Comedy Central to Debut JOE ROGAN: LIVE FROM THE TABERNACLE, 2/28
FC commentator and prolific podcaster Joe Rogan returns to Comedy Central in the uncensored world premiere of "Joe Rogan: Live from the Tabernacle," debuting on Friday, February 28 at Midnight ET/PT.
In front of a live audience at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA, Rogan delves into topics like marriage, plastic surgery, and the very existence of the universe, all from his trademark fearless perspective. He takes on the Mayans, time travel, politics, and even childbirth with his signature delivery.
Leading up to the on-air premiere, Comedy Central Stand-Up will feature preview clips from the special. Fans can follow Rogan on Twitter at @JoeRogan, and he will also engage with Comedy Central fans via a CC Tumblr "Ask a Professional Comedian" live event.
An international headliner, Rogan has been called "one of the most complex and exciting stand-ups working in America today" by The Guardian. He starred in the one-hour specials "Talking Monkeys in Space" and "Joe Rogan Live," and released the CDs "Shiny Happy Jihad" and "I'm Gonna Be Dead Someday."
Rogan is host of The Joe Rogan Experience, a longform conversation with guests that is one of the most popular comedy podcasts on iTunes. Since 2002, Rogan has provided color commentary for the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) on Pay Per View, SPIKE Television and now on FOX.
Rogan was seen in the film "Here Comes The Boom" and starred in the film "Zookeeper." He was the host of the hugely successful Reality Show "Fear Factor," and played Joe Garrelli, the resident electrician on the hit NBC comedy series "NewsRadio."
"Joe Rogan: Live from the Tabernacle" is executive produced by Rogan, Jeff Sussman, Chandra Keyes, Frank Fertitta III, Lorenzo Fertitta and Dana White.
