Yes, Bob Saget has starred in many successful television shows, including two of the most family-friendly shows network TV has ever produced (“Full House” and “Americas Funniest Home Videos”) but he’s also an out of his mind, standup comedian for over thirty years. From his HBO special “That Ain’t Right” to his scene-stealing cameos in “Entourage,” and “The Aristocrats,” it’s always effective as Saget embraces his dark side.
Bob starred on Broadway in the Tony Award winning “The Drowsy Chaperone,” was seen reprising the role of “Himself” on HBO’s hit series “Entourage” and he starred in his own documentary comedy series for A&E titled, “Strange Days with Bob Saget,” an exploration of unusual subcultures in America. He just completed filming his new one hour stand-up special at The Moore Theatre in Seattle. In the coming months, Bob is enjoying his standup touring and writing a book for It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins, for early 2014. It may be dirty.
