I thought it was pretty good, but then again I've heard a lot of his stuff, so I may be a little bias in my like or praising of it.

There were a few things that had me rolling, though.

I didn't think it was funny at all but I guess that was just me. It seemed to me like he was preaching. I like Joe commentating for UFC though.

I like Joe as a commentator, but not so much as a comedian. I don't know exactly what it is. He lacks his own unique style, I guess. Seems like I knew a lot of guys like him in high school or something.

I think Joe is at his best when he's dealing with hecklers--I mean he's really good at cutting people down. His routine and delivery doesn't do it for me though. I think he tries to be a little too animated, and his material is just so-so.

lol who else does comedy like that? ive seen his standup before and granted he has potential to do better, i wont lie, but i think some of you are just offended by the evolution/religion piece and if so thats pretty narrow minded, i wont get into that further and give yall the benefit of the opinion, but hes funnier than some of that crap everyone thinks is funny like dane cook or those white comedians who use subtle dry humor

everyone needs to see this video of mencia vs rogan if you havnt already

Seen it already. Definitely not offended by the religious undertones. I believe Darwin 100% and have supported his theories openly on these boards. Not to mention in my every day real life. Also have openly admitted to being an agnostic on the boards. Religious discussions are a no-no obviously, so don't go there. Just because I don't like his standup I don't agree with his opinions?

Dane Cook is a douche, too.

That is all.

Joe's bit about pot and getting high gets really tiring. I'll admit that. Most comedians have some sort of drug/alcohol material that they use, though.

I guess it just gets old.

No not at all, but the "anti-religion" peice seems to be peoples main problem with open minded comedians like Rogan. Its not even anti-religious and its completely blown out of proportion. I said I'm giving the ppl benefit of the opinion (meaning what you said above) but it would be an extremely narrow reason not to like it is all.

And yes, Dane Cook needs his mouth sewn shut.

Not a huge fan of Rogan's comedy, but at least it's better than Mencia's.

(As for Dane Cook, he reminds me of Louis CK for some reason. Oh, wait: link)

LOL the thread title tricked me. When I read it, I thought it was going to be a link to a video of Joe Rogan training in kick boxing or something. I've been spending too much time trolling the news forum.
