Cheech Marin Net Worth: Cheech Marin is an American comedian, actor, and writer who has a net worth of $12 million dollars. Born in 1946 in Los Angeles, California, as Richard Anthony Marin, Cheech Marin is well known for his work in the comedy duo Cheech & Chong with Tommy Chong. Marin studied at San Fernando Valley State College and moved to Canada to avoid being drafted during the Vietnam War. While in Canada, he met Tommy Chong. His nickname Cheech is derived from the word "chicharron", which is a fried pork skin often considered a delicacy in Mexican culture. Chicharron is a popular snack amongst pot smokers, and fit well with Chong's last name to create the alliterative Cheech & Chong. During the '70s and '80s, he appeared in several movies as part of the comedy act. The duo has released nearly a dozen albums, including their 1971 self-titled debut. Their next three albums, "Big Bambu", "Los Cochinos", and "Cheech & Chong's Wedding Album," all charted in the top five. The two separated in 1985 and Marin continued his acting career, appearing in several films, including "The Shrimp on the Barbie" and "Once Upon a Time in Mexico". Soon after, he began working in TV, scoring parts on "The Golden Palace", "Nash Bridges", "Judging Amy", and "Rob". Marin appeared in the "Spy Kids" movies, and lent his voice to characters in "Oliver & Company", "The Lion King", "Cars", and "Cars 2″. He also worked in children's music, releasing two well-received albums. Marin penned his first children's book, "Cheech the School Bus Driver", in 2007. He won "Celebrity Jeopardy!'s Million Dollar Celebrity Invitational" in 2010, defeating Aisha Tyler and Anderson Cooper. Marin has been married several times, most recently to Natasha Rubin in 2009.
