During the question-and-answer segment on his 2007 live album Shiny Happy Jihad, comedian Joe Rogan tells the audience that his time hosting the reality show Fear Factor is done. “I just want to do comedy,” he says. “But I’m a whore. If they offer me more money, I’ll come back.”
Well, four years later the folks at NBC might just come back to Rogan with an offer he can’t refuse. Entertainment Weekly broke the news that the network will reboot the ground-breaking reality show, wherein contestants are challenged to do incredibly horrendous things in order to win money.
And today, the Hollywood Reporter posted an item, quoting executive producer Matt Kunitz saying there’s a “good chance” Rogan will return. “That’s a conversation we’ll be having very soon.”
So, would do you think? Would you like to see Rogan host Fear Factor again? Or do you think he should stick to cranking out great live comedy and albums and DVDs and podcasting– like he’s been doing since he left NBC?
