Cheech & Chong: Still smokin'?
Who’s ready for more Cheech & Chong (pictured)? Given that pop culture is currently busy inhaling the fumes from Pineapple Express, Harold & Kumar, Weeds, et al, it seems the time is ripe for a reunion tour for the original stoner comics. Aside from a joint appearance (sorry) at the Aspen Comedy Fest in 2005 and a plan for a new movie that went up in smoke (sorry again) after Chong’s bong bust in 2003, the two buds (d’oh!) haven’t been able to muster up a reunion plan for nearly 25 years, but now, Live Nation says it’s booked the pair on their own stand-up tour, dubbed, “Hey, What’s That Smell?”
But does anyone still want to see these two again in 2008? Will they have new material or just greatest hits (heh, heh)? Me, I used to think their stuff was hilarious — when I was 14. Now, I’m not so sure I’d want to see them hash it out (damn, it’s hard not to pun with this story) one more time. Who among you, PopWatchers, wants another trip in the van with these senior stoners?
