    One of the rabbit ears channels is running this old show.
    Pretty wild to see Joe Rogan as a kid.
    I used to love this show back in the 90s
    Any other fans?

    Tune into News Radio and you'll see an even younger version of Joe.
    Fear Factor was OK.
    He was terrible as a replacement on the Man Show. Adam Corolla and Jimmy Kimmel were funny on it. Rogan and his partner, not so much.
    His podcast/radio show/whatever it is paints him as a much cooler guy than I'd perceived him as in the past.

    (I am not so naive as to believe the show was totally non-scriped, btw)

    Never got way into the show, but I like Joe Rogan in general. Seems like a cool guy to have a few beers with. Or, I guess he's a pothead, isn't he? He'll have to partake of that alone. I did my time with that stuff.

    I never watched Fear Factor or even heard of Joe Rogan until his podcast became popular. I watched on YT for years. The switch to the spotify platform left me out in the cold. I really miss the show.

    This was also on the epi last night

    It just made me laugh, rats don't bother me in the least.
    If you've spent any time at all around pet rats...:rolleyes:
    And, those are obviously domesticated rats, they just want a cheeto :p

    I couldn't get into the "eating disgusting things" challenges. Some of the other challenges were interesting to watch.

    I’ve always liked Rogan’s and Doug Stanhope’s comedy, but during the time when they did The Man Show, both had gone a little too far into the “dark” comedy. More trying to shock or make the audience mad, than making a point and being funny.
