Early Life & Education
Joseph James Rogan was born on August 11, 1967, in Newark, New Jersey. Rogan participated in Little League Baseball but developed an interest in martial arts in his early teens. At age 14, Rogan took up karate and, a year later, started Taekwondo. When he was 19, he won the US Open Championship taekwondo tournament as a lightweight. He was a Massachusetts full-contact state champion for four consecutive years and became a Taekwondo instructor. Rogan also practiced amateur kickboxing and held a 2–1 record; he retired from competition at age 21 as he began to suffer from frequent headaches and feared he might sustain worse injuries. He attended the University of Massachusetts Boston but found it pointless and dropped out early.
1988–1994: Early stand-up career: Rogan had no intention of being a professional stand-up comedian, and initially considered a career in kickboxing. In 1990, Rogan moved to New York City as a full-time comedian; he was “scratching and grinding” for money at the time, and stayed with his grandfather in Newark for the first six months. Rogan later cited Richard Jeni, Lenny Bruce, Sam Kinison, and Bill Hicks as comedy influences.
1994–1999: Hardball and NewsRadio: He secured his first major acting role in the 1994 nine-episode Fox sitcom Hardball as Frank Valente, a young, ego-centric star player on a professional baseball team. From 1995 to 1999, Rogan starred in the NBC sitcom NewsRadio as Joe Garelli, an electrician and handyman at the show’s fictional news radio station.
1997–2006: UFC commentator and Fear Factor: Rogan began working for the mixed martial arts promotion Ultimate Fighting Championship as backstage and post-fight interviewer. His first show took place at UFC 12: Judgement Day in Dothan, Alabama on February 7, 1997. In 2001, the development of Rogan’s television show was interrupted after he accepted an offer from NBC to host the American edition of Fear Factor.
In December 2009, Rogan launched a free podcast with his friend and fellow comedian Brian Redban. Rogan hosted the short-lived CBS show Game Show in My Head that aired for eight episodes in January 2009 and was produced by Ashton Kutcher.
