Time to light up with some stoner friends Cheech & Chong at the Saban Theatre
August 11, 2022
On August 13 at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, get ready for a special, and intimate Q & A session with two of the world’s favorite comedians: Cheech & Chong.
One half of the stoner-hippie comedic duo, Richard “Cheech” Marin has become perhaps one of the most well-known and respected Chicano achievers in the world of entertainment. As an actor, director, writer, musician, art collector and humanitarian, Cheech is more than just a comedian who has made people laugh hysterically since the late ‘70s. At the side of his partner Tommy Chong, he enjoyed immense off-color comedic success before moving into a diverse range of roles, having appeared in more than 20 films, including Spy Kids, Tin Cup, and Once Upon A Time In Mexico. His television credits include co-starring with Don Johnson in the popular CBS drama, Nash Bridges, a recurring role on the hit series Lost, and a guest appearance on Grey’s Anatomy.
Grammy Award-winning comedian Tommy Chong is legendary for his invaluable contribution to American counter-culture as a member of the famous duo.
During their reign, the twosome recorded six gold comedy albums, including the 1973 Grammy-winner “Los Cochinos,” and starred in eight films, most of which Chong co-wrote and directed. The first, Up In Smoke, was the highest grossing comedy of 1978, topping $100 million at the box office.
Chong has also appeared in some extracurricular films, including 1990’s “Far Out, Man!” He recently released his new book entitled Cheech and Chong: The Unauthorized Autobiography about the exploits of the infamous duo’s smoke-filled world. This book serves as a follow-up to his New York Times Best-Seller The I Chong: Meditations from the Joint which chronicles Chong’s arrest for shipping bongs across country as well as his days in jail and the humorous encounters of his nine month prison stint. Earlier this year, the highly anticipated, award-winning documentary A/K/A Tommy Chong was released worldwide.
The evening will be moderated by Peter Tilden
