Joe Rogan- From the ‘Guy on Fear Factor’ to one of the most influential personalities in 2020
Joe Rogan has been on the media scene for quite some time now. Of course, he has had his ups and downs during this time.
However, what’s really inspiring is how he climbed the ladders of success to become one of the greatest podcasters. He started out as a stand-up comedian in Boston in 1988 and shifted base to Los Angeles in 1994. He struck a deal with Disney and subsequently appeared as an actor in several shows.
Rogan started his gig as a color commentator for UFC in 1997, and is still going strong. In 2001, he paused his stand-up comedy as he started hosting Fear Factor. Upon its end in 2006, he resumed his comedy career.
Thereafter, in 2009, he started the “Joe Rogan Podcast”, and is the rest is history.
Rogan has gained a lot of popularity and sways over his audiences over the years. In fact, his ‘enlightened’ style of comedy has even led to his comparison to one of the greatest comedians of all time, George Carlin.
Fellow UFC commentator Daniel Cormier also commented on the transformation that Rogan has gone through. He said that when he first met Rogan, he saw him as the guy on ‘Fear Factor’. However, he expressed his awe at how he has become a giant public figure, and “50,000 people came to see Joe Rogan” at a comedy show.
