Legendary actor, Best-Selling author, and Grammy Award-winning comedian Tommy Chong is best known as one-half of the legendary cannabis-fueled comedy duo Cheech & Chong, and is now confirmed to host the upcoming talk show, "Almost Legal with Tommy Chong," which will begin streaming on FilmOn.com and sponsored by WeedMaps.
The format of "Almost Legal with Tommy Chong" follows the lines of a traditional late night talk show, consisting of celebrity interviews, musical performances and skits, with a flair that is quintessentially "Chong."
The show is a hilarious and satirical take on a classic late night talk show with confirmed celebrity guests that include Eli Roth, Killer Mike, Roy Choi, Sugar Ray Leonard, George Lopez, and many more. Think "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" meets "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis."
Cheech & Chong defined an era with their hilariously irreverent, satirical, no-holds-barred comedy routines. Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong's phenomenal success began on the stand-up comedy circuit which led to 9 hit comedy albums and 8 hit films, breaking box office records, shattering comedy album sales, garnering multiple Grammy nominations and mesmerizing fans for more than 4 decades. Their stunningly successful comedy streak transitioned to film in 1978 with their first movie, "Up In Smoke," the highest grossing comedy of the time 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. Chong is also highly recognizable from his role as the aging
hippie photo store worker "Leo" on FOX's "That 70's Show."
The show will premiere on broadcast FOTV (carried by Dish & Charter) and online at 8:00pm on Friday, October 23rd, 2015.
