About the Artists
Richard Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong
first started their comedy career together in 1971 and had an immediate impact on both the comedy world and pop culture as
a whole. Much of their humor revolved around the hippie and drug culture with a big focus on marijuana use. The duo began
by releasing comedy albums which became stoner comedy classics and had millions of fans listening to and memorizing classic
bits like Dave's Not Here, Sister Mary Elephant, Earache My Eye, and others. After their meteoric rise to fame Cheech and
Chong began to receive offers to start making films. In 1978 they released their first comedy movie Up in Smoke which became
an instant classic that is still beloved more than thirty five years later. Two years later they released their follow up
Cheech and Chong's Next Movie, followed the next year by 1981's Nice Dreams. The early Eighties was the most prolific time
in the history of Cheech and Chong as they also released Things Are Tough All Over in 1982 and Still Smokin' in 1983. In 1984
they attempted to move away from being pigeonholed as stoner comics and made Cheech and Chong's The Corsican Brothers which
was their least successful movie to date. In 1985 they went back to releasing albums with Get Out of My Room which contained
the hit song Born in East L.A. which was a parody of the Bruce Springsteen smash Born in the USA. Soon after they separated
as Cheech decided to focus on a solo acting career. After years of an icy relationship the two began working together again
in the late Nineties, appearing together on an episode of Nash Bridges and doing voice overs for an episode of South Park.
In 2008 the duo made a full reunion and began a comedy tour, and they continue working together to this day.
and Chong were instant hits in the comedy world after releasing their self titled debut comedy album which featured their
classic Dave's Not Here skit. More albums would follow with increasing sales as they became the face of counter culture comedy.
While they were hits among people who listened to comedy records it was not until the release of their 1980 movie Up in Smoke
that the mainstream stared to really take notice. The movie moved the comedy team beyond cult status and remains a comedy
classic to this day.
Whether you have been along for the ride with Cheech and Chong since
the early Seventies or have recently discovered their comedy, you are sure to enjoy a Cheech and Chong performance. Littered
with classic bits interspersed with some new ones, their live show never fails to get the crowd going. From the second the
duo take the stage until the final standing ovation the crowd is filled with energy and loud guffaws as the two legendary
comics deliver the goods all night long. Maybe you have been waiting for decades for this night to come, and finally when
it arrives the experience surpasses any expectations.
August 11, 1972 was declared Cheech and Chong
Day in San Antonio, Texas by then mayor John Gatti. Tommy Chong was sentenced to nine months in jail in 2003 after his company
Chong's Glass was raided by federal agents in a crackdown on drug paraphernalia suppliers. This arrest put an initial reunion
on hold, but the two finally got their reunion back in full swing in 2008. That year they released a video on Funny or Die
titled Get out and Vote, which was released the day after the elections.
