Publisher's Summary

The long-awaited memoir from a counterculture legend.
Cheech Marin came of age at an interesting time in America and became a self-made counterculture legend with his other half, Tommy Chong. This insightful memoir delves into how Cheech dodged the draft, formed one of the most successful comedy duos of all time, became the face of the recreational drug movement with the film Up in Smoke, forged a successful solo career with roles in The Lion King and, more recently, Jane the Virgin, and became the owner of the most renowned collection of Chicano art in the world.
Written in Cheech's uniquely hilarious voice, this memoir will take you to new highs.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

One of the Funniest/Intelligent Guys on Earth!

I first heard Cheech & Chong when I was in elementary school, and man did they change my outlook on life - for the better!

Get to know more about the funny guy

What made the experience of listening to Cheech Is Not My Real Name the most enjoyable?

I always enjoy biographies narrated by the author. What I did not realise is how much he did outside the Cheech and Chong duo.

Who was your favorite character and why?

What an absolutely stupid question!!!!

What about Cheech Marin’s performance did you like?

The narrator was Cheech

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

Why does Audible force you to answer questions instead of give you free voice. Any one who grew up with Sister Mary Elephant will really appreciate the man looking for "Dave"....
