Talking about his early career, Seth Rogen said, "As soon as I realized you could be funny as a job, that was the job I wanted". So, at the age of 12, he enrolled in a comedy workshop taught by Mark Pooley and started performing.

Although Freaks and Geeks only aired for a season, his performance was impressive and was chosen to be a lead in the show Undeclared. Unfortunately, the network did not think that he was leading male material. But the undefeated Rogen knew that he would be a good writer.

His big break came in 2004. Rogen was selected to become a staff writer for Da Ali G Show, for which he received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination. The 2007 movie Knocked Up is also regarded as his break out movie.
