Joe Rogan Says That Wokeness “Murdered” Comedy Movies

It’s been a little over a month since Joe Rogan was the headline of every single media outlet.

First, it was singer Neil Young threatening Spotify for keeping Rogan’s podcast, due to the “spread of COVID misinformation.”

Of course, that resulted in Spotify removing Young’s music, and keeping Rogan’s podcast.

Then, there was the firestorm surrounding Rogan, after the discovery that he had said the N-word a number of times in past podcasts, which resulted in Spotify and Rogan removing more than 70 episodes from the platform.

With that being said, the media personality and famed podcaster is still kickin’ it, putting out episode after of episode of his his league leading podcast, The Rogan Experience.

In his most recent podcast, he brought up an interesting point about modern day movie culture, as he brought comedian and actor Tom Papa on the show with him.

The two asked themselves, “when was the last good comedy movie released?”

That’s when Rogan said:

“Wokeness killed the comedy movie, in a way… do woke people make comedy? Is there a woke comedy movie?

Is there even an attempt at a politically correct comedy movie? They just stopped making comedy movies.”

Come to think of it, he’s not wrong.

It’s been nearly a decade since the good ol’ days of movies like Step BrothersTalladega NightsThe Hangover, and so on.

You just don’t see the kind of humor that the majority of average people love anymore, and it very well could be because filmmakers are terrified of getting cancelled.

Last year, Joe had a similar conversation about films like Superbad, Step Brothers, Borat and more with fellow comedian Joe List.
