"Punch" is known for its sharp political discussion and focus upon current events but with a mix of old New Orleans-area brew of culture and comedy. Along with legends McConnell and Vance are two politicos, Louisiana State Senator Conrad Appel and former State Representative and current candidate for clerk of court, Austin Badon.
Now, adding to the political comedy is hilarious comedian James Cusimano. Cusimano is one of the Politics with a Punch favorites. And, let's not forget the culture: On stage for the first time ever are Michelle Hirstius, author; illustrator and self-publisher along with Dee Dee Martin, owner of Fine Art Gallery and an Art Investor. How legendary New Orleans politics, culture and comedy can one get?
Here is how Jeff Crouere describes Thursday's Politics with a Punch:
Politics with a Punch is our local version of "Politically Incorrect." It started in 2002 and after more than 125 shows and 16 years, it has become a local political tradition. The show is jointly produced with Steve Sabludowsky of Bayoubuzz.com 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.
As usual, we have picked an outstanding panel for Thursday night with some of our favorite All-Stars plus some exciting newcomers. This program will be the spectacular 2018 Election Kickoff Show for Politics with a Punch.
