Joe Rogan is host of the high stakes game show "Fear Factor" on NBC.

Previously, Rogan hosted the successful reality show for six seasons on the network, from 2001 – 2006. Prior to "Fear Factor," Rogan played Joe Garrelli, the resident electrician, on the hit NBC comedy series "NewsRadio." He also recently starred in the movie "Zookeeper" opposite Kevin James.

Since 2002, Rogan has provided color commentary for the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) on Pay Per View and Spike Television. Rogan's passion for MMA began with martial arts practice at the age of 13. Within two years, the Boston native earned a black belt and soon became the Massachusetts full contact Tae Kwon Do champion for four consecutive years. By the age of 19, Rogan won the US Open Tae Kwon Do Championship and as lightweight champion, went on to beat both the middle and heavyweight title-holders to obtain the Grand Championship.

Rogan's other true love is standup comedy. As a standup comedian for more than 20 years, Rogan has honed an inquisitive and intense comedic style. He exudes a mad joy for life in all its insanity and revels in the art of standup comedy to explore the world with raw honesty. This has made him a national headliner, a favorite at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, and a guest on several late night shows, including "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and "Jimmy kimmel Live." In 2000, Rogan released his debut comedy album, "I'm Gonna Be Dead Someday," on Warner Bros. Records. In April of 2007, he released a follow-up CD, "Shiny Happy Jihad," on Comedy Central Records. Rogan's debut DVD "Joe Rogan Live" aired on Showtime in the spring of 2007.

Rogan's second one-hour comedy special, "Talking Monkeys in Space," premiered on Spike TV on June 20, 2009 and was a ratings smash. "Talking Monkeys in Space" then made its Comedy Central premiere on March 27, 2010 and was released on CD and DVD on March 30.

One of the most popular comedy podcasts on iTunes, "The Joe Rogan Experience" is a twice-weekly long-form conversation with guests. Fans can watch the podcast on Ustream and the podcast can also be heard on Sirius XM's "The Virus" channel.

Rogan resides in Los Angeles and regularly performs stand-up locally and internationally.
