Comedy duo Cheech and Chong are on what they call their O Cannabis Tour, to celebrate the recent legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada. Cheech Marin is 73 and Tommy Chong is 81 now, and they’re still going strong with this all new show “featuring 50 years of stories, skits and songs.”

It’s their first ever cross-Canada tour, and the Calgary show takes place Friday at 8 p.m. at the Jubilee Auditorium.
