Talking Monkeys In Space (Explicit)
by Joe Rogan
Released: Mar 2010
Label: Comedy Central
When standup star Joe Rogan turns screechy ("Pulling Out Doesn't Work"), he channels Sam Kinison; when he dips into satire via caricature ("Dr. Phil and His Sh*tty Advice"), it's Bill Hicks. But make no mistake: Dude is a true original, a trash-talking, East Coast goombah in love with psychedelics and mixed martial arts who is far smarter and more radical than he seems. And like his hero, Hunter S. Thompson, he's a moralist at heart, one dropping wonderful nuggets of truth, like the bit towards the end of his set equating zoos with prisons and how humans are deluded if they think otherwise.
