An Evening with Cheech Marin
Did you know that Cheech—which is not his real name—is also the owner of the most renowned collection of Chicano art in the world? He also grew up the son of a cop. He even crushed Anderson Cooper on Celebrity Jeopardy! In his long-awaited memoir, this counterculture legend writes candidly about coming-of-age as the wisecracking kid in 1960s Los Angeles, resisting the draft as a young man, and many other surprising journeys along the way of creating one of the most successful comedy acts of all time. Join us for a spirited evening as Cheech reflects on his incredible career in conversation with L.A.’s own Marisol Hernandez, lead singer of the GRAMMY award-winning La Santa Cecilia.
