Yeah, and back then, he had hair and hadn't abused anabolic steroids so was like 40% of the size he is today.

[-] [email protected] 18 points 1 week ago

No, I think he was juicing even before that.

Someone should do an expose on all these people and talk about who they were and what they did before going full MAGA.

Then he lost all respect people had for him

[-] [email protected] 16 points 1 week ago

People had respect for the Fear Factor guy?

[-] [email protected] 12 points 1 week ago

He was kind of funny on the show News Radio before even that. That was a good show with a lot of good actors but seems like a lot of people never heard of it.

He also was a moronic maintenance man for a radio station.

RIP Phil Hartman & Fuck Andy Dick

[-] UnderpantsWeevil 43 points 1 week ago

Trying to explain News Radio to a Zoomer and they just keep waving a can of pepper spray at me and calling for help.

[-] [email protected] 12 points 1 week ago

Man I miss when Joe Rogan was just the hot dumb handyman. Simpler times.

[-] [email protected] 13 points 1 week ago

He was all into the conspiracy theories though, even in news radio!!

[-] [email protected] 11 points 1 week ago

Yup, and it was funny because his character was a moron that nobody took seriously.

“It’s a tv show about these people who make a podcast.”

[-] [email protected] 35 points 1 week ago

He had people drink horse cum for a chance at some money.

[-] [email protected] 34 points 1 week ago

Wait, you guys are getting paid?

[-] [email protected] 11 points 1 week ago

Well, most of them didn't get paid either...

[-] [email protected] 6 points 1 week ago

Imagine forcing yourself to swallow like half a litre of horse cum and then not winning the last challenge and leaving with nothing.

And then it gets broadcast on TV for everyone you know to see.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 1 week ago

And then the cravings begin...

I was around for that era of Joe Rogan and he was an absolute dullard of a host.

[-] [email protected] 22 points 1 week ago

Isn’t that a prerequisite for hosting these kind of shows?

Nobody wants to host those shows except for the easy pay check.

[-] MutilationWave 9 points 1 week ago

I'd toss my job and host a stupid show for that kind of money in a hot second, wouldn't you?

[-] MrVilliam 14 points 1 week ago

If this source is correct, he made about $100k per episode. For that amount of money, I would host the shit out of that dumbass show.

I actually liked the guy during that era. He was a goofy dude who just did weird stuff while giving our weird bro energy.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 1 week ago

Yeah he seemed pretty harmless at the time.

[-] [email protected] 26 points 1 week ago* (last edited 1 week ago)

Joe Rogan has a recorded, on stage set, where he straight up says something like:

"Do not take my advice on anything. You shouldn't listen to me. I'm an idiot! I don't know shit; I just make jokes for a living."

I guess people listened and then didn't follow the above advice. 🤷🏻‍♂️

[-] [email protected] 17 points 1 week ago

That's how he lends credibility to everything that airs on his show. It is disarming enough to help the listener extend that sentiment toward the guest long enough to explain whatever lunatic theory.

And then you're listening to the guest, not Rogan so...

He's been doing the podcast since 2009.

[-] [email protected] 23 points 1 week ago

Howie Mandel had hair at one time as well.

[-] [email protected] 16 points 1 week ago

And had a children's cartoon show.

[-] [email protected] 12 points 1 week ago* (last edited 1 week ago)

Bobby’s World! I liked that show.

[-] Plopp 9 points 1 week ago

As did Patrick Stewart.

Just kidding.
