* DoingItForTheArt: He works for the UFC out of love for martial arts, and did so even when in the early days both prestige of the events and pay were considered below a comedian on a popular sitcom. Still true these days, although now, according to Dana White "Joe gets ''paid''".

Still true these days, although now, according to Dana White "Joe gets ''paid''". His podcast is similar, finding his life far more interesting interviewing a wide variety of people even though it's more money out of his pocket than anything else. Between all that and stand up comedy he doesn't make nearly as much as he could, but thanks to News Radio and Fear Factor he doesn't have to worry too much about that.

* 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.

* PrematurelyBald: Somewhat unusually, was very open about prematurely balding in his twenties and getting a (bad) hair transplant. Recently, he gave up trying to keep it and just shaved it all off (his transplant scar is now visible on the back of his head). Ironically, many think he now looks like his boss Dana White...

Joseph James Rogan (born August 11, 1967) 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 UsefulNotes/MixedMartialArts 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/FearFactor'' 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.

* 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...

** His reason for doing ''Series/FearFactor''. 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...

* BadAss: Don't think he's just a goofy comedian and UFC commentator. He holds black belts in tae kwon do (and competed in national tournaments in his teens) and Brazilian jiu jitsu (under Jean Jacques Machado). Also, back on Fear Factor he ate a live Madagascar hissing cockroach and tomato hornworm with almost no trouble


Joe also does a weekly podcast on his website and several of his stand-up specials have aired on Creator/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.
