Biography

Cheech & Chong are a comedy duo consisting of Richard Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, who found a wide audience in the 1970s and 1980s for their stand-up routines, which were based upon the era’s hippie, free love and (especially) drug culture movements. Cheech played a cholo from Los Angeles, while Chong was a burnt-out “druggie” whose entire life revolved around getting high.

The duo released a number of successful comedy albums, and starred in a series of low-budget films, becoming one of the most successful comedy teams of all time. Their best-known comedy routines include “Earache My Eye,” “Basketball Jones,” “Santa Claus and His Old Lady,” and “Sister Mary Elephant.” Perhaps their all-time most famous line is “Dave’s not here, man” (from their self-titled debut album). The two were close. Chong stated that Cheech was “closer than a wife. The only thing we didn’t do was have sex.”

The duo separated in the 1980s due to creative differences. Cheech Marin has separated himself from the pair’s drug-addled act by working on a solo career, finding success in a one-hit wonder song entitled “Born In East L.A.” (based on Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.”). He did character voices for several animated feature films, including Disney’s Oliver and Company (1988) and The Lion King (1994), as well as starring in various comedy films including Shrimp on the Barbie, as a lead in the CBS television series Nash Bridges and a recurring guest role on Judging Amy.
