Tommy Chong is a Canadian-American actor, writer, director, musician, activist for cannabis-rights, and comedian. He is known for his marijuana-themed Cheech & Chong comedy albums and movies with Cheech Marin, as well as playing the character "Leo" on Fox's That '70s Show.
Chong, born in Canada in 1938, rose to fame in the 1970s with Cheech Marin as part of the comedic duo, Cheech & Chong. Their rowdy, marijuana-themed humor struck a chord with young people, and the two released a series of hit comedy albums including Big Bambu (1972) and Cheech & Chong's Wedding Album (1974)
In 1978, the duo made the jump to movies and starred in a series of marijuana-infused comedies, including Up In Smoke (1978), Cheech & Chong's Next Movie (1980), and Still Smokin' (1983). After Cheech & Chong split up in 1985, Chong continued to act, appearing in After Hours (1985), McHale's Navy (1997), Half Baked (1998), and other movies. From 1999-2002, he played the perpetually stoned "Leo" on Fox's That '70s Show.
Chong is also a dedicated advocate for cannabis rights. In a time where cannabis had to be talked about in whispers, Tommy was a loud voice for the advocacy movement, working tirelessly to destigmatize its use. Now that society has moved in a more positive direction regarding the medicinal and recreational use of cannabis, Tommy’s voice continues to ring out loudly, touting its benefits and place in society. His message has never changed, and his passion has remained as strong as it was on stage many years ago. Using his lifelong connections in the industry, he has made it his personal mission to share the very best product available with his fans and fellow herb connoisseurs so he launched his own cannabis company, Chong's Choice. He is also a regular contributor to Cannabis Culture Magazine and sits on the NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) advisory board.
