Tommy Chong‘s “Almost Legal” talk/variety show on FilmOn.com features Danny Trejo tonight–to talk about indie movie Strike One and his book with Samuel L. Jackson, Prison Ramen and, of course, pot. Musical guest is rapper Jonwayne of Stones Throw Records. The show is presented by WeedMaps and it can be seen at filmon.com/chong. New shows debut every Friday at 8pm EST.
David Llauger Meiselman’s award-winning indie, Strike One, is a coming-of-age drama which stars Danny Trejo and breakout artist Johnny Ortiz (American Crime, McFarland U.S.A.), and sheds light on the cruel and unfair Three Strikes Law. Produced by Felipe Alejandro and shot on location in his childhood community of Boyle Heights, an East Los Angeles community that is predominantly Latino, the film depicts the type of neighborhoods most affected by the controversial law, and details the story of a teenager’s journey through a legal system streamlined to declare him guilty and lock him up. –
The new talk and variety show, Almost Legal With Tommy Chong, with host Tommy Chong of the legendary comedy duo Cheech & Chong was as a co-production with Chongson and FilmOn Networks with the title sponsor WeedMaps FilmOn.Com/Chong. The show will also be available to purchase via MondoTunes on digital stores such as iTunes.
Last week’s guests include Killer Mike of hot and controversial hip hop act Run the Jewels and Chef Roi Choi, the Los Angeles food scene hero who created the restaurant Pot at the Line Hotel in Koreatown.Almost Legal with Tommy Chong is an irreverent take on the traditional late night talk show with celebrity interviews, sketch comedy and musical acts—he’s called it “a stoner’s version of Jon Stewart.” The first episode garnered over two million views since its launch on October 23rd and featured acclaimed horror director Eli Roth.
Other guests this season include Steve-O, Andy Milonakis, Hannibal Buress and select guests provided by WeedMaps
