Joe Rogan: I didn't enjoy hosting 'Fear Factor,' I enjoyed the money

By Christopher Rocchio, 07/14/2008 

Joe Rogan claims he hosted Fear Factor simply to scare-up some cash.

"I enjoyed the money, but I didn't enjoy doing the show," Rogan told The Denver Post in a Friday report. 

Rogan hosted the NBC reality series throughout its broadcast run -- from its Summer 2001 first-season debut until its Summer 2006 sixth-season finale.

"It was boring, and after a while, it was mindless," Rogan told The Post.  "It's not something I would look forward to, but it was a great paycheck."

Rogan most recently served as host for Game Show in My Head, which CBS ordered earlier this year.

The Punk'd-like hidden-camera game show -- a British import from Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg's Katalyst Films -- will follow contestants as they go about their daily life in the city before being prompted via an earpiece by Rogan, who will instruct them to "perform crazy, outrageous and often embarrassing tasks" in public for the chance to win "big money."  If they fail to perform one task, they'll go home empty-handed.

"It's actually very funny," Rogan told The Post.  "But again, these are things I enjoy doing."

Another thing Rogan said he enjoys doing is working the stand-up circuit.

"I love creating new material. I love performing, working on bits, honing them and seeing them evolve and grow. I don't ever think of it as work," Rogan told The Post.  "As a career and as far as what I'm known for, it's that other stuff, but it definitely enhances my comedy."
