Hollywood, Fla. – Comedy and charity will take center stage as Broward House presents Cheech & Chong, a special benefit performance, at Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Sunday, December 15, 2013 at 7 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, November 8 at 10 a.m. One-hundred percent of the proceeds of ticket sales will benefit Broward House, South Florida’s oldest and largest HIV/AIDS community service organization.
“Broward House has made a promise to the South Florida community to never turn anyone away from our doors who needs our help no matter what their financial situation,” said Terry DeCarlo, Director of Development, Fundraising & Public Relations at Broward House. “With cuts in government grants, funding this becomes harder, daily. Events such as this give us the ability to keep this promise and make sure no one goes without food, medicine, medical care, and a roof over their head”
At the world famous Troubadour in Los Angeles where they were initially discovered, Cheech & Chong recently announced their first tour in over 25 years.
Successful beyond their wildest dreams, the iconic comedy duo Cheech & Chong defined an era with their hilariously irreverent, satirical, counter-culture, no-holds-barred comedy routines. 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 those 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 stunningly 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.
