The Goodnight Show with John Calhoun presents its July Season Two finale show, featuring the Soul Queen of New Orleans, Irma Thomas; the Big Easy Rollergirls; Deborah Cotton- publisher, writer, videographer, blogger covering New Orleans' street culture; and Team Slam New Orleans, that won the national poetry slam in both 2012 and 2013.
The Goodnight Show with John Calhoun is a late night talk show similar in format to The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. It is important because it puts a spotlight on New Orleans talent and culture while also giving a platform for activists, community heroes and others doing relevant work in New Orleans. The program provides a common ground for the many diverse elements of our community. Look for Season Three to open in October!
