Joe Rogan has officially opened a new comedy club in Austin, Texas.
After living in Los Angeles for nearly two decades, Rogan decided to leave for several reasons, including overcrowding and a severe homelessness problem. The longtime UFC commentator packed his bags and moved his family to Austin, where he’s been living since 2020.
When Rogan isn’t podcasting or commentating UFC fights, the 55-year-old performs standup comedy, which he’s been doing for over thirty years. Due to his vast amount of experience and connections, he decided to open a comedy club called “Comedy Mothership.”
On March 7, Rogan’s newest business venture officially opened. He made the announcement on Instagram with the caption:
“@comedymothership WE COME IN PEACE”
Rogan appeared on stage during opening night. While living his best life, drunk and high on mushrooms, the longtime UFC commentator had this to say:
“I’m drunk and on mushrooms in my new club! This is as high as I’ve ever been onstage. I need to connect with this moment. You can’t fire me from my own club, bitch!”
Joe Rogan details why he wanted to open a comedy club
Joe Rogan decided several years ago that he was willing to invest in a comedy club. One of his reasons was to hopefully build an active standup comedy community in Austin, Texas. During an appearance on This Past Weekend with Theo Von, Rogan had this to say seven months ago:
“I felt compelled to do it … I never wanted to own a comedy club, and I always felt like you just had to be nice to comedy club owners because you never want to be one of those people. But then when I knew I was moving here, and [Austin’s Capital City Comedy Club] was already closed. I was like, ‘Maybe I should buy a f–king club, and start a club.’ And that became my focus,”
Although it’ll take years to determine if Rogan’s comedy club will be successful, he’s off to an incredible start, with tickets selling out in minutes. It also helps that the longtime UFC commentator will frequently be performing along with many well-known comedians. At the end of the day, everybody can use a good laugh.

Great Entrepreneurship! when you have tapped into self-perpetuating “success” money; why not roll out your depravity to the masses via physical properties that the youth of next generation are guaranteed to frequent!!. (- SARCASM).
