Joe Rogan unexpectedly ended up on an Austin stage for a surprise appearance at Big Laugh Comedy's show last week.
Big Laugh Comedy had billed Los Angeles comedian Tony Hinchcliffe as the night's main attraction. But Hinchcliffe, a frequent guest on Rogan's podcast, shocked audiences when he brought his buddy Rogan on partway through.
"When he brought out Joe, everyone erupted," said Big Laugh Comedy CEO Brandon Lewin.
Rogan's appearance was a surprise to Lewin too, who said he only found out about two hours before the show. Lewin said an even bigger surprise was the appearance of comedy legend Ron White.
White has not performed any live comedy in months, and had previously suggested he was retiring from comedy in a September episode of Rogan's podcast.

Rogan's performance for the audience included jokes about his family life and his experience with "cancel culture."
After teasing on his podcast for months, Rogan moved from Los Angeles to Austin in August. The MMA enthusiast and comedian recently teased he wanted to open his own comedy club in Austin. Rogan had performed years earlier at iconic Austin comedy spot Cap City Comedy before it closed due to the pandemic
Just when it looked like there were no comedy spots left in Austin, Big Laugh Comedy began doing downtown live shows at the Vulcan Gas Company last month. Lewin has told Austonia that COVID safety is a priority for the event. For the shows, the venue operates at 25% capacity and has assigned seating, among other safety measures.

Elon Musk has placed an order for a new, top-of-the-line private jet: a Gulfstream G700, Austonia has learned. Delivery is expected in early 2023.
Billed as offering “the most spacious cabin in history,” the aircraft seats 19 and soars above the rest of us at up to 51,000 feet. Base price: $78 million.
The Gulfstream G700 was awarded the 2022 International Yacht & Aviation Award for excellence in cabin design this year. (Gulfstream)
According to the Gulfstream website, the G700 can fly up to 7,500 nautical miles without refueling, enough range to fly nonstop from Austin to Hong Kong. Powered by two Rolls-Royce engines, it has its own Wi-Fi system, 20 oval windows measuring 28” x 21”, and two lavatories.
The sweet new ride will replace his current top-of-line private jet: a 2015 Gulfstream G650, the aircraft that has been made somewhat famous by the automated @elonjet Twitter account, which tracks and reports his personal aircraft’s movements using public data.

Musk has repeatedly championed “free speech” as a guiding ethic in his planned purchase of Twitter. Last December, Musk offered the teenager who built the @elonjet tracker $50,000 to shut it down, citing security concerns. It’s still up.
According to the @elonjet account, Musk’s jet last traveled to Austin, where it’s been since June 23. The associated data says that his flight to Austin burned $2,573 worth of aviation fuel and discharged 4 tons of carbon dioxide.
