Joe Rogan made his stand-up comeback Tuesday night with a self-deprecating set mocking and discussing his previous headlines. The beleaguered comedian and podcaster addressed his troubles, including the widely shared viral footage of the comedian uttering the n-word on his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, in front of a jubilant crowd in Austin, Texas.
Joe Rogan Shared his experience
“I make a livelihood talking nonsense — that’s why this is so perplexing to me,” he explained. “Is it really my fault if you follow my vaccination recommendations? When my idiotic suggestion sounded better, what were you going to do? ‘Do you remember that guy on TV who had people eat animal dicks? What is his opinion on medicine?’ Don’t follow my advise if you want my opinion.”
Rogan was asked if he would take Rumble’s $100 million offer to migrate his programme from Spotify to the right-wing site during a post-show question and answer session with fans. The comedian stated that he intended to stay with the streamer.
What do the crew members have to say?
Another member of the crowd inquired as to what makes him the most uneasy. He seemed honest when he said, “Being a nasty guy.” “I’m serious. “I try my hardest.”
The comedian’s performance at the Vulcan Gas Company was his first public appearance since being engaged in controversy (although he did do an unannounced “secret” gig at the same location over the weekend).
In a new episode of his podcast, Rogan described his previous scandals as “a political hit job.” With his guest, comedian Akaash Singh, he also discussed his recent headlines.
