Standup comedians typically draw from real life, such as bad relationships or how the zoo is crazy. Life's a riot with this GrouponLive deal to see Cheech and Chong at the Rialto Square Theatre in Joliet. For $30, you get one G-Pass for reserved balcony seating on Saturday, October 27, at 8 p.m. (up to a $60.85 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7 p.m.
Iconic comedy duo Cheech and Chong engulf audiences in noncarcinogenic giggles on their first 2012 tour. After nine hit albums, eight hit movies, and the suspicion of countless K-9 units, counter-culture connoisseurs Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong return to mix new bits with classic routines such as “Where’s Dave” and “Let’s Make a Dope Deal.” Due to the intrinsic nature of their most ballyhooed hobby, every show is subject to surprises, which sometimes include fan-favorite musical numbers such as “Basketball Jones” or Cheech donning his pink tutu for the Up in Smoke acid-rock jam “Earache My Eye.”
Rialto Square Theatre
Designed to mimic the French palace of Versailles, Rialto Square Theatre's magnificent interior awes showgoers with its gilded opulence. In the regal inner lobby, a 20-foot, 250-light chandelier—dubbed The Duchess—illuminates a circular series of delicate reliefs that depict allegories of man triumphing through labor and scenes from Greek mythology. A scaled-down replica of Paris's Arc de Triomphe leads from the lobby to the rotunda, adding to the space's grandeur and commemorating miniature Napoleon's victory at the adorable Battle of miniature Austerlitz.
