The Comic’s Comic often feels reluctant to hype up the comedians who receive slots in ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, because they don’t always live up to that hype.

But the Cha Cha and the Salsa were no match for Tommy Chong, still in the running after the first two weeks of competition on the Fall 2014 season. Chong, 76, has been rallying the “stoners” who follow him on Twitter @TommyChong and are lifelong fans of Cheech & Chong.

Here’s his first rehearsal footage with dancing partner Peta Murgatroyd.

Their first live dancing routine was a cha cha set to “Drop It Like It’s Hot.”

This week, they salsa danced to “Higher.” Get it. Higher!
