Joe Rogan is a famous comedian, actor and podcaster. He hosts the most influential podcast in the world, ‘The Joe Rogan Experience.’ However, to Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fans, he will always be the voice of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Recently, Rogan let the fans know that he will be with the UFC as long as his good friend Dana White is a part of the company.
Rogan was born on August 11th 1967. Although Joe was a Taekwondo aficionado in his teens, Rogan ultimately stopped practising as he suffered too much head trauma. He initially found fame with his acting roles in cult classic American sitcoms like NewsRadio. During that period, he left Boston and moved to Los Angeles. He also made an appearance for the UFC as a backstage interviewer in 1997.
But, his full-time tenure with the promotion started in 2002, when Dana White talked him into it. Although he was a colour commentator for the UFC, Joe went on to host ‘Fear Factor’ and founded his podcast. Rogan has also put out multiple comedy specials like ‘Joe Rogan: Talking Monkeys in Space,’ ‘Joe Rogan: Strange Times’ and ‘Joe Rogan: Triggered.’
But, Rogan made a major portion of his money from the Spotify deal in 2020. In the three-and-a-half-year deal with the streaming service, Spotify became the exclusive streamer of JRE.
Initially, reports suggested, the deal was worth $100 million. But the Wall Street Journal later claimed that the deal was worth upwards of $200 million. Despite having such a public presence, Rogan has managed to keep his private life out of the spotlight. So let’s dig deep into who Rogan’s family members are!
