The Red Shtick is the digital offspring (some might say “bastard child”) of Red Shtick Magazine, which served as the only print satirical publication in Louisiana’s capital city for 8½ years.
Red Shtick Magazine premiered in February 2004. In July 2012, it retired gracefully to make way for its digital descendant, The Red Shtick. Meanwhile, Red Shtick Magazine is currently living comfortably in South Florida where it’s not called nearly often enough by its children.
Like its progenitor, The Red Shtick likes to think of itself as a bold and engaging source of satire and irreverent humor. And while The Red Shtick is completely digital and subsequently limited only by the scope of the worldwide web, it – like its printed precursor – has a tendency to focus on happenings in Baton Rouge and the rest of South Louisiana.
The Red Shtick, whose mission is to provide the Baton Rouge area (and the rest of the digital world) a comical enema to cure political impaction and cultural constipation, is written by a collection of talented contributors representing various backgrounds: black, white, male, female, conservative, liberal, Christian, Buddhist, hell-bound atheist, and even Yankee.
