C-O-N-S-C-I-O-U-S: The National Wake Up Tour marches onward to the W Hotel New Orleans as it combines the forces of two legends known equally for their comic skills and unflinching social commentary. Fabled writer, Grammy-nominated comedian, and actor Paul Mooney pulls no punches as he puts history and the upcoming presidential election in his sharpened, sardonic sights. Drawn from a career with beginnings as a circus ringmaster and leading to years of notoriety as a comedy writer, Mooney’s words have filled the mouths of Richard Pryor, Redd Foxx, and the cast of In Living Color. He is best known to modern audiences for his blistering work on Chappelle’s Show, his standup act skewering tender subjects like an accident-prone luau master while drawing on a deep and heartfelt sense of history.

As a self-described “drum major for justice and equality,” Dick Gregory found himself at the forefront of the civil-rights movement in the 1960s, during which he participated in countless protests and even ran for president. His career has been a unique blend of political activism and controversial yet insightful anecdotes. Hugh Hefner admired these courageous observations and jump-started Gregory into mainstream territory by having him perform at the Chicago Playboy Club in 1961. More than 50 years later, Gregory continues to regale audiences with an act more entertaining and educational than a college professor wearing a bear suit.
