Syracuse New Times Interviews Cheech & Chong

The Syracuse New Times interviewed Cheech & Chong who were promoting their upcoming shows (January 3rd) at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino Showroom in Verona, New York. The publication did a very thorough job researching Cheech & Chong and had some great questions.

Some highlights...
When asked about smoking pot, Tommy replied "As soon as Cheech and I got back together again I stopped smoking, so I could remember what we used to do. I carried it over to this day. I haven’t smoked. I’m going to smoke at the end of the tour. I make these little signposts for myself. I’ll finish the tour, then I’m going to light up. I don’t need to smoke on the tour because everyone smokes for me."

When asked about if there are any future projects they'd like to do, Cheech replied "We’re going to start our own TV series."

It's a fantastic interview.

Lou Adler's Son, Cisco, Arrested After Bar Brawl


Cisco Adler, son of Cheech & Chong record and movie producer Lou Adler, was arrested Wednesday at the Hub in Fargo, North Dakota for simple assault.

After Adler's band Whitestarr completed their set, there was a disagreement over the band's bar tab. A fight broke out between the tour crew and the club's security. Cisco punched one of the security personnel.

He was released on $500 bail.

Some of you may remember Cisco from his VH1 reality show "The Rock Life."

Regarding the tour...
Cheech says "We wanted to go into smaller venues that would sell out and keep the ticket price manageable. It actually turned out to be prescient because of the economics now."

Regarding Barack Obama...
Chong says "More than anything, I wanted to make sure that Republican beast was dead. They'd taken me. I'd ignored their ass and I ended up doing nine months in jail because of their policies. I really wanted to stomp on the throat of that beast."

Updated: Cheech and Chong's Animated Movie To Be Produced By Indy Studio Big Vision Entertainment & Chambers Bros. Entertainment

Big Vision Entertainment, a leading independent licensee, producer and DVD label for special interest programming and Chambers Bros. Entertainment a television and animation production company, today announced an exclusive deal with music mogul Lou Adler, owner of Ode Records, for the animated movie rights to the classic Cheech and Chong library of recorded comedy content.

Cheech and Chong Smokin' Animated Movie
The exclusive worldwide production and distribution agreement includes all theatrical, television, home video and digital rights to create an animated movie based on the "pot culture" comics' most famous comedy bits. Eric & Branden Chambers are directing the animation. Project will be produced by Houston Curtis of Big Vision, along with Keith, Branden and Eric Chambers of Chambers Bros. Entertainment, who created the concept. In addition, Adler, Curtis and the Chambers Bros. will serve as executive producers. Project will be completely financed by Big Vision Entertainment.

"Big Vision is thrilled to be working with Lou Adler, the Chambers Brothers, and of course, Cheech and Chong," said Houston Curtis, Founder and CEO of Big Vision Entertainment. "While our expertise in both the television and home video space give us supreme confidence that Cheech and Chong's Smokin' Animated Movie will be a huge success in those markets, we are also excited about exploring the possibilities of a theatrical release."

Sales for DVD, digital and television will be handled through Big Vision's TV and home video arm, which currently has distribution for over 100 titles throughout the US and around the world.

"We feel that Cheech and Chong's special brand of comedy appeals to multiple generations," said Eric Chambers, partner of Chambers Bros. Entertainment. "By lending a unique animation style to these classic and timeless bits, we are able to transform the comedy into something fresh, exciting and even more hilarious than ever before."

"It's great to be doing a movie where Cheech and I never have to get out of bed or be on-camera," said Tommy Chong. "The fans have already shown us they love the material, and the animated bits play funnier by being able to see the character reactions. I highly suggest watching it while while smoking a big fattie!"

"During this age of feature animation everywhere, it's about time that we got animated because we've been doing animation without the animation for years" said Cheech Marin, "Whether you watch it smokin' a fattie or stone cold sober, it's just plain funny!"

Recording industry legend Lou Adler added, "With Cheech and Chong reunited and selling out venues worldwide, the timing couldn't be more perfect for this unique, one-of-a-kind animated feature."

Updates and info about the project will be available for fans and press at www.smokinanimation.com

Video: Tommy Chong is Young at Heart

HollywoodTV filmed Tommy and Shelby Chong out in Brentwood, CA. They asked him if he had any advice for OJ. "Don't go killing your wife."

