Thinking about coming through New Orleans to do some comedy? Hell yeah! It's always a good time here. In fact, there's so much to do here that we put together a list of the places us locals like to go and places we like to tell visitors to go check out. Also, please, try to find someone to stay with here. Most of us have space to put up a couple comics. Please do not use AirBNB in New Orleans. It's a long story, but basically, it's killing the ability for anyone to afford housing and is ruining our neighborhoods. We'll find you a couch or a bed or an air mattress that won't fuck up our economy.

Bayou St. John is the only bayou in the city limits. It runs through the Lake Vista, Filmore, Fairgrounds, and MidCity neighborhoods. Great place to have a picnic or just relax. You can also rent a kayak or a paddle board and go out on the bayou itself.
Art market featuring local artists of all kinds. Opens at 7pm, so stop by before or after Crescent Fresh open mic on Thursdays or Comedy Fuck Yeah on Fridays, both at the Dragon's Den a couple blocks away.
This place is weird and interesting. It's got a bunch of old medical equipment and explainations of old shcool medicine. You can walk through yourself or there's a guided tour at 1pm. Benjamin didn't specifically recommend being high here, but it'd probably be tight. Admission: $5. Hours: Tues - Sat, 10am - 4pm. No guided tour Saturdays.
The sculptures here are pretty great, and the park itself is beautiful. It's a nice leasurely walk type of place. Benjamin Hoffman recommends being high for this. Admission: FREE. Summer Hours: (April 1 – September 30) 10 am – 6 pm, Winter Hours: (October 1 – March 31) 10 am – 5 pm
