You never know what to expect from Joe Rogan.
This podcasting jock is a true student of comedy, always holding his cards close to his chest. Ask him what his new show “Strange Times” is about and he demurs.
But we know that Rogan is an equal opportunity offender, grinding the gears of liberals and conservatives alike.
In his 2016 comedy special “Triggered,” for example, Rogan said women shouldn’t guard the White House by themselves, guys can’t be trusted to make your edibles and he described how Bruce became Caitlyn — as in Jenner. He even predicted that if we weren’t careful, we would end up with President Trump.
He called that one right.
The only way to find out what knowledge he will drop in “Strange Times” is to be in the audience when he performs at Tucson Music Hall on Friday, June 29. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.
Rogan’s stand-up is filled with energetic and charismatic observations of the world around him, often challenging social norms and the status quo of modern America.
He performs regularly at the world famous Comedy Store in Hollywood, alongside powerhouses Joey Diaz, Chris D’Elia and Dave Chappelle.
While Rogan came to fame as a comic on the ’90s sitcom, “News Radio,” he didn’t become a household name until he worked as the host of NBC’s reality show “Fear Factor” from 2001 to 2006.
His podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” is consistently ranked among iTunes’ top 10. Guests on the show vary from Rogan’s cast of comic buddies, MMA fighters and coaches, to scientists working on cutting-edge research.
On top of podcasting and comedy, Rogan is the premiere color commentator for the Ultimate Fighting Championship, drawing from his experience as a black belt in both taekwondo and Brazilian jiujitsu.
Rogan’s comedy can be all over the board, but be warned: It’s not for the faint of heart. Rogan is recommended for mature audiences only.
“If you’re easily offended, stay home or do something else,” Rogan said in a 2014 interview with Josh Chesler of the Phoenix New Times. “I try to show people the world through my eyes as much as I can, while still making it funny so people will enjoy it.”
