Ask a Professional Comedian: Joe Rogan
Q: Hey Joe, I love this latest special. The JRE podcast you started about 3 years ago has blown up to be one of the most popular comedy podcasts available, reaching so many different people all over the globe (I write this as someone from the Isle of Skye, I’m a big fan!). This must have surprised you- how long do you feel you will keep pumping them out? Is it still something you imagine doing into the future? Oh and UK dates soonish? I’d love to see you live. Powerful, Joe Rogan!
I love doing the podcast and I’ve got no plans to stop soon. There may come a day in the future where I’m tired of it and I want to do something different, but for now, I love it.
Q: Hey Joe, if you could change anything about this special, what would it be and why?
As for my special, I wouldn’t change anything about it. I think I
could probably do it better if I was doing it today, but then again I
could do what I’m doing today better in a year or so as well. It’s a
part of the grand scheme of progression; if you continue to work and pay attention to your work you’ll improve, and there’s no way to
improve unless you’ve put in that work.
Part of that work involves releasing your work and then deciding what you like and don’t like about it and improving from there. So in a nutshell, I wouldn’t change anything about anything I’ve ever done ever, because even if I didn’t like it as a finished product that’s what’s made me who I am today, and that’s what’s going to make me what I’ll be a year from now and so on, and so on…
It never ends until it ends.