Cheech & Chong Roast Helps TBS Set New Cable Record for Primetime

TBS is on track to set a new ad-supported cable record as it takes position as ad-supported cable’s #1 network in primetime delivery of adults 18-34, according to year-to-date numbers from Nielsen Media Research. In achieving this new record, TBS grew its delivery of the coveted young-adult demo by an astonishing 17% over 2007.

TBS’s success in 2008 has been due in large part to the network’s outstanding collection of both original and acquired sitcoms, including Tyler Perry’s HOUSE OF PAYNE, which ranks as ad-supported cable’s #1 sitcom of all time. The critically acclaimed original sitcoms MY BOYS and THE BILL ENGVALL SHOW enjoyed strong summer runs. And acquired series like The Office, My Name Is Earl and Family Guy rank as three of ad-supported cable’s most popular comedies among adults 18-49, with The Office and My Name Is Earl scoring significantly lower median ages than their telecasts on broadcast.

This year also marked TBS’s first outing as full presenter of THE COMEDY FESTIVAL in Las Vegas. The event featured numerous big-name headliners – from Jerry Seinfeld and Ellen DeGeneres to Jeff Dunham and Tracy Morgan. It also delivered several high-profile specials for TBS.

“This year, we have focused extensively on strengthening the TBS Very Funny brand with the best comedies on television and heavy involvement in major comedy events,” said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks. “As demonstrated by TBS’s record-setting performance, comedy truly is king when it comes to engaging young adult viewers.”

2008 Ratings Highlights for TBS:
Year to date, TBS ranks #1 with adults 18-34 in primetime, scoring 17% growth in the demo when compared to 2007.

· TBS showed growth across the board in primetime, with adults 18-49 up 11%, adults 25-54 up 9%, viewers up 9% and households up 8%. TBS also garnered growth across the board in total day.

· TBS’s primetime median age is currently 35, five years younger than prior to its re-branding as a comedy network in 2004.

Tyler Perry’s HOUSE OF PAYNE ranks as ad-supported cable’s #1 sitcom of all time among adults 18-49, viewers and households.

· This summer marked the second consecutive summer HOUSE OF PAYNE ranked as the #1 program on all of television among African-American adults 18-49. For the year overall, it ranks second only to American Idol as television’s most popular show among African-American adults 18-49.

The second season of TBS’s THE BILL ENGVALL SHOW ranked as ad-supported cable’s #1 show in its time period (Thursdays, 9 p.m. ET) among adults 18-49.

· For the season, THE BILL ENGVALL SHOW averaged 2.6 million viewers, 1.8 million households and 1.4 million adults 18-49.

TBS’s MY BOYS posted solid growth for its second season when compared to its summer 2007 performance, with viewers up 17% and households up 11%.

· For the season, MY BOYS averaged 1.5 million viewers, 1.2 million households and nearly 1 million adults 18-49.

TBS claims four of ad-supported cable’s top five comedies among adults 18-49, with The Office topping the chart.

· When airing on TBS, The Office delivers a median age of 28, which is nine years younger than the show’s airings on NBC. My Name Is Earl also gets a much younger audience, with the TBS median at 30, which is 14 years younger than the show on NBC.

TBS recently completed its first year as full presenter of THE COMEDY FESTIVAL in Las Vegas. Several specials from the three-day event scored strong numbers for TBS.

· ELLEN’S EVEN BIGGER REALLY BIG SHOW scored 2.3 million viewers, up 53% when compared to her show from last year’s edition of THE COMEDY FESTIVAL. In addition, the show delivered 1.2 million adults 18-49, up 57% vs. last year’s show.

· CHEECH & CHONG ROASTED served up a hefty 2.4 million viewers, TBS’s largest audience ever for a special from THE COMEDY FESTIVAL.

· Other specials from THE COMEDY FESTIVAL this year included FUNNIEST MOVIES OF THE YEAR: 2008, with 1.3 million viewers, and the late-night special LAFFAPALOOZA!, with 1.2 million viewers.

