Cheech and Chong to light up Fallsview Casino

    Reunited comedy duo bring their Light Up Canada tour to Niagara for one
    night only Nov. 6

    NIAGARA FALLS, ON, Sept. 8 /CNW/ - Fallsview Casino Resort announced
today that Cheech and Chong - one of the most popular comedy duos of the 1970s
and 1980s - will bring their Light Up Canada tour to Fallsview as part of the
resort's autumn line-up.
    The reunited Richard "Cheech" Marin and Tommy Chong will perform one show
only in Fallsview's Avalon Theatre on Thursday, November 6, beginning at
    L.A. native Marin and Edmonton's Tommy Chong met at a former Vancouver
topless bar that Chong had turned into a comedy club. The duo hit it off and
took their marijuana-themed act on the road, where they were discovered in
1970 by a record-company executive. They released nine comedy albums in the
'70s and '80s, winning a Grammy for their 1973 album Los Cochinos. They also
made 10 movies between 1978 and 1985, including Up In Smoke (1978),
Yellowbeard (1983) and Cheech and Chong's The Corsican Brothers (1984). Their
box office popularity ranks them among the most successful comedy duos in the
history of the movie business.
    Marin and Chong went their separate ways in the mid-1980s. Marin has
since voiced characters for several animated Disney films and has appeared as
a regular on several TV series, including Nash Bridges and Judging Amy. Chong
is best-known to a new generation of fans as the lovable burnout Leo on That
'70s Show.
