Summary
  • "A memoir by the counterculture legend discusses how he formed one of the most successful comedy duos of all time, became a representative of the recreational drug movement, forged a successful solo career, and amassed a collection of renowned Chicano art, "--NoveList
  • Cheech Marin writes candidly about growing up as a wisecracking kid in south central LA, resisting the draft, and his chance meeting with Tommy Chong--and how they formed one of the most successful comedy acts of all time, breaking up, reuniting, and still performing together to this day. Cheech the storyteller takes the reader on a wild ride along his strange and wonderful path to fame that saw the son of a policeman become the face of the recreational drug movement. He describes his early artistic aspirations to become a potter, his brief stint as a magazine reporter when he interviewed Little Richard, and his surreal and unlikely ascent to the top of the comedy world. Cheech also details how his passion for Chicano art led him to assemble the world's finest private collection, and how he bested the likes of Anderson Cooper to win Celebrity Jeopardy! Written with his trademark comedic flair and replete with colorful characters both famous and obscure, this is a fresh, funny, and unstintingly honest account of an incredible life and career that represents a "new high" in autobiography.--From book jacket
