Cheech & Chong is the American comedy duo comprising Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong. The pair rose to fame in the 1970s and ’80s with a number of comedy tours and films, most notably their 1978 movie debut “Up in Smoke.” Marin and Chong had a falling out in the mid-80s, causing the once-successful partners to pursue separate careers.
