Hes the former host of Fear Factor and a current UFC commentator, but Joe Rogan was, is, and always shall be first and foremost a no-holds-barred stand-up at least until his December 20, 2012, (perceived) End of the World show alongside fellow rabble-rousing comic Doug Stanhope. It could be computers that do us in, he believes; it could be aliens. But in the meantime, its about elevating himself as a human being, whether its caring for his new daughter or prepping for a new comedy special debuting on Spike TV in June. When I talk to people that are really honest and genuinely searching for information and genuinely curious and insightful, those people inspire the shit out of me, he effuses.
Reach a higher, possibly discomforting consciousness when Rogan headlines the Tempe Improv.
