Standup comedian Joe Rogan brings his Strange Times Tour to Abbotsford Centre this summer, it was announced today.

He appears at the centre on Friday, Aug. 24 at 7:30 p.m., and it is currently his only show scheduled in B.C.

Rogan has been a standup comedian for more than 20 years. His fifth hour-long comedy special Joe Rogan: Triggered premiered on Netflix in October 2016.

Since 2002, Rogan has provided color commentary for the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) on Pay Per View, Spike Television, and FOX.

Rogan’s passion for MMA began with martial arts practice at the age of 13.

Within two years, the Boston native earned a black belt and soon became the Massachusetts full contact Tae Kwon Do champion four consecutive years.

By the age of 19, Rogan won the US Open Tae Kwon Do Championship and, as lightweight champion, went on to beat both the middle and heavyweight title-holders to obtain the Grand Championship.

Film credits include Here Comes The Boom (2012) and Zookeeper (2011).