· Collectively, TBS’s specials from this year’s edition of THE COMEDY FESTIVAL outdelivered last year’s specials from the Las Vegas event by 20% among viewers and 29% among adults 18-49.

TBS scored cable’s most-watched Major League Baseball game in history (13.4 million viewers) with the network’s Oct. 19 coverage of game seven of the American League Championship Series. It also ranks as TBS’s biggest audience of all time.

· TBS’s coverage of the ALCS showed tremendous growth when compared to the network’s coverage last year of the NLCS, with viewers up 73%, households up 66%, adults 18-34 up 96% and adults 18-49 up 83%.

All claims are based on Live + 7 data when available. All other claims are based on Live + Same Day data.

Review: Cheech & Chong at Vancouver's Queen Elizabeth Theatre

"Chong was impressive playing the blues on his electric guitar as Blind Melon Chitlin" and "he had a great rapport with the crowd and an easy delivery."

The Weinstein Company Partnering With Cheech Marin And Tommy Chong On A New Concert Movie

As Tommy Chong mentioned when the tour began, The Weinstein Company will be releasing a DVD of the Cheech & Chong tour. It was originally stated that their Dallas, TX shows were going to be filmed for this project, but it will actually be filmed at their November 28th show at Copley Symphony Hall in San Diego, CA.

Here's the official press release.

NEW YORK, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Weinstein Company (TWC) have partnered with Cheech Marin, Tommy Chong, and their managers Ben Feigin and Josh Klein to produce a concert movie to memorialize the comic duo's reunion and first tour together in 25 years. The announcement was made today by Barry Gordon, executive vice president of home entertainment at TWC.

As part of the arrangement, TWC has worldwide theatrical, home video, digital and television rights. The feature-length program, which will portray a live concert experience of the "Cheech & Chong: Light Up America" tour, is expected to make a major TV premiere, followed by the DVD release. TWC International will handle foreign sales beginning at AFM this week.

"The Cheech and Chong Concert Movie" will be an historic, must-experience event for the many fans that grew up listening to their recordings and watching their movies," said Barry Gordon, EVP of Home Entertainment at TWC. "For the millions of new fans who have discovered Cheech and Chong over the years as cultural icons, this will be the first time many of them will be able to enjoy the artistry and one-of-kind magic that is Cheech and Chong live on stage. This is the comedy event of the decade."
"It's great to get a chance to cap a long career with a show of where we are now," said Marin.

Chong stated, "I really like Harvey because he picked up my dinner tab."

Start of production and official release dates are to be announced.

Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong's phenomenal success began on the stand-up comedy circuit and led to eight hit films and nine comedy albums, which garnered multiple Grammy nominations. The "Cheech & Chong: Light Up America" reunion tour officially kicked off on September 26, 2008 and has been selling out across the country. Many of the dates have needed to add multiple shows each night to meet demand. The tour will continue through 2009, and will bring the duo overseas to multiple continents.

Gordon and Eileen Rodriguez, director of acquisitions, negotiated on behalf of TWC. Ben Feigin of Anonymous Content, Josh Klein of The Group Management, Stan Coleman and Matthew Sugarman from the firm of Weissmann, Wolff, Bergman, Coleman, Grodin & Evall, and Josh Hiller negotiated on behalf of Marin and Chong. Feigin and Klein will executive produce the movie.

About The Weinstein Company
The Weinstein Company (TWC) was created by Bob and Harvey Weinstein, the brothers who founded Miramax Films Corporation in 1979. TWC is a multi-media company that officially launched on October 1, 2005. Dimension Films, the genre label that was founded in 1993 by Bob Weinstein, is also included under the TWC banner.

Review: Cheech & Chong Tour in Niagara Falls

John W checked out the Cheech & Chong: Light Up America tour a few days ago at the Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls.

He was kind enough to send us his review.

I just saw the boys at the Fallsview Casino on Nov 6. I got to wear my sweet new Cheech and Chong t-shirt thanks to cheechandchongfans.com. As this was my second time seeing them on the reunion tour (the 1'st being Toronto Sept 6), I pretty much knew what to expect and Cheech and Chong didn't disappoint us.

Shelby Chong opened the show. Her routine hasn't changed much since the start of the tour, but she was still damn funny and got things started nicely with her sex, drugs and Cheech and Chong jokes.

