Actor and comedian Cheech Marin has been divorced twice, and had a traumatic split from his creative partner, Tommy Chong.

S21E15: Cheech Marin

Actor, comedian, and musician Cheech Marin stormed into the public imagination back in the 70’s as half of the stoner comedy duo Cheech & Chong, but his career has long since expanded beyond weed-fueled road trip movies. Along the way, he’s had ups and downs with creative partner Tommy Chong, gone through two divorces, and opened an art museum celebrating Chicano art. Alicia has the whole smoke-filled ride.
