It’s fitting that comedy duo Cheech & Chong will bring their irreverent, satirical, counter-culture, no-holds-barred comedy routine to the Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
The duo will perform on Dec. 30 and be joined by funk band War. Tickets start at $25 and go on sale Nov. 21.
Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong’s phenomenal success began on the stand-up comedy circuit, which led to nine hit comedy albums and eight hit films, breaking box office records, shattering comedy album sales, garnering multiple Grammy nominations and mesmerizing fans for more than a decade.
With nine albums released from 1972 through 1985, Cheech & Chong were nominated for four Grammy Awards, winning the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album with their third album, “Los Cochinos,” released in 1973. “Big Bambu,” their second album, was the biggest selling comedy record of all time in 1972 and remained so for many years.
Their successful comedy streak transitioned to film in 1978 with their first movie, “Up in Smoke,” the highest grossing comedy of 1978, topping $100 million at the box office. Cheech & Chong co-wrote and starred in a total of eight feature films together, all directed by Chong.
War’s long-hailed musical virtuosity and influences, which include, jazz, rock, funk, soul, R&B and Latin, have impacted their fans, as well as other musicians, regardless of race, generation or genre. Founding member Lonnie Jordan states this is one “War” that has truly brought people together for peace, love and harmony.
The band is known for the hit songs “Low Rider,” “Spill the Wine,” Why Can’t We Be Friends?” and “The Cisco Kid.”
