Lady Ballers

Podcast giant Joe Rogan was the inspiration for Daily Wire co-founder Jeremy Boreing to make “Lady Ballers,” which is now the number one streaming movie in America.

Boreing said during a recent interview with Tim Pool that it was a comment made last September by Rogan on his popular podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” that encouraged him to make the company’s first comedy film. Rogan, complaining that few had the courage to make “hardcore comedy movies anymore,” he suggested that The Daily Wire might be the only company willing to do it.

Boreing said that he viewed Rogan’s comment as “a challenge and a responsibility.”

“You would have to have the right people with the right amount of balls,” Rogan said. “And I bet it would be hugely successful.”

“Do you know what would have to happen? You would have to do one on like a right-wing streaming platform like The Daily Wire.”

Boreing said people sent him Rogan’s comments, at it really “struck” him.

“People send you that, ‘Oh, Joe Rogan mentioned The Daily Wire,’ you know, they send it to you, but it really struck me,” Boreing said. “And I thought, this is kind of a challenge and a responsibility.”

“If it is true that only The Daily Wire could do this, then it stands to reason that The Daily Wire must do this,” he concluded.

Lady Ballers premiered a week ago on December 1, and quickly became one of the most popular streaming movies in the country, according to review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.
