The Joe Rogan Experience – Episode 1778
Joey Diaz is a stand-up comedian, actor and host of the podcast “Uncle Joey’s Joint.”
This episode isn’t really an interview. It’s three and a half hours of two old friends just shooting the shit and catching up on life. The conversation drifts and wanders over a myriad of subjects and a lot of it is really entertaining.
We learn that Joe Rogan and I have the same taste in booze. (So, Joe! Hit me up. Let’s grab some whiskey! No ice, no mixers.)
Certainly the gold in this episode is about 45 minutes in when Rogan and Diaz start talking about coming up as comedians at the Comedy Store in LA. Here they reminisce and discuss what that life is like and drop some wisdom for aspiring comedians. They share stories about favorite comedians that were influential in their lives and careers. There are really interesting behind the scenes stories and hilarious anecdotes.
Then it’s off to the races again covering everything from Rolling Stone concerts to Clint Eastwood. Both men are fighting fans and there’s some great discussion about the sport, and some great footage of Tyson just dominating.
