    with your New England accent

    a. I can't get over you with your New England accent.
    b. I can't get over you, with your New England accent.


    What does 'with' mean in these sentences?
    Is the comma necessary?

    Many thanks.

    It is the way the person speaks. I see no reason for the comma, but can live with it.
