Episode #121 of the Joe Rogan Experience was released on September 22, 2015. The guest was comedian and actor Bill Burr. The episode was recorded in Rogan’s studio in Los Angeles, California.

The episode begins with Rogan and Burr discussing the recent controversy surrounding Burr’s appearance on the podcast “WTF with Marc Maron.” Maron had accused Burr of being a “misogynist” and a “racist.” Burr defended himself against these accusations, saying that he was not a misogynist or a racist, but that he did not always agree with the way that women and minorities are treated in society.

Rogan and Burr then discussed a variety of other topics, including their thoughts on the 2016 presidential election, the state of comedy, and the importance of free speech. The episode was well-received by fans of the show, and it was praised for its honest and open discussion of important issues.


The following is a transcript of the episode:

Joe Rogan: Alright, so I’m here with Bill Burr.

Bill Burr: What’s up, Joe?

Joe Rogan: What’s going on, man?

Bill Burr: Not much, man. Just sitting here, waiting to talk to you.

Joe Rogan: So, we’re going to talk about the Marc Maron thing.

Bill Burr: Sure.

Joe Rogan: What’s your take on that?

Bill Burr: Well, I think it’s a lot of bulls**t. I’m not a misogynist. I’m not a racist. I’m just a comedian. I say what I think is funny. And if people don’t like it, then they can go f**k themselves.

Joe Rogan: I agree with you. I think that people are too sensitive these days.

Bill Burr: Yeah, they’re all a bunch of snowflakes.

Joe Rogan: So, what do you think about the 2016 presidential election?

Bill Burr: I think it’s going to be a s**tshow.

Joe Rogan: Yeah, I think so too.

Bill Burr: I don’t know who I’m going to vote for.

Joe Rogan: Me neither.

Bill Burr: I think I’m just going to write in “None of the above.”

Joe Rogan: That’s probably the best option.

Bill Burr: Yeah.

Joe Rogan: So, what do you think about the state of comedy?

Bill Burr: I think it’s in a good place. There are a lot of great comedians out there right now.

Joe Rogan: Yeah, I agree.

Bill Burr: But I also think that there are a lot of comedians who are afraid to say what they really think.

Joe Rogan: Yeah, I think that’s true.

Bill Burr: I think that’s because they’re afraid of being labeled as a “misogynist” or a “racist.”

Joe Rogan: Yeah, I think that’s a problem.

Bill Burr: I think that comedians should be able to say whatever they want.

Joe Rogan: I agree with you.

Bill Burr: I think that’s important.

Joe Rogan: Yeah, I think so too.

Bill Burr: Alright, man. I gotta go.

Joe Rogan: Alright, man. Thanks for coming on.

Bill Burr: No problem, man.
