DELRAY BEACH – Joe Rogan continues to follow his instincts, and the world of stand-up comedy is better for him doing so.
Recently Rogan opened comedy club Comedy Mothership in Austin, Texas, billing it as a venue where comics don’t have to fear being cancelled.
Rogan built a podcasting empire by speaking his mind. Also a stand-up comedian, he realizes the world benefits when comics challenge the norm.
For the story below, Fox News interviewed patrons of the club to get their reactions to the club’s premise and its shows.
Today’s Stand-Up Spotlight also includes stories on Brian Posehn, Leanne Morgan and Billy Crystal.
Today is the first full day of spring. Let’s make it a funny one.

Is Joe Rogan’s Comedy Mothership good for comedy? Attendees weigh in
AUSTIN, Texas – Attendees of Joe Rogan’s new comedy club told Fox News whether they felt the anti-woke venue is good for comedy.
“It’s fantastic for comedy,” Brady, who came from Phoenix to attend the club’s third night open, said. “This is going to be the new home for comedy in America, not just here in Austin.”
Rogan — a hot-button podcaster, stand-up comic and UFC commentator — opened his own anti-woke comedy club called Comedy Mothership in Austin, Texas, on March 7 and performed an inaugural set that night.

In 2006, I took my father to see Billy Crystal’s balletic one-man show 700 Sundays. It was an extremely significant experience in my life, for many reasons.
If you’ve read my previous essays, you probably understand how much the history of comedy means to me. And you also likely get that I feel especially strongly about the artists with whom I’ve gone on a long journey. Today, I want to pay tribute to a comedian who embodies the history of comedy… and whose work I have a lot of history with.
