Ringside Politics with a Punch - On Stage


Politics with a Punch is held bi-monthly on stage before a live audience. It is our own 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.

Each panel is hosted by TV and radio personality Jeff Crouere and includes comedians, celebrities, politicians, newsmakers and community leaders. The program was co-founded and is co-produced by Steve Sabludowsky, publisher of Bayoubuzz.com.

With so much serious discussion, it is helpful to be able to gather at Punch and poke fun at some of the hilarious, insane and unpredictable events which occur in the New Orleans area. 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.

Punch takes place at the Eiffel Society, 2040 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans. Doors open at 6 p.m. for Happy Hour, networking and dinner and the show begins at 8 p.m.  

We just kicked off our 15th season and have produced over 120 outstanding programs for our patrons.  Our show has become quite a political tradition in New Orleans and has featured the top leaders in our state, including former Governors Dave Treen (deceased), Edwin Edwards, Kathleen Blanco, Bobby Jindal and current Governor John Bel Edwards. Also Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser, State Treasurer John Kennedy, Congressmen Steve Scalise and Cedric Richmond, former New Orleans Mayors Marc Morial and Ray Nagin and current Mayor Mitch Landrieu. We have also hosted hundreds of legislators, council members, comedians, reporters, celebrities and other local leaders.

Each show is off the record to allow our guests the opportunity to be brutally honest.

At the door, tickets are only $20.00 per person/$35.00 per couple.

Discount tickets can be purchased for $15 per person/$25.00 per couple in advance at this online store: Politics with a Punch Tickets
