Joe Rogan hosts country star Oliver Anthony at his Austin club for surprise performance


Country star Oliver Anthony gave a surprise performance at Joe Rogan's Texas comedy club after being called to stage to the extreme delight of the crowd.

Rogan invited Anthony to his club, The Comedy Mothership, located on East Sixth Street, on Tuesday night. 

The popular podcaster had acquired the historic club as a standup comedy nightclub destination in 2022.

Audience members were unaware that Anthony was waiting in the wings. The songwriter became an instant sensation, when his song, 'Rich Men North of Richmond,' hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100. 

The song was first released on YouTube less than two weeks ago, making Anthony the first artist ever to rise to the top without any prior charting history.
