Joe Rogan has been forced to postpone an upcoming comedy show after revealing that he tested positive for COVID-19.

Rogan, the famous podcast host, comedian and UFC commentator, announced on Wednesday that he recently tested for coronavirus after coming down with symptoms following a recent work trip.

According to Rogan, he isolated from his family after feeling “very weary,” then subsequently tested positive. A few days later, though, he said he felt better after taking a long list of what he claims were effective medicines.

“I got back from the road Saturday night feeling very weary,” Rogan said in an Instagram video. “I had a headache, and I just felt just run down. Just to be cautious, I separated from family, slept in a different part of the house and throughout the night I got fevers and sweats and I knew what was going on. I got up in the morning, got tested, and it turns out I got COVID. So we immediately threw the kitchen sink at it: all kinds of meds. Monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, Z-pack, prednisone – everything. I also got an NAD drip and a vitamin drip, and I did that three days in a row, and here we are on Wednesday, and I feel great.

“I really only had one bad day. Sunday sucked. Monday was better. Tuesday felt better than Monday, and today I feel good. I feel pretty f*cking good. That’s the good news. The bad news is we have to move the Friday show in Nashville. It’s going to move to Sunday, Oct. 24. That’ll be the new Nashville date. Apologies to everyone. Obviously not something I can control. It is what it is. Crazy times we’re living in, but a wonderful, heartfelt thank you to modern medicine for pulling us out so quickly and easily. My love to all of you. Thank you.”

Rogan, 54, did not reveal if his COVID-19 was the Delta variant. He also has not publicly disclosed whether he’s vaccinated. Earlier this year, Rogan said he doesn’t feel it’s necessary for young or healthy people to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

“I’m not an anti-vaxx person,” Rogan has said prior. “In fact, I said I believe they’re safe, and I encourage many people to take them. My parents were vaccinated.”

Rogan also recently said he would offer refunds to his comedy shows for unvaccinated customers who are no longer allowed entry because of local mandates.

A longtime UFC commentator, Rogan hasn’t called an event since UFC 264 in July, where Conor McGregor suffered a first-round doctor’s stoppage TKO loss to Dustin Poirier in the main event. Rogan was caught up in the post-fight controversy for interviewing McGregor in the octagon while his leg was broken.
