Joe Rogan Opens His Anti-Cancel Culture Club in Austin

March 08, 2023

“UNVAXXED SPERM” reads the poster held aloft by a woman standing outside the theater, and you know you’re in the right place: Joe Rogan’s new comedy club mecca. On Austin’s historic Sixth Street, Comedy Motherland enjoyed its opening night after two-and-a-half years of development. “I’m drunk and on mushrooms in my new club!” exclaimed Rogan while wearing a rather odd Obi-Wan-like sweater. The audience in attendance was pretty standard for Rogan shows, which means they over-index on the three Bs – bros, beards and ballcaps. But then when I knew I was moving here, and [Austin’s Capital City Comedy Club] was already closed.