Cheech wanders across the stage looking good and a little more trimmer then the last show I saw and we're off into Up In Smoke. The Led Zeppelin joint, now updated with some ky jelly is a CLASSIC!! From there we're off into Mexican in Space, Let's Make A Dope Deal, Bob and Margaret, Blind Melon, Red and Earache My eye with Alice Bowie, Ralph and Herbie, Old Man In The Park and the great sing-along of Born In East LA with a little Beaners mixed in and the finale of the Up In Smoke theme song.

Tommy Chong is a great stand-up comic and cuts a mean blues riff too!! He's changed up his routines that he does in between the skits and they are as funny as hell.

The chemistry between Cheech and Chong is as strong as ever. They look like their having a lot of fun on stage.

I've gotta say though, the venue and the audience were pretty lame. The audience looked to be split into the die hard fans and the gambling fans!! A casino is not a great place for this show as Tommy even mentioned they were not allowed to sell any merchandise and no drinks allowed...wtf?? Not a whiff of sweet bud in the air!!, thank god we got good and buzzed before the show.

Overall it was great to see the comedy legends once again.

Night on the Town in NYC with Cheech and Bride-To-Be

Cheech, Tommy, pianist Natasha Rubin (Cheech's fiance) and Shelby Chong (Tommy's wife) are in New York City this week doing press for the Cheech & Chong: Light Up America tour. You may have heard the great interview Howard Stern did with Cheech, Tommy and Natasha on Monday. Cheech and Natasha announced they are getting married in August.

Howard and the rest of the Stern staff are huge fans. Richard Christy was wearing the Bong shirt we sent him a few months back.

They were also on Opie and Anthony. The interview went well and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. This is in contrast to the interview they did with Tommy in 2006 when he was promoting his first book, The I Chong).

Last night, Cheech and Natasha ate dinner at the Per Se restaurant in Manhattan. It has the same chef as the French Laundry in Napa Valley, and one of only 4 top rated Michelin guide restaurants in New York.

According to Natasha, "they gave us a royal treatment with a 13 course dinner (their usual is 7-9), crowned by a specially created (in honor of Cheech) Rice Dreams dessert, cinnamon-smoke-infused rice sorbet."

The Cheech & Chong tour comes to Westbury, NY this Thursday and Friday. The shows are sold out, but keep checking because there's always the chance seats will be released at the last minute.

Tommy Chong Comments on Edie Adams' Passing

"When I learned of Edie Adams passing today, I felt a wave of sadness come over me, as I remembered how brilliant she was as my mother in Up In Smoke. I remembered how we visited between takes listening to her stories about her late husband Ernie Kovac who was one of the top comedians of his day.

When you look at the scene in Up In Smoke when she is arguing with my movie dad, the great Struthers Martin, you have to be amazed at the star power that was driving that scene. "When boy when are you going to get a job"? Struthers Martin wrote his entire monologue, as did Edie. Cheech and I told them the scene and how it fit into the movie, but when it came to delivering the adlib lines both Struthers and Edie shone like the stars they were.

Edie was at the end of her career when she played my mother, but you would never know it watching her perform. I am in the process of obtaining every movie and every television show I can find that featured Edie Adams because I don't want her to ever go away. She will always live in my heart.....tc"

Mary Beth Strikes Again...Hide Your Fake Penises

US Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan is going after the "Whizzinator." You heard me...she's going after the manufacturers of a fake penis which helps people fool the drug testers.

"Undercover federal agents bought a Whizzinator, four heat pads, a vial of dehydrated urine and a syringe from the defendants in 2006 and 2007, each time at a cost of $157.50, the complaints state. " Plus, she's trying to seize their bank accounts.

This is the same Mary Beth Buchanan that wrongfully sent Tommy Chong to prison for nine months for conspiracy to send bongs in the mail.

This is the same Mary Beth Buchanan that raided Spectrum Labs and confiscated a/k/a Tommy Chong DVDs.

How classic is that? Your tax dollars at work.

Bring Cans of Food to the Westbury, NY Show

The Capital One Bank Theatre at Westbury has teamed up with rock CAN roll to 'beat hunger'. rCr volunteers are on site at all concerts, accepting food donations that are immediately distributed to local emergency food agencies and into the hands of men, women and children who live with hunger and in poverty.

