UFC commentator Joe Rogan is no stranger to the flashing lights and attention that comes with being a celebrity. The 55-year-old, through hosting one of the biggest podcasts on the internet, along with his successful career as a UFC commentator, has proven himself to be one of the most influential figures of the current generation. But despite his massive success in these fields, it is Rogan‘s role as a stand-up comedian that has apparently contributed to most of the interesting stories that he narrates on his podcast.

While watching a clip of an NBA athlete who happened to pick up one of his opponents and walk off during a scuffle, The JRE host was reminded of a peculiar request he once received from a fan.

The stand-up comedian recalled how, after wrapping up a show, a particular fan came up to him and asked for a picture. Now you would wonder if that isn’t a normal occurrence for an individual of Rogan‘s stature and what really was weird about it? As he revealed, the photo request also came with a rather bizarre wish from the fan.

“I was doing pictures with fans once after a show. This fu****g big dude with like a weird mustache. He wanted to take a picture and goes ‘could I carry you in the picture?’” recalled Rogan.

Quite a weird request, considering that the comedian himself probably weighs close to 200 pounds.
