Joe Rogan started off his career in front of an audience with his stand-up in the Boston area. While preparing for his first stand-up, he managed to earn money by delivering newspapers, teaching MMA at Boston University, driving a limousine, and construction work.
Thereafter, he transferred to New York. After gaining success in the city, he again moved, this time to Los Angeles, where he struck a developmental deal with Disney. He appeared on various television shows.
In 1997, Rogan began his gig as a color commentator for the UFC. Today, he among the most favorite commentators of fight fans around the globe. Of course, plays at his nickname, for example, Joe “It’s Weird” Rogan, are all part of his enormous popularity.
He is also known as one of the best MMA Experts in the business.
He stopped stand-up comedy when he appeared as the host in Fear Factor in 2001. However, he resumed comedy after he left the show in 2006.
And then came the gig that catapulted his fame. He started his podcast in 2009, where he has interviewed experts in all fields and had some mind-blowing conversations. That is perhaps the reason why the show has such a huge fan-base.
