Joe Rogan

Joe Rogan has officially signed on to return as the host of NBC's Fear Factor revival. Rogan, who hosted the show's original run from 2001 to 2006, will be on hand when production begins at the end of July.

Joe Rogan

If Punk'd plays on unsuspecting celebrities, Game Show in My Head brings hidden camera gags to the unsuspecting public. The latest production from Ashton Kutcher's production company sends contestants out to the streets to create fabricated situations with unwitting passersby — all directed by host Joe Rogan, who gives on-the-spot directions for each gag through a hidden earpiece.

Joe Rogan: Thieving Comics Are No Laughing Matter

Joe Rogan

Not so long ago, Joe Rogan was talking people into eating bugs and jumping out of planes as the host of Fear Factor. Since then, he's returned to his stand-up comedy roots with the CD Shiny Happy Jihad (released April 10) and a new Showtime special airing tonight at 9 pm/ET. He's also been no stranger to confrontation — serving as a color commentator on Spike TV's broadcasts of UFC bouts and advocating a crackdown on comedians he believes plagiarize material. spoke with the candid comic and, well, got an earful. Your Joe Rogan: Live special starts off with a microbiological metaphor for Los Angeles, and you deal with existential issues throughout.

My jaw's agape, my tongue tastes funny and I think I may actually have lost all faith in humanity. But wait, wait, let me start from the beginning. Ba-bomp, ba-bomp, ba-bomp, ba-da-da-da-domp ba-bomp… Every season I forget just how terrible that jazzed-up live version of the Burnett-esque end-credits music is. Receptionist Robyn's show-opening fist-bump with Carolyn, on the other hand, is quite possibly the most charming thing I have ever seen. See how well things started out? I'm so naive. Cain and Abel. Romulus and Remus. Randal and Rebecca. (Or Randy and Becky, as the folks back home apparently call them. How quaint.) Someone read more