Cheech & Chong 'FANS BRING CANS' or any healthy and nutritious non-perishable food donation to their concerts on Oct 23 and 24 in Westbury, NY.

rock CAN roll is a great way to empower people attending the shows to do something as simple as bringing 1 box of cereal, a can of tuna, or juice for example - to help children and their families who don't always have food to eat.

The Wire Interviews Cheech & Chong

The Wire had a chance to interview Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong via phone. Both were in Florida for their tour. Cheech was staying at the Ritz-Carlton under the assumed name Dick Gozinya.

Cheech says that he and Tommy are getting along. When Cheech was asked about marijuana, he says "I think it should be legal. I think it’s ridiculous that it’s not. I think that if they legalized marijuana tomorrow, it would do more for the economy than ten $700 billion bailouts.”

When asked about Arnold Schwarzenegger finally admitting he smoked pot with Tommy, Tommy says “I love the fact that he admits it. He fessed up to it. I tell people all the time, Arnold probably knows more about the human body than most doctors, and he would never put anything in his body that would harm himself.”

It's a really great interview.

Found: The Ice Cream Truck from Nice Dreams

For a very long time, we've wondered where the ice cream truck from Cheech & Chong's Nice Dreams vanished to. Well, it's been found.

Tim Petty of Ocala, Florida purchased the 1950 Chevrolet Good Humor Ice Cream Truck from "a company in St. Louis that specializes in vehicles for movies." The wheels and dashboard had been painted white for the film. It needed major restorations.

Cheech & Chong May Tour Outside the U.S.

Billboard Magazine interviewed Cheech Marin about the tour and the future of Cheech & Chong. He says "We're getting offers to tour other places outside of (the U.S.), so we might take a look at that. We're taking a look at all the options."

They may also do a movie. "We're talking about it. If one comes up and we can agree on what to do, how to work, then why not?"

"There was always a great love between us. We had a lot of respect and admiration for each other. I think egos got in the way. Now we both realized we (each) had half a treasure map, but we're not gonna be able to get the treasure unless we put the two halves of the map together again."

Cheech & Chong: Light Up America Tour Kicks Off In Philly


Beaners! Beaners! Sorry, I can't get that song out of my head.

On Friday night, the Cheech & Chong: Light Up America tour kicked off at the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby, PA (just outside Philadelphia). It was one of the greatest experiences of my life. It was my lifelong dream to see Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong perform live and I was glad to have played a part in getting them to reunite.

The show begins with a brilliantly produced video showing the history of Cheech & Chong. It features a stoner rolling a joint and lighting up while old photos of Cheech & Chong are shown. It's really cool and funny and the Big Green Van theme from Up In Smoke plays in the background. Whomever created this should win an award.

Shelby Chong (Tommy's wife) was the opener. She performed for twenty plus minutes. Her set was solid. Most of the jokes were new, others you may have heard if you had seen her and Tommy's stand-up act. All the jokes were funny and she was dressed-to-kill.

Then, Cheech & Chong came out and performed some of their greatest hits, as well as new bits. They did minor rewrites to some of their bits to make them fresher. Tommy provided a nice segway between bits by telling jokes from his stand-up act, as well as providing some history on the bit they were about to perform.

We don't want to give away too much, but they did perform Old Man In The Park which is only available on their 2 CD Anthology.

For the encore, Cheech & Chong performed a few songs and had a sing-a-long. Shelby Chong came out to dance the salsa with Tommy during one of the songs.

After the show, I hung out with Cheech, Tommy, Shelby and their awesome tour manager, Jimmy. They met fans, friends and a radio station contest winner during this meet and greet. Steve Bloom, from High Times and author of the book Pot Culture, was also there.


Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong are comic geniuses. They have unbelievable chemistry on stage. They didn't disappoint. They were both having a lot of fun out there. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. If there are any tickets left at a venue even remotely near you, make sure you go. Also, pick up the VIP Upgrade package when it becomes available for the show you are attending (click pre-sale link above). It's reasonably priced being you get a goodie bag with nice stuff in it (beanie, rolling papers and more).
