According to the Hollywood Reporter’s Top Comedians chart, Joe Rogan is for the first time in the first place for the week. Is it all because of Elon Musk?
With Kevin Hart being second in the same list, this shows how popular Joe Rogan has become especially over the last month. The last month included the famous Elon Musk interview. For anyone who hasn’t heard already, in this interview Elon Musk smoked weed and this caused the stock of Tesla to drop significantly for a short period, before going back to the same price. After that a few other events occurred with Elon Musk but the point is that this interview attracted a lot of attention and therefore Joe Rogan got that attention too.
His podcast is actually excellent, including tons of guests, and although sometimes it is not as “smart” as i would like, it is still entertaining. Joe Rogan as a comedian is a completely separate thing in my opinion.
Back to the point though, Elon Musk boosted the popularity of the podcast by being himself and also smoking weed, which is and was legal at the time at the place of filming. Here on Qul Mind we have discussed weed before and it really isn’t a big deal, since from many studies there are mostly positive results. It can have many health benefits.
Next there was the McGregor fight much more recently that Joe Rogan also covered, thus a lot of attention from a lot of different people. As a result he ends up being more popular than Kevin Hart. At least for a week.
