Joe Rogan (formerly of “Fear Factor” fame and “Joe Rogan Questions Everything”) has taken to the airwaves on his podcast saying that if the state of California continues its restrictive conditions amid the COVID-19 pandemic, he’s seriously considering moving to Texas. Following news that Los Angeles County (in the state of California) will be extending its stay-at-home order through the month of July 2020, the popular podcaster said he is considering pulling up stakes.

California has ordered additional pandemic-related restrictions aside from those Rogan referenced in Los Angeles County, including the closure of all public universities for this fall’s semester. “Hey, I might move to Texas,” he said on his show on Wednesday, May 13, 2020. “If California continues to be this restrictive, I don’t know if this is a good place to live…” Warning, the language in the video clip below can be offensive to some.

Shared on The Official Joe Rogan Experience Clips YouTube channel, the video above features Rogan doing his popular podcast, speaking about what he regards as California’s shortcomings during the coronavirus pandemic. He identifies Texas as a premier choice for his potential move, but do we want Joe Rogan living here? He identified Austin, in the Texas Hill Country, as well as Dallas as potential relocation cities. However, he says that Houston’s summers make the Bayou City out of the question. In speaking with fellow comedian Bryan Callen, Rogan saw some appeal in the reopening of Texas and the size of gatherings that were going to be held. Callen mentioned a standup series he is booked for in Houston at the end May, noting the venue will allow for 200 to be seated in its 450-seat space. Are the Texas reopening guidelines enticing others such as Rogan to relocate for the same purpose? Is that something we’re prepared for should an influx of out-of-state residents deem the Lone Star State to be more inviting as a result?
