Biography and Career

Tommy Chong was born on May 24, 1938 in Edmonton, Alberta and he is a Canadian comedian, actor and musician and he is also well known for his stereotypical portrayals of hippie era stoners. He is most widely known for his involvement in the marijuana themed Cheech & Chong comedy movies with Cheech Marin as well as playing the character Leo Chingkwake.

Chong graduated from Victoria Composite High School. When Tommy Chong was still young his family moved to Calgary, Alberta to a neighbourhood Chong refers to as the Dog Patch. He later went on to graduate from Victoria School back in Edmonton, Alberta.

He was playing guitar for a Calgary soul grou p called The Shades. The Shades moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, where the band's name changed to Little Daddy and The Bachelors.

They recorded a song, Too Much Monkey Business, Junior's Jerk. Together with bandmember Bobby Taylor, Chong opened a Vancouver nightclub in 1963 called the Blues Palace, formerly the Alma Theatre.

That group broke up shortly afterwards when he attempted to have the Vancouvers' contract halved, so that he, would constitute the group while other members would simply be regarded as sidemen and session artists.

He was married to his first wife, Maxine Sneed from 1960 until their divorce in 1970. He had two daughters Robbi and Rae Dawn from other relationships. He married his second wife Shelby Fiddis.

He has three children with her, sons Paris and Gilbran, and a daughter, Precious Chong.

Both Robbi and Rae Dawn have pursued careers in acting. Chong is certainly one of the most famous Asian Canadian hippies and among the most famous Asian Canadian comics of all time. In the late 1980s, Chong became a citizen of the United States.
