It’s time to get “Punched” for the 10th Anniversary.
And, Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards and other special panelists will be throwing the barbs at this very special Politics With A Punch anniversary program, Thursday April 12. Doors open for Happy Hour and Networking at 6pm. Audience members can also dine prior to the program which begins at 8pm. A complete sellout is absolutely anticipated.
During that period, Governor Edwards will be available for a special “book signing” of his autobiography written by former Punch panelist, Leo Honeycutt.
Politics With a Punch, a hilarious Louisiana-based "political incorrect" event, will be enjoying its 10th anniversary; yes, number ten, at the beautiful Eiffel Society on St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans.
Also on the star-studded panel will be Eric Paulsen of WWL TV, Jennifer Hale of Fox Sports and WVUE and popular musician and funny-man, Phil Melancon. More announcements for the six-person panel will be announced soon.
“Punch" is the brain-child of attorney and Bayoubuzz.com publisher, Stephen Sabludowsky who has been co-producing the event with Jeff Crouere. Crouere, a political columnist and talk show host is the emcee of the popular “Punch"programs.
"Ten years. Unreal. I have always called this program, ‘Funnier than laughing gas’ and this Diamond Anniversary will be a classic, said Sabludowsky.
"It has been a wild, wild ride, indeed. Looking back over these years and the talent and names who have graced our stage allows one to recognize how much this community offers”, said Crouere.
Politics With A Punch is held monthly. Over the decade of hilarious moments, it has included the best-known personalities, businesses and politicians throughout the state. Here is just a taste of the names of panelists who have graced the Punch audience.
