After a year's delay, Joe Rogan is coming to Tampa.
The comic and podcaster will perform “The Sacred Clown” tour at Tampa’s Amalie Arena Aug. 27. Tickets start at $35.75 on the Amalie Arena website. His show begins at 8 p.m. Rogan’s other Florida stops include Orlando’s Amway Center Aug. 28 and the BB&T Center in Sunrise on Aug. 26.
The Joe Rogan Experience is the most popular podcast worldwide with over 190 million monthly downloads. From talks about weed and DMT to interviews with Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Rogan has range. He also adds some punching commentary for the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship).
But while colorful, his comedy is also controversial.
Most recently, he took heat for questioning why young, healthy people would get vaccinated in April. And yeah, he said he would tell a 21-year-old not to get one. Of course, once Dr. Anthony Fauci corrected him, he said he is not anti-vax.
Still, in the past, he’s made other questionable claims. Like the time he said hijabs don't align with women’s rights. And the time he said members in the transgender community use their status to receive praise.
