REVIEW: Joe Rogan – Triggered

UFC commentator and podcast pioneer Joe Rogan reminds everybody how he got so famous in the first place, with his hilarious new Netflix Comedy special Triggered.

Regular readers of this site would know that I’m a pretty big fan of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast. In fact, ‘pretty big fan’ is probably playing it down a fair bit. Yet, if I’m asked to rattle off a list of my favourite stand-up comedians, or asked to rank comedians in any way (I’m not sure who is asking me to do these things, but still), Rogan’s name rarely makes the list.

One thing you are sure to get with the Joe Rogan Experience is a lengthy chat. Episodes regularly hit the three hour mark, and it’s not uncommon for Joe to have to cut the conversation off due to that magic three┬áhour mark being reached. There have been times, though, when Joe just kept the show rolling, causing the episodes to be broken up into two parts. Episode 419 was one of those occasions, clocking in a touch over four hours. That’s one long conversation.
