When Tommy Chong, one half of the legendary stoner duo Cheech & Chong pled guilty last year to shipping drug paraphernalia, he ended up serving nine months in jail. Rather than seeing his career go up in smoke, the That 70s Show regular is getting back to his stand-up roots. There's talk of a C&C movie in the works (tentative title: Grumpy Old Stoners), but you can catch his act Saturday (January 29) at Yuk Yuk's Downtown, where he performs with his life partner, Shelby. See Comedy Listings for details.
