If you’re in New Orleans for the Essence Festival which starts today and runs through the weekend, take a detour from the musical performances and head over to the National Wake Up Tour. Comedians Paul Mooney and Dick Gregory are headlining spot performances around the country to bring both the laughs and the knowledge to their fans. After eight performances in Berkeley, California, where the tour kicked off, the duo is coming to the stage in New Orleans for two shows on Thursday, July 5.

The performances will benefit the New Orleans Dryades YMCA and both shows will be taped live for an upcoming Conscious DVD to be released later this summer.
