Joe Rogan



My road in life has been direct.
His two great passions are mixed martial arts and stand-up comedy.
At age 19, he won the U.S. Open Taekwondo Championship.
At age 21, he decided to start pursuing stand-up comedy; his parents dissuaded him, were worried he wasn't funny enough to make it.
Says that the first few years doing stand-up were "brutal," he'd bomb constantly.
Believes that his martial arts training helped him have the confidence and discipline to push through the bad shows and keep working.
Says success is not about "getting to a certain place," it's about the constant pursuit of your interests.
Considers his own life a happy, successful life because there's nothing he does that he doesn't look forward to; all aspects of his work life are enjoyable.
Champions the idea of acting out or publishing your ideas on the internet; says this will teach you how to face and process harsh criticism.

I'm a standup comedian, host of one of the most popular comedy podcasts, and a commentator for UFC events.
