“There was essentially no way to have a career other than teaching,” Joe stated in an earlier interview. “And so when I started to get into stand up comedy, I realized, ‘Oh wow, I could make a living doing this.’ Like there’s actually a real path, like there’s guys I know that make a living doing this. While everyone I know in fighting is broke or they’re slurring their words. Guys from the gym would be in gym wars and now they’re all f*cked up, they don’t know where they parked their car. There was a lot of that sh*t that was scaring the f*ck out of me.” Rogan stated during a recent podcast when asked why he didn’t become a fighter.
