E! changed the schedule for some reason. They originally told us the air date was Feb 2nd, but their web site and TV Guide now say that a Red Foxx special will be aired that night. We'll let you know when we get another airdate from E!.

ChongStock 2000 Announced

We've received unofficial word that the Tommy Chong camp is organizing "ChongStock" 2000. It will take place May 19 - 21st in Riverside, CA. There will be Doobie Awards, celebs, bands, etc. We will provide more information as soon as they provide us with an official press release.

ALERT: E! Announces Cheech & Chong Air Date


It's finally been announced. E! Entertainment Television will premiere its Mysteries & Scandals "Cheech and Chong" on Wednesday, February 2nd, 2000 @ 8:30PM est. We're told the thirty minute episode will detail the rise and fall of Cheech and Chong, as well as the reasons why Cheech left the duo.
In addition, our sources tell us that Richard Marin and Thomas Chong were not initially willing to be interviewed. Each more or less said "I'll only do it, if he does it." We were told that one of the reasons for their lack of enthusiasm was that they were tired of explaining why they had split up.
However, many fans, including us at Cheech and Chong Dot Com, have never heard either one of them give a straight answer as to why they broke-up. The last time we saw them together was on December 13th, 1991 on the Howard Stern channal 9 show (Happy Birthday Howard!). They dressed as wise men and rolled joints. It was fairly obvious neither wanted to be there.
A certain degree of hostility seems to still exist between the duo as documented in this 1998 Tommy Chong interview in the Augusta Chronicle. The article seems to be more about Mrs. Chong, than Tommy.
As you'll see in the special, they both finally agreed to be interviewed, separately.
PS. We may have some more auctions to coincide with the premiere.

Clip of Cheech & Chong Special on Stern Tonight

Tonight's episode of the Howard Stern Show on E! Entertainment Television will feature a clip from the upcoming Cheech and Chong "Mysteries & Scandals" special. We will provide more details after it airs.
Update: Tonight's episode of the Howard Stern show featured guests Chuck Zito, gossip columnist and host of Mysteries and Scandals, AJ Benza, and Perfect 10 publisher, Norm Zeda. They decided to goof on AJ Benza by showing blooper footage from his show. One segment was from the upcoming special on Cheech and Chong. This is more or less what he said; "The duo of Cheech and Chong were on top-of-the-world, but then vanished into the darkness without a trace." Note: this is not an exact quote.
We still do not have an air date for this special, but will let you know as soon as we do.
