Hey man, I’m Tommy Chong, half of Cheech & Chong & 77 yr old comedian, director, writer, entrepreneur, activist and the gateway drug to marijuana…AMA!
Well it’s nice to be back and doing another AMA!! I’m here with Alexis Ohanian one of the founders of Reddit and he’s helping me out tonight. Should be nice because I’m pretty stoned.
So, a lot has happened over the last couple months. I started a new national cannabis line, endorsed Bernie Sanders, did voiceover work for a new animated Disney movie called “Zootopia,” started touring with Cheech again, a new podcast, and decided to start filming a new YouTube show which I’ll be announcing more info about in a couple weeks. Cannabis Club TV and I also just filmed a bunch of videos last week I think you'll enjoy like "Man Vs Chong," "DJ Chong's Keys to Success" and about six others we're putting out this month. Other than that I’m 77 years old, hanging out with my wife Shelby and making a lot of pipes in my garage and staying in shape.
Cheech & Chong is myself and my comedy partner Cheech Marin. Over the last few decades we have released albums, movies and toured the country. It’s amazing what kind of reaction stoners have given us and I love smoking with my fans whenever I get the chance. We have been credited as pioneers of the legalization of marijuana and the popularizers of cannabis in pop culture. I directed Up In Smoke, Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie, Nice Dreams, Still Smoking, Far Out Man and The Corsican Brothers.
You can see more info about Chong’s Choice, my new national cannabis line, at http://www.ChongsChoice.com. My new podcast will be released this Wednesday on http://cannabisradio.com. My Instagram is @heytommychong, my twitter is @tommychong, and my Facebook is @elchapo. “Zootopia” comes out March 4th in the US and I play the voice of Yax the Yak! Lets do this Reddit!
