State politicians mocked, satirized this weekend
BATON ROUGE - When all else fails, at least you can get a laugh at state politics.
The Baton Rouge Gridiron Show is this weekend. The entire performance is a political satire, and the actors and actresses are local television and newspaper reporters. Audience members can watch them mock and poke fun at Louisiana leaders.
No one enjoys the show more than the politicians themselves.
"The people we make fun of are always in attendance," Meg Casper explained Friday morning on 2une In. The governor shows up, his staff shows up, other elected officials come, and they always say they enjoy it. At the end of the day, if you can't laugh at yourself, sometimes you cry. This is an opportunity for all of us to get together and laugh about what our state is going through."
The Gridiron Show is Friday and Saturday night at the American Legion on Wooddale Boulevard. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are sold out for Friday, but are still available for $25 for Saturday's show. Tickets be purchased at the door or by sending en email to firstname.lastname@example.org
