At the risk of making an obvious pun, Cheech & Chong are still flying high.
The duo of Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong first gained a devoted following among the counterculture for their irreverent stoner humor. A string of successful albums and movies kept them in the spotlight in the 1970s and 1980s.
Following a break-up in the 1980s, the two pursued different paths that would periodically intersect. Chong made a guest appearance on the TV series “Nash Bridges” on which Marin was a regular. Both voiced characters on an episode of “The Simpsons.”
Since 2008, Cheech & Chong have done a series of reunion concerts. Their current tour will take them to the Mayo Performing Arts Center on Thursday, April 19.
Mayo Performing Arts Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, presents a wide range of programs that entertain, enrich, and educate the diverse population of the region and enhance the economic vitality of Northern New Jersey.
