Joe Rogan at the Northern Jubilee Auditorium Sept. 8th

Published

on

You’ve seen Joe Rogan in a lot of places … in his teens, a champion fighter, then later, on television in a variety of roles. 

“One of the most complex and exciting stand-ups working in America today. Like an idealistic hippy stuck inside the body of a testosterone-pumped US marine. He’s been likened to late great US comedians such as Bill Hicks and Sam Kinison, but although he exhibits a similar brand of furious indignation, his observations and revelations are entirely his own. His angry, insightful act is an absorbing battle between his raw libertarian instincts and his refined liberal sensibilities.” –William Cook, The Guardian

A standup comedian for more than 20 years, Joe Rogan sells out theatres internationally with his inquisitive and intense comedic style. Rogan released his third hour special, Joe Rogan Live From The Tabernacle, exclusively through his website on December 18, 2012. He starred in the hour specials Talking Monkeys in Space (2009) now available on CD & DVD and Joe Rogan Live (2007) now available on DVD, and released the CD’s Shiny Happy Jihad (2007) and I’m Gonna Be Dead Someday (2000).

Rogan is host of The Joe Rogan Experience, featuring long form conversation with guests that is one of the most popular comedy podcasts on iTunes. Fans can watch the podcast on Ustream and the podcast can also be heard on Sirius XM’s “The Virus” channel on Saturdays at Noon ET and Sundays at 5:00 AM and 6:00 PM ET.

Joe’s Syfy TV series, Joe Rogan Questions Everything, premiered on July 24 with 1.3 million viewers as the highest rated Syfy reality series in five months. A life- long unexplained paranormal mystery-addict, the show features Joe venturing into unknown worlds and untapped territories to search for answers to life’s most startling theories.

Since 2002, Rogan has provided color commentary for the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) on Pay Per View, Spike Television and now on FOX. Rogan’s passion for MMA began with martial arts practice at the age of 13. Within two years, the Boston native earned a black belt and soon became the Massachusetts full contact Tae Kwon Do champion four consecutive years. By the age of 19, Rogan won the US Open Tae Kwon Do Championship and as lightweight champion went on to beat both the middle and heavyweight title- holders to obtain the Grand Championship.

Rogan was recently seen in the film Here Comes The Boom and he starred in the film Zookeeper (2011). Rogan hosted the high stakes game show Fear Factor, on NBC in 2011/12 and previously for six seasons from 2001-2006. Prior to Fear Factor, Rogan played Joe Garrelli, the resident electrician on the hit NBC comedy series NewsRadio.

Rogan resides in Los Angeles and regularly performs stand- up locally and internationally.

Junos not naming replacement nominees after Hedley withdraws from 3 categories

Published

on

The Juno Awards will not be naming replacement nominees now that embattled rockers Hedley have withdrawn from consideration for group of the year, pop album of the year and the fan choice prize.

The Vancouver pop-rockers said they did not “wish to be a distraction at Canadian music’s biggest night” as they continue to face sexual misconduct allegations posted by anonymous social media users.

The band — which has a total of 31 Juno nominations dating back to 2006 and two wins — said in a statement Monday that it was soldiering on with its cross-Canada tour but preparing “to take responsibility and talk about how we have let some people down and what we intend to do about it.”

The band’s members previously called allegations involving young fans “unsubstantiated” but acknowledged they “engaged in a lifestyle that incorporated certain rock ‘n’ roll cliches.”

The Junos said in a statement released Tuesday that no alternates would be added to the categories affected by Hedley’s withdrawal because voting began Feb. 9.

A spokeswoman for the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences said no one from the organization was available for an interview.

The Junos statement did not elaborate on whether voters who had already submitted a ballot in support of Hedley would be asked to change their vote.

It was last Wednesday that Hedley first responded to the allegations that had been posted online. By Friday, the group was dropped by its management team, blacklisted by scores of radio stations, and abandoned by the bands who were booked as its tour openers.

In a statement released Monday, the band said it wouldn’t be cancelling the shows it has booked through March 23 because “the easy thing to do would be to cancel the tour and hide.”

“We want to ensure that everyone understands our collective commitment to change, and to do better, is real. Saying a rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle was to blame — or saying certain things happened because we were younger — isn’t good enough. We owe it to our families, our crew, our friends — and most of all, our fans — to do and be better,” the statement reads, adding that the band will be saying more “in the coming days.”

The former MuchMusic darlings — fronted by Jacob Hoggard and including Dave Rosin, Tommy Mac and Jay Benison — played in Barrie, Ont., on Monday and were scheduled to hit Ottawa on Tuesday, Laval, Que., on Wednesday, Halifax on Friday and Summerside, P.E.I., on Saturday.

According a video posted to YouTube on Sunday and purportedly shot at Hedley’s concert Friday night in Brandon, Man., Hoggard thanked the crowd for “believing in us.”

“Thank you for sticking with us through the good times and the bad, the ups and downs, the highs and the lows, you’ve been there and that’s the only reason why we’re still here,” Hoggard said, although he did not reference the allegations the band faces.

“Thank you for your support, thank you for your love, we need it and it means the world to us.”

This year’s Junos show is to be staged in Vancouver on March 25. Crooner Michael Buble will host.
