Joe Rogan

Television viewers mostly know Rogan from his starring role as of Joe Garelli, the resident electrician at WNYX radio, on the comedy series NewsRadio (1995-99), as well as his brief appearance on the series Hardball.

Rogan's television appearances for standup include Caroline's Comedy Hour, MTV's Half-Hour Comedy Hour, and Comedy from the Danger Zone, just to name a few. Rogan recorded some of his standup comedy performances on his debut comedy album, I'm Gonna Be Dead Someday, for Warner Bros. Records.

Performing standup comedy in clubs across the United States has helped Rogan appreciate the steady work schedule of a television series that tapes in one city. Standup comedy is the best job in the world, he says. I can speak my mind, let off steam and get paid for it, but working on a series allows me a different kind of creativity, and it's a chance to work with a very talented group of people.

Rogan was born in Newark, New Jersey, raised in Boston, and now lives in Los Angeles. In his spare time, Rogan enjoys playing pool and honing his standup act at various comedy clubs. In addition, he is an avid martial-arts enthusiast and holds a second-degree black belt in tae kwon do. He was a four-time Massachusetts state champion, and was U.S. Open Lightweight Champion and Grand Champion in all weight classes in 1987.
