Opening Night For Marijuana-Logues

Tonight marked Tommy Chong's New York Marijuana-Logues debut. See for ticket information.

This is the first time we've seen this show. It's funny, not just a little funny, but a lot funny. The Actor's Playhouse is a small venue so every seat is a good seat. Essentially, it's a parody of the Vaginia-Logues. Three stoners, on stage at the same time, read their journals. The show is constantly evolving. The performers add new jokes daily and often improv.
Tommy was fantastic. He doesn't have the entire script memorized yet and one or two of the jokes written by the other performers didn't flow well. This worked to the show's benefit. When Tommy was tripped up, he would leave the script and throw in his own jokes. His jokes brought the biggest laughs. He and the other performers often threw in references to Tommy's arrest. We, the audience and the other performers constantly laughed out loud.

Tommy will only be with the New York Marijuana-Logues til December 19th. Then, the show heads to the West coast. If you're in the area, do not miss this opportunity to see it.
We had a chance to speak with Tommy Chong after the show.

He revealed that the director, Larry Charles, left the reunion movie project to work on a television series. New Line is currently looking for a new director. If New Line is reading this, they should hire David Leiner, the director of Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle. That's just a Cheech and Chong Dot Com wish.

There is also a rumor floating around that Tommy Chong cannot be near bongs or drug-related items during the filming of their new movie. Wrong! When the films starts filming this spring, his probation will be over. Furthermore, these items are props.

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is "Who is performing the Hell On Wheels song in Next Movie?". Tommy confirmed that it's Steve Lukather of the band Toto.
In the following articles, Chong discusses the show and says he is finishing up his auto-biography and will be returning to That 70s Show next season.

Guardian Interviews Cheech and Chong

British newspaper, Guardian Unlimited, recently sat down to conduct an interview with Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. It's one of the better interviews we at Cheech and Chong Dot Com have read.
During the interview, Cheech mentioned that he still gets huge residual checks for the movie Up In Smoke. When asked about Tommy's imprisonment, Cheech calls Ashcroft a "fuckin' Nazi." Chong considers it good publicity.
Here's a great quote from Cheech: "We did six records, then six movies," says Cheech. "Now we need to do six of something else, so we get 666 - and then our master Satan can return!"Read this article.
