Joe Rogan Net Worth
Net Worth: $100 million
Joseph James Rogan was born on August 11, 1967, in Newark, New Jersey. He is an American comedian, podcast host, and mixed martial arts, color commentator. He has also worked as a television host and an actor. He attended the University of Massachusetts Boston but found it pointless and dropped out early. He lived in the Boston area until he was 24, and then moved to New York City.
Rogan had no intention of being a professional stand-up comedian, and initially considered a career in kickboxing. He was a fan of comedy as a youngster and his parents took him to see comedian Richard Pryor’s film Live on the Sunset Strip, which affected him “in such a profound way. Nothing had made me laugh like that.
While he worked on his stand-up, Rogan had several jobs to secure himself financially by teaching martial arts at Boston University and Revere, Massachusetts, delivering newspapers, driving a limousine, doing construction work, and completing duties for a private investigator. His blue comedy style earned him gigs at bachelor parties and strip clubs. One night, Rogan convinced the owner of a comedy club in Boston to allow him to try a new, five-minute routine. At the show was talent manager Jeff Sussman, who liked Rogan’s act and offered to become his manager, which Rogan accepted.
Rogan is a great host, having had an extensive and wildly successful comedy career as well as a mixed martial arts interviewer and UFC commentator. Fans of the podcast will hear Rogan discuss issues such as philosophy, comedy, and, of course, current events, with one of the most notable recent guests being Kanye West, who talked about the reasons why he decided to run for President of the United States. Rogan has such a huge fan base, but there is so much that goes on behind the scenes of his work and other people involved in making the podcast successful.
