I had the honor of interviewing Tommy Chong a few years ago. It was one of the funniest, most fun hour-long phone conversations of my life. At 76-years-old, the original OG stoner comedian is living in a golden age where we’re starting to see the silliness of marijuana prohibition be repealed. Now is as good of a time as ever to have him on Dancing With The Stars, proving to middle America that, yes, you can still shake your ass even are a lifetime of smoking that skunky, sticky mary jane. Rocking a green blazer, he tore up the floor with his partner Peta Murgatroyd.
Erin Andrews introduces him, which makes me wonder: I wonder what type of stoner EA would be? Seems like the type who’s never toked out of irrational fear it’d screw up her career. If she does puff-puff pass, I can’t imagine how paranoid she’d be. Probably a buzzkill, ah
Anyway, smoke ’em if you got him. To Tommy Chong!
