With glass pipes billowing pot smoke as they're passed around, and a room full of rowdy anxious stoners, and weed-comedy-lovers, Cheech and Chong delivered the goods at the Roxy in West Hollywood last Wednesday with a MySpace Secret Stand Up show. But they are also on tour.

They started with the bit now made famous as the first scene in their film Up in Smoke, and then proceeded to unravel two hours of all their classic bits, and a surprise opening by Chong's wife and co-star in several of the Cheech and Chong classics, Shelby Chong. They're much older than the Cheech and Chong you remember from the films, but no less funny.

The Roxy was very hospitable, and to that dude who sat behind me: Thanks for passing the pipe my way so many times, but then again... i was the one with the lighter.

This was a chance of a lifetime to see two living legends! Figure out a way to see Cheech and Chong Light Up America! Or keep your fingers crossed for the next MySpace Secret Stand Up show. And enjoy the photos.
