Joe Rogan

Joe Rogan

Joe Rogan was born on August 11, 1967, in Newark, New Jersey. He grew up with a keen interest in martial arts. While he did have a small career as an amateur fighter, fear of injuries made him hang his gloves up at the age of 21.

He started a career as a stand-up comic in Boston which eventually led to him having a career on TV. Joe Rogan signed a developmental contract with Dinsey in 1994 and appeared on various networks such as NBC and Fox as an actor in sitcoms.

Joe Rogan: The face of ‘Fear Factor’

While Rogan had already appeared on UFC programming, his first foray into mainstream popularity came with Fear Factor. Rogan accepted to host the show as it would help inspire him to have content for his shows. It isn’t coincidental that Rogan’s stand-up gigs became national after they saw him host Fear Factor.

The show ended in 2006 but is still considered a part of American TV lore. Rogan will forever be tied to that ambitious TV project.

Joe Rogan meets the UFC

Rogan debuted as an interviewer for the UFC at UFC 12. He continued working with the promotion for a few years until he left due to low pay. However, Rogan was brought back in 2001 when the UFC was bought by Zuffa. He agreed to do shows for just a bunch of tickets because he was such a fan of the sport.

However, by 2003 he started getting paid regularly by Dana White. He formed the core of the UFC broadcast booth till 2016 with Mike Goldberg, and since with Daniel Cormier and Jon Anik. Rogan does 10 UFC shows a year now.

Joe Rogan: The podcast extraordinaire

Rogan began his ‘The Joe Rogan Experience‘ Podcast in 2009 with comedian Brian Redban. The podcast steadily grew in popularity, becoming one of the first major podcasts to get visibility during the podcast boom. It is now a center for various pop-culture figures from different political leanings and experiences coming to talk to Rogan.

His notable guests have been Elon Musk, Lance Armstrong, Mike Tyson, and various MMA World Champions like Kamaru Usman, Georges St. Pierre, Jon Jones, Israel Adesanya, etc.

The podcast was sold to Spotify for $100 million, the most expensive licensing agreement for a podcast to date.
