Joe Rogan is moving to Texas in search of “a little bit more freedom.”

Rogan announced the news of his relocation from Los Angeles to Texas Friday on his podcast The Joe Rogan Experience.

The move likely comes as little surprise to Rogan’s fans, given that the popular comedian and commentator has previously hinted at relocating to the Lone Star State, according to The Hill.

Rogan cited overpopulation, traffic, economic despair and his need for “a little bit more freedom” among the reasons for his decision.

The 52-year-old, who also is a UFC commentator, reportedly stands to save millions of dollars in taxes due to the move.

Rogan signed a deal in May with Spotify for more than $100 million to air his podcast exclusively on the streaming service beginning this September, according to The Wall Street Journal.

While the deal would be subject to a 13.3 percent income tax rate in California, Texas forgoes individual income taxes, resulting in $13 million in tax breaks, Newsweek reported.

Rogan retains ownership and editorial control of The Joe Rogan Experience, which reportedly brought in $30 million in revenue in 2019 on YouTube, according to Newsweek.

Rogan has not revealed where he will be based in Texas.


With celebrities eyeing Texan land with renewed interest, realtors have the potential for major new clients looking at expensive ranches and other luxury rural real estate. Celebrities coming from major West and East coast cities are more likely to lack experience buying land and knowledge of Texas, meaning they could start hunting for realtors with something as simple as a Google search.

Therefore, it’s all about using the right platforms to get your brokerage before the eyes of celebrity clients before anyone else does, which is where a land marketplace service like Land.US comes in handy.
