Cheech & Chong "light up" for new comedy tour
Wed Jul 30, 2008 7:04pm
By Alex Dobuzinskis

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Two of the most famous pot smokers of the 1970s, Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, unveiled plans on Wednesday for their first comedy tour in more than 25 years following their acrimonious split.

"Cheech & Chong: Light Up America ..." will hit 22 cities in the United States starting with Philadelphia on September 12 and ending in Denver, Colorado, on December 20. In between they will play Los Angeles, Miami, Washington, D.C. and other places.

"This is a moment that I've been looking forward to for many, many years because we have such a legacy and history together that we couldn't escape it, even if we tried," Chong told reporters at a news conference to announce the tour.

Cheech and Chong were one of the most successful comedy teams of the 1970s with hit movies and chart-topping records based on their brand of marijuana-influenced humor.

They were potheads who appealed to a youth generation steeped in personal freedom spawned by 1960s-era hippies.

Marin said their humor about doing stupid things while being stoned on marijuana should still appeal to today's youth, as well as Cheech & Chong's older fans.

"We've had the younger audience all along. Every time they get to that certain age, they go through that Cheech & Chong period of watching the movies, listening to the records. So, it's almost like a rite of passage," Marin said.

The comedy duo said the tour will be theatrical and will rely on the sizable budget that Live Nation -- the company behind the tour -- can muster. When they toured early in their careers, the duo's props were a bag of used clothes, but the new tour will have large video screens to flash images on.

As they discussed the tour, Cheech and Chong relied on some props in the form of synthetic marijuana plants to win some laughs, as Chong "watered" the plants with bottled water.

Marin, 62, and Chong, 70, spoke about the tour to reporters at the Troubadour, a fixture on the Southern California club scene. Marin said as budding comedians, he and Chong waited in line outside the club for hours for the chance to perform.

Cheech and Chong gained notoriety in nightclubs in the Los Angeles area in the 1970s and released their first album, "Cheech and Chong," in 1971. "Los Cochinos" in 1973 won the Grammy award that year for best comedy album.

In 1978 their first movie, "Up in Smoke," proved to be a blockbuster, raking in more than $100 million at box offices.

They performed together onstage for the last time in 1981, but continued to make movies and records.

The pair split following the 1985 release of their album "Get Out of My Room." Chong said that their break-up -- which was well-publicized and bitter -- was caused by success.

"What happens if you don't have big problems, like trying to make it -- when that's cured when you've made it -- then your little problems become your big problems," he said. "So you start fighting over stupid things."

Marin carved out a career as a television actor in shows such as "Nash Bridges" and "Judging Amy." Chong also did a lot of TV work, including appearances on "That '70s Show."

Chong has long advocated the legalization of marijuana, and in 2003 was arrested and later imprisoned for selling drug paraphernalia.

This woman I am FORCED to work with is causing me to become more and more angry in each passing moment. She HATES the earth . She argues with me when she is WRONG ( see my rant here ). And each time she grabs work that comes in before anyone else can grab it, it just adds to my anger. If I say anything, it will just cause more problems, and I don't know if I should even bring it up to my manager. I HATE bitches like this! YOU DO NOT RULE THE WORKROOM! YOU ARE NOT GOD!

When you dance, the whole world dances with you.

mamagaea: (Wow)
by Chuck Lorre

To let go of the fear and anger wich imprisons my heart.
To relinquish all childish expectations and live joyfully in the world as it is--
not as I wish or imagine it to be.
To be free of the always craven and ever-craving ego.
To be released from the endless hungers of the body.
To see God in others.
To see God in everything.
To die without death and merge my consciousness into the cosmic sea of bliss from which I came.
To crank out two sitcoms a week that can compete with a deaf chick dancing her ass off...
This is my soul's journey.

mamagaea: (emails!)
I am interested in using iChat more rather than limiting myself to Yahoo. So I would like to collect all of my friend's IM accounts. I can chat with people who have AIM, Google Talk, Jabber, .Mac, Yahoo IM, iChat and Skype. Will you send me your account names so I can say hi? Oh, and if you don't have Skype, you totally should. You can talk Skype to Skype for free with video. :D

All comments will be screened so no one can harvest any of the screennames.

Finally finished the database I had to set up to process my surveys for my Psych of Spiritual Dev class. It took FOR-EV-ER. I'm hoping I don't have to tweak anything regarding missing data. I really don't want to have to go through the close to 200 questions again. (once you add in all the questions that had multiple answers, it added up to about that, I am betting).

Now I have to compile all my surveys. I may kill some trees to make it easier for me to data input, but I really don't want to have to do that. I'll try it out with just looking at my laptop. I'll be here all night tomorrow. snore.

So, Dr. Horrible has gone away. BUT, I joined [ profile] dr_horriblesing and I have been getting SO MANY icons out of it, made a new friend, HI [ profile] switch842! and am working on making my LJ layout all Dr. Horrible, who has a PhD in HORRIBLENESS!


((shoulder shimmy))

Switch made the most awesome header image for me. You'll have to wait until I get the theme set up to see it. I found a Mood Theme too! :D Now I just have to figure out where to host all the mood images. I don't think Flickr will work too well. I may have to break down and get photobucket. I downloaded the plug-in for iPhoto so I can upload to the LJ scrapbook in batches, but it didn't seem to work. I think it is because the plug-in is for iPhoto 6 and I have iPhoto 7. shrug. I'm so excited. I can finally have the pop-culture theme of my dreams! :D

Other than that I am struggling in school. Only because I have no motivation right now. My friends on Tribe saw what I went through recently, and that always saps my energy and motivation. I spent all weekend on mah butt watching TV or on the Internet. Dr. Horrible was pretty much the only highlight. When I get down, it's always so hard to get going again. Hopefully it will pass soon.

I'm at school right now. After I finish this post I have to work on homework and do a buttload of data entry for a paper I'm doing. I usually do better when I'm not at home. Wish me luck.

My favorite parts

Act I - small but just makes me love it even more. The little shoulder shimmy Dr. Horrible does in the first song

Act II - Dr. Horrible's song after Captain Hammer says "my hammer is my penis".

Why does Dr. Horrible have Edith Ann's chair?

Act III - all of Dr. Horrible's parts. His singing makes me ache inside. Joss Whedon is a God.

p.s. Does anyone have any Dr. Horrible icons?
