CLL #868 (feat. Joe Rogan) – 01/26/1999 – Tuesday Night Show

This is a 100% Complete brand new merging of the only two known sources, both from Arizona oddly enough. Joe seems to be making his first known appearance, though he does say “it’s always fun” implying he has an appearance predating this one, perhaps on radio, perhaps on MTV? He has 3 more appearances, returning to the show in 2000, 2001 and his final booking in 2002, perhaps due to the double guest scheduling/mistake that found him paired with a cast member from ‘Survivor’ and he has one known appearance on MTV Loveline from March 7th 2000. Joe is promoting the final season of ‘Newsradio’ and this seems to be from before he started smoking and advocating for marijuana, which makes for an interesting snapshot of a different time in his life.
Edit: This is Joe’s 2nd of a total of five known appearances on CLL, we have now recovered his lost 1996 show and will be sharing it when possible.
From Wiki: Joseph James Rogan (born August 11, 1967) is an American stand-up comedian, color commentator, television host, actor, podcast host, and retired martial artist. He developed an interest in martial arts as a teenager and learned karate, kickboxing, and taekwondo, in which he became a black belt and a four-time state champion and a U.S. Open champion. He is black belt in no-gi Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Eddie Bravo and gi black belt under Jean Jacques Machado. A fan of comedy since his youth, Rogan began a career in stand-up in August 1988 in the Boston area, developing a blue comedy act. He moved to New York City two years later.
After relocating to Los Angeles in 1994, Rogan signed an exclusive developmental deal with Disney, appeared as an actor on the television sitcoms Hardball and NewsRadio, and worked in local comedy clubs. In 1997, he started working for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) as an interviewer and color commentator since 2002. Rogan released his first comedy special in 2000, and has since produced seven other specials. From 2001, he has been the host of several television shows, including Fear Factor, The Man Show, and Joe Rogan Questions Everything.
In 2009, Rogan launched his podcast The Joe Rogan Experience which has become one of the most popular podcasts available; in October 2015, it was downloaded 16 million times a month. Rogan is also an advocate of the legalization of cannabis, hunting, and overall physical and mental well-being.
LLT Notes: Drew calls Adam “homie” because he’s wearing his beanie in the studio. He’s wearing it because it’s cold outside.
Adam tells a quick story about being in New York City. Kevin and Bean had asked Adam to call in to the morning show and talk about being on Letterman. Adam agreed but he had to go into the back of the plane to call because they took the first class phone out. After he gets through and is live on the radio, an evil stewardess tells him to sit down. Adam was live on the air and argued with her. He sent her over the edge when he said “You’re standing up so how bad could it be.” Adam says he wished first class fliers should be given a badge to flash so they get first class service.
Drew mentions MTV didn’t decide to have Loveline the TV show on for another season the day before the deadline.
Adam yells at Drew for spelling out 1-888-not2late with the extra letter at the end.
Drew then asks if Adam wants him to say with out the E so it sounds like 1-888-not2lat.
Some girl complains about a comment Adam made the previous night. Joe comments on how crazy Andy Dick is.
A caller tries to compliment Adam on yelling at the stewardess but dies off halfway into it. He is an African American from Compton and Adam says he sounds too black to be black. Drew accuses him of attacking the caller and calls Adam too white.
Adam says one of two really good looking models on the plane he was on earlier that day offered to set him up with one of her model friends. He told her he had a girlfriend and walked away though.
Adam yells at Drew for doing horrible radio and not resetting a call after a break.
They gamble and Joe throws a buck down for Adam. He doesn’t keep his money in a wallet. The girl is a mess. Adam and Drew go at it for a minute. Joe goes to say something and he sounds just like Bobcat Goldthwait.
Adam yells at Drew for stepping on a joke and throws his pad at him. Adam and Joe make fun of Jenny McCarthy having a tv show on NBC that got canceled.
The Donna D’Errico intro is played and they talk about her being drunk and not being able to pronounce her name.
