Rogan chokes out a crazy guy at comedy club
In this raw clip we see UFC commentator Rogan conversing with a man next to a parking lot just inside of The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. The man appears to be getting on Rogan’s nerves when they debate the future, open borders and immigration to the United States. He maintains that people immigrate to the U.S. without passports and “walk right across the border [from Mexico or Canada] every day,” much to Rogan’s dismay.
The situation escalates as Rogan calls the man out for “not being rational,” to which the guy responds with high pitched, almost hysterical laughter and saying “f*ck you dude,” as he reaches out and touches Joe, clearly irritating the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt further. Rogan responds by saying “touch me again and I’ll choke you out on camera.” The man tempts fate and touches Rogan again only to be snapped down into a standing guillotine choke which he quickly taps to.
After the situation calms down Joe Rogan remarks that “we learned more from this little altercation than we could from talking to a normal person for hours and hours,” which seems to be very accurate.
