"I've made a bunch of errors in promoting what I do best," says comedian Joe Rogan, who is perhaps still best known as the host of Fear Factor and for playing Joe Garrelli on the sitcom NewsRadio. He currently hosts a popular podcast called The Joe Rogan Experience. "It's a weird situation where a lot of these people are coming to see me in the clubs because I'm famous from television. [They] come up to me and say, 'I had no idea you were going to be that funny!''' Rogan covers a wide range of topics onstage. "I tell stories and I talk about life, just commenting on things," he explains. Those things can include everything from daily annoyances to terrorism. "Osama Bin Laden was like a character in a Batman comic. He was a billionaire genius who hated us. He lived underground. He used to work for the good guys, but then he switched over to the dark side. They almost capture him, but he gets away and leaves behind a threatening tape. Is this a Stan Lee production?"
