[[caption-width-right:240:Powerful Joe Rogan]]

Joe Rogan is a stand-up comedian, actor, sports commentator and game show host. Getting his start in the stand up circuit in the UsefulNotes/{{Boston}} area in the late 80s, Joe eventually found his way to Hollywood. After a starring in a few failed pilots (that Joe himself describes as awful), he found his first big success in the ''Series/{{Newsradio}}'' on NBC, playing Joe Garelli.

Soon, Joe would find other projects while his stand-up career also blossomed. A lifelong martial arts practitioner and aficionado, he was a huge fan of the emerging sport of {{Mixed Martial Arts}} and got a job as a backstage interviewer for the UFC, eventually moving to the color commentator position alongside Mike Goldberg, although due to the expansion of the UFC and the amount of shows they now put on and his own crazy schedule, now only does the pay per views and the FOX shows. But he's probably most famous for being the host of the ''Series/{{Fear Factor}}'' game show on NBC, which he has partial ownership of (and hosted a one-season revival in 2012). He also hosted the much derided last season of ''Series/{{The Man Show}}'' with Doug Stanhope.

Joe also does a weekly podcast on his website and several of his stand-up specials have aired on ComedyCentral. He has his own show on {{SyFy}}, ''Joe Rogan Questions Everything'', a show delving into conspiracies and the unknown, with a unique neutral take on the subject, mixing optimistic excitement with leveled skepticism. So far it has only aired one season.

!!Joe Rogan's work provides examples of:

* BerserkButton:
** Comics who steal material from others. His verbal beatdown of Carlos Mencia at the Comedy Store for this practice was a viral sensation on the net.
** Questionable judging in the UFC.
** Questionable (or any) stand-ups from the ground position (once, epically, during the Randy Couture/Tim Sylvia fight)
** Also, people spilling ice in the cage.
** The frequency of accidental eye pokes during UFC events has led to Rogan railing against the standard open-fingered gloves.
* CloudCuckoolander: Very interested in the supernatural, advanced science, New Age subjects, sensory deprivation and various conspiracy theories.
* ConspiracyTheorist: Rogan was a skeptic of the moon landings for a while, but has backed off on the position. He now no longer disputes that NASA went to the moon, but still questions the authenticity of some of the video footage. As a rule, doesn't trust anything the government tells him.
** Still is a strong opponent against the single shooter theory in regards to JFK.
** Not a 9/11 conspiracist per se, but questions the fall of Tower 7.
** Has taken this hobby to his own show on Syfy, ''Joe Rogan Questions Everything''. From the show, he has shown to find the chemtrail theory "completely silly" and while he strongly desires to believe in Bigfoot, is incredibly skeptical that they actually exist. Additionally, he's still open to the idea of aliens, believing they must exist somewhere, but is leaning towards heavy skepticism if they ever have visited us.
* DeadpanSnarker: Not so much in his stand-up act, but often on his podcast and occasionally during UFC broadcasts.
--> '''Joe:''' (describing the technical aspects of a fight in which the two fighters end up on the ground in the "north south" position, which resembles, well, a 69)... and the people are laughing now because they are children.
* HeterosexualLifePartner: Doug Stanhope. Also his regular opening act Joey Diaz.
* ItWillNeverCatchOn: In the late 90s while he was starring in Newsradio, he was also a backstage interviewer for the UFC (and MMA was barely fringe sport at the time, struggling to stay afloat in the US). Rogan said that his fellow actors and other Hollywood types were completely baffled that he would "waste his time" with the job. Cue the explosion of UFC's popularity in the mid 2000's...
* MoneyDearBoy:
** His reason for doing ''{{Fear Factor}}''. Due to being shrewd in his contract negotiation with NBC to host, he ended up with a partial ownership of the show (neither himself or NBC apparently thought the show would be the hit it turned out to be). $20 million later and a revival on the way...
** While Doug Stanhope is the one who said this was true of ''The Man Show,'' it's not beyond reason to assume that Rogan felt the same way.
* SophisticatedAsHell
* TheStoner: A very vocal proponent of marijuana. Is also a fan of psychedelics and sensory deprivation.
