Cheech and Chong Are Chummy Again
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. The feud is over. Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong have announced their first comedy tour in more than 25 years, reviving dope jokes from the '70s. Marin said they did ponder the tour's name.
Mr. CHEECH MARIN (Comedian): We were going to call it "Catch Them Before They Croak," but we've decided to be all-embracive of the whole country and name this tour "Cheech and Chong Light Up America."
MONTAGNE: The pair starred in eight films, mostly as stoners stumbling through life. It's MORNING EDITION.
