Cheech and Chong Reunion Tour
Cheech and Chong will make us all high on laughs once again, as their new comedy tour kicks off in Philadelphia on September 12, 2008. The perpetually stoned duo’s reunion tour – the “Light Up America” tour – will prove to stoners everywhere whether or not these two hippies still have the antics needed to win the attention away from recent comedic hits, including the White Castle fanatics Harold and Kumar. The tour comes after Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong put their differences to rest, as feuds between the two halted their partnership for a time. Now that the duo has settled their differences, the dope smokers are back on the road again. I wonder if they are still driving that incredible van made entirely of marijuana?
The duo was widely popular in the 70’s and 80’s for their dope humor, often portrayed in motion pictures as two stoners bumbling through the daily routine – and of course, getting high. Now, after 25 years apart, Cheech and Chong are making their way back to the stage, for another dose of that potent, low-brow comedy.
“I think it’s time for a revival of dope jokes. It’s a much bigger audience now, it’s much more widespread and institutionalized,” said Marin of the relevance of the duo’s new tour. You can bet that this tour is going to be the last of its kind, as both Marin and Chong realize that the “end is a lot closer than the beginning.” The “Light Up America” tour is sure to be a smash, and if anyone loved Cheech and Chong classics like “Up in Smoke” or “Still Smokin’” as much as I did, the shows are going to sell out faster than it would take Cheech or Chong to go one toke over the line.
