Rogan, a self-described “gear head,” was once sceptical about electric cars. But he has said that his Tesla has changed his mind about them.

Rogan’s entertainment career began with some reluctance. He convinced the owner of a club he worked at to let him perform a short comedy routine for fun. His stand-up eventually started to pay his bills, but it wasn’t his passion.

After making some comedy albums, he began to take roles on TV shows and in movies. Although this made him some good money early in his career, he saw it only as a way to make money. He never enjoyed doing scripted work.

Personal Life

It is not well-known what kind of relationship Rogan has with his birth family.

He married former cocktail waitress Jessica Ditzel in 2009. She had one daughter at that time from a previous relationship.

Their first daughter was born in May of 2008, and their second came along two years later.

They lived in Boulder, Colorado for a short period of time before moving to their current home in California.

Rogan loves hunting, and he encourages others to hunt for some of their meat instead of eating animals from factory farms.
