Cheech and Chong at Agua Caliente Casino
Cheech & Chong bring their 2018 tour to the Show at Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa.
Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong helped define an era with their hilariously irreverent satirical counter-culture no-holds-barred comedy routines. Their phenomenal success includes nine comedy albums and eight films. Celebrating its 40th anniversary, their debut movie “Up In Smoke” in 1978 defined a new genre of movies—the stoner comedy. To this day, the movie still ranks as one of the top weekend film rentals.
Legendary producer Lou Adler discovered and signed Cheech & Chong to his Ode Records label, following their appearance at the famed Troubadour nightclub in Hollywood. Their first album “Cheech & Chong” was released in 1971, followed by “Big Bambu” in 1972, which became one of the all-time best-selling comedy albums. Some of their hit songs and comedy bits included “Dave’s Not Here,” “Santa Claus & His Old Lady,” “Sister Mary Elephant (SHUDD UP!),” “Earache My Eye” featuring Alice Bowie, “Bloat On” featuring The Bloaters, “Up In Smoke,” “Basketball Jones” and Cheech’s solo hit “Born In East L.A.”
