8 Famous Show-Biz Pairings Who Called It Quits


“Cheech & Chong”

Talk about an oxymoron. This Grammy Award-winning team of stoner comedians, comprised of Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, were a hit on the stand-up circuit back in the 1970s and ’80s. Their brand of hippie humor was chock-full of drug references, with marijuana often acting as the focal point. They released a number of comedy albums between 1971 and 1981, and appeared in many low-budget cult films, including Up in Smoke, Nice Dreams and Things Are Tough All Over. In 1985, citing a need to develop projects that didn’t focus on drug use, Marin left the group. His departure caused a rift that lasted through the ’90s. Eventually the two made up, and in 2008 Cheech & Chong reunited for a comedy tour.
