Cheech + Chong Return After Stoner's Release From Jail

Stoner funnymen CHEECH + CHONG are teaming up for another movie just days after TOMMY CHONG's release from jail.

Chong, who spent nine months behind bars in Bakersfield, California, on a drug paraphernalia rap, admits he learned so much in prison that he has enough material for a hilarious new film with his UP IN SMOKE partner CHEECH MARIN.

Chong reveals he met "some of the funniest guys" while he was serving time - including bikers and transvestites. And he isn't holding back when it comes to poking fun at the California penal system - he even plays to crack jokes at the expense of his camp administrator.

He jokes, "It was kind of humiliating. What they do is they strip your soul away from you... a lot of strip searches. But the camp administrator... he liked to see naked guys, and he'd always be out there checking guys out."

But Chong admits his prison term in the desert wasn't too bad and he made a lot of friends.

He adds, "Federal time is hell - there's like a two hour wait for the tennis court. Sometimes you're suntanning and the wind whips up some dust and you get it all over yourself.

"We're going to make another Cheech and Chong film. In the film I'm going to show Cheech what I learned in jail."
