Funny, but not his best performance

Normally I'm a big fan of Joe's comedy, but I wasn't feeling this one.

He starts out with typical anti-Trump jokes (which we've all heard 100x before), then anti-Hillary, then anti-government. It's cool. It's just comedy. But it's not new material.

The rest of his performance is a mix between examples of how life is bizarre, how weed is getting legalized, imitations of women, and overdrawn apologies about how he didn't want to offend anyone. It misses the mark, and we've heard this all before, especially from Joe. If you listen to his podcasts, he talks about this stuff incessantly.

There were some funny moments because of Joe's expressive nature, but I feel like I couldn't relate to this performance at all. In my opinion, some of his best work isn't when he's critiquing how bizarre things are to him, but when his comedy is bizarre. No one thinks covering up your nipples is strange. No one thinks women giving birth is either. This Netflix special is like a rehash from both his "Talking Monkeys in Space" and "Triggered" material.

Not a natural comedian

He works hard and has been doing this for a long time. You can tell he's well prepared but, he's just not that funny. His delivery is overly shouty to the point of being annoying. He has strange body language sometimes, like how he grips the mic very tightly and holds his elbow up and out, it's like he's flexing his forearm at the crowd the whole time... it's weird, like a nervous comic thing but he's supposed to be this long term vet of the business and the way he talks about comedy on his podcast you'd think he was in the top tier of stand up comedy. All that could be forgiven though if not for one thing, his material is pretty bland and at times very shallow. If you've seen his podcast you've heard all of these jokes before. To quote Joe himself "there's an originality problem". I love his podcast, enjoy his UFC commentating, actually liked Newsradio, but have never been a fan of his stand up. I keep trying to give it a chance because of how he talks about the "process" of creating standup like he's an all time great but I constantly get disappointed but what he puts out on stage. He clearly doesn't have a lot of self awareness when it comes to his standup abilities (dunning kruger effect in action) and I'm starting to think the majority of his comedy fans (and high ratings) are coming from his die hard podcast followers who are more than a little biased. Watch for yourself though... always.

Has some highlights

I like Joe Rogan's podcast and was curious to see him as a comedian. He really isn't bad. But a lot of it wasn't really funny. Not offensive just not funny. One thing that I found hilarious was the part about vegans and animals. And this has nothing to do with me being against vegans. I am for saving animals and admire them. I liked how Joe Rogan even said that most vegans are good, an he said it in a pretty fun way. I loved all the other jokes on the topic as well as his whole body language. I wold say that difference between cat and dog personalities is a common joke but he did it in a very special way. And this topic was a big part of the stand up so I can say I enjoyed most of it.
