Johnny Carson – Midnight Joker and Toker?


From a (mercifully short and to-the-point) AM1160 press release. Even moreso once I got a’holt of it. Mercifully short of “credibility” issues too:

Counter-culture comedy icons Cheech & Chong pay a visit to “The Pop Culture King” show at 8 p.m. Friday and again on Sunday at noon on AM 1690 (Atlanta) “The Voice of the Arts”. The station will also be airing portions of the interview throughout the week leading up to the show and the duo’s appearance at the Tabernacle on Sept. 26.

Host Jon Waterhouse spoke with Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong about their beginning, blending music with comedy and stepping back onstage together after more than 25 years apart. Marin and Chong also chat about their cult following and some exposure they didn’t receive.

“We never did get on ‘The Tonight Show’ with Johnny Carson. That’s because we shared the same dealer, and Johnny didn’t want us to blow his cover,” jokes Chong.
