I’m a big Joe Rogan fan. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s Oprah for guys, whatever. I like it. I like his guests and find it to be an entertaining podcast. Outside of Eddie Bravo’s appearances, my favorite recurring guest is Joey Diaz.
Joey’s had an absolutely absurd life. From his journey’s from New Jersey to Colorado to jail for kidnapping, Joey has used his brilliant storytelling to become the funniest comedian you’ve never heard of.
I kinda skimmed over it, but yes, Joey Diaz has gone to jail for kidnapping. It happened in 1988, but it seems like it’s water under the bridge at this point:
No big deal. Just going to see the comedy show of the guy who kidnapped you 31 years ago. Just a normal Monday night. Chilling with your kidnapper:
“It’s not where you start…it’s where you finish.” There’s a lesson in that.
