Cheech and Chong are widely known and still celebrated for their 1970s and 1980s cult classic films and stand-up routines largely based on the hippie, free-love era and their personal love for cannabis. In 2008 they launched the historic reunion tour entitled "Light Up America and Canada" followed up by 2010 and 2011's "Get it Legal Tour" and have confirmed production of a new animated film coming soon.
"I've never had so much fun making an app. 'The Fatty' is jam packed with everything a stoner could possibly need," said Dave Swartz, MEDL Mobile co-founder and chief creative officer. "We're bringing something unique, fun, and useful to loyal Cheech and Chong fans everywhere."

About Cheech and Chong
Successful beyond their wildest dreams, the iconic comedy duo Cheech and Chong defined an era with their hilariously irreverent, satirical, counter-culture, no-holds-barred comedy routines. Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong's phenomenal success began on the stand-up comedy circuit which led to nine hit comedy albums and eight hit films, breaking box office records, shattering comedy album sales, garnering multiple Grammy nominations and mesmerizing fans for more than a decade.
With nine albums released from 1972 through 1985, Cheech and Chong were nominated for four Grammy Awards, winning the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album with their third album, Los Cochinos, released in 1973. Big Bambu, their second album, was the biggest selling comedy record of all time in 1972 and remained so for many years. Their stunningly successful comedy streak transitioned to film in 1978 with their first movie, "Up In Smoke," the highest grossing comedy of 1978, topping $100 million at the box office. Cheech and Chong co-wrote and starred in a total of eight feature films together, all directed by Chong.
