Why See Cheech & Chong?
THE ORIGINAL STONERS RETURN
Richard 'Cheech' Marin and Tommy Chong are on tour again with their very special brand of humor - be ready ready for a great night of entertainment. The Grammy Award winning comedy duo are joined on select tour nights by friends WAR and Tower of Power.
Cheech and Chong first embarked on their comedy career in the 1970s, with their comedy revolving largely around counter-culture and drug references, and are commonly recognised as the "Stoners' Comedians". They released several comedy albums as well as feature films before parting ways in the late 1980s to work on their own solo careers; Cheech Marin went on to voice the character of Banzai the dastardly hyena in Disney's The Lion King, and is a frequent collaborator with director Robert Rodriguez, and has appeared in seven of his films to date. It wasn't until 2008 that the 'Cheech & Chong' flame was reingnited with a reunion tour, their first tour in 25 years, which sold out from coast to coast.
The Up in Smoke Tour sees the waxky duo joined by the "original street band" WAR, combining skits with comedy songs including "Earache My Eye," "Basketball Jones" and “Mexican Americans", backed up by WAR in the background. Critics describe this live collaboration as "a genius night of music and comedy".
