Funny-man and Chicano art collector Cheech Marin has listed his Malibu beach home for $5,995,000. Marin may be best-known as half of the Cheech and Chong comedy duo that were headliners in the 1970s, and as Don Johnson's partner, Inspector Joe Dominguez on "Nash Bridges." Cheech, whose name is derived from chicharron, a spicy fried-pork-skin snack, is among the top collectors of Mexican and Mexican-American art and been a large supporter of Chicano art on the West Coast.

The beachfront house he is selling was designed by Robert Gilbert and built in 1929. It has a low-bluff location with 120 feet of sandy beachfront. There is a three-bedroom main house with one-of-a-kind custom woodwork throughout.
