What does Joe Rogan do for a living?

1988–1994: Early stand-up career

Rogan had no intention of being a professional stand-up comedian, and initially considered a career in kickboxing. He was a fan of comedy from a young age, later saying of Richard Pryor’s special Live on the Sunset Strip, “It affected me in such a profound way. Nothing had made me laugh like that.” His friends from gym and Taekwondo school, whom he would make laugh with impressions and jokes, convinced him to try stand-up. At 21, after six months preparing material and practicing his delivery, he performed his first stand-up routine on August 27, 1988, at an open-mic night at a Stitches comedy club in Boston.

 

1994–1999: Hardball and NewsRadio

In 1994, Rogan relocated to Los Angeles, where his first national television spot followed on the MTV comedy show Half-Hour Comedy Hour. The appearance led to the network’s offering him a three-year exclusive contract and a role in a pilot episode of a “dopey game show” for $500. Rogan declined, but it prompted Sussman to send tapes of Rogan’s performances to several networks, which sparked a bidding war. After a period of negotiation, Rogan accepted a development deal with the Disney network. He secured his first major acting role in the 1994 nine-episode Fox sitcom Hardball as Frank Valente, a young, egocentric star player on a professional baseball team. Rogan called the hiring process “weird”, as the network had no idea if he could act until he was asked by Dean Valentine, then-president of Walt Disney Television, to whom he replied: “If you can lie, you can act, and if you can lie to crazy girlfriends, you can act under pressure. The filming schedule was a new experience for Rogan, who started to work 12-hour days. Rogan later said: “It was a great show on paper until a horrible executive producer with a big ego was hired by Fox to run the show and he rewrote it.” Around this time, Rogan began performing at The Comedy Store in Hollywood and was hired as a paid regularly by owner Mitzi Shore. He performed at the club for the next 13 years for free and paid for the venue’s new sound system.
