7 p.m.


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:


  • Caroline Fayard, Atty, Former Lt. Gov. Candidate, Rising Political Star
  • Tom Gregory, Emmy Winning TV Personality, National Headlining Comic
  • Mikko, Comedian, Writer, Playwright, Actor, Napoleon Impersonator
  • John Osterlind, Afternoon Drive Host on Rush Radio, WRNO 99.5 FM
  • Sammy Steele, Celebrity Hairdresser, Philanthropist, Business Leader
  • Vince Vance, Hall of Fame Musician, Bandleader, New Orleans Legend 

On our star studded show, we’ll cover all of the major issues and controversies of the day in a light hearted and humorous manner with our unique Politics with a Punch style.


With the new Republican Congress, a new Democratic congressman in New Orleans, another term for David Vitter, TSA on a rampage, higher taxes in New Orleans and the many travels of Bobby Jindal, there will be plenty of 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 nine 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 $15.00 per person/$25.00 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 on-line at our website:




In addition, I need to know the number of people in your party as the tickets will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.


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.

As a special treat for our Punch patrons, Vince Vance will perform his Christmas classic “All I Want for Christmas is You” after the show.

  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
