Bob Saget Details
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 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.
From directing MGM’s cult favorite feature film “Dirty Work,” to directing and producing the highly acclaimed ABC television movie, “For Hope,” to starring in the critically acclaimed, Paul Weitz off-Broadway play, “Privilege, to starring on Broadway in the Tony Award winning “The Drowsy Chaperone,” Bob loves his hyphenate ever-changing career choices.
In 2007 came the hugely successful DVD release of “Farce of the Penguins,” an R-rated comedy/documentary/love story, that he voiced-over, wrote, directed, and produced, with producer David Permut. And then came the hit NBC quiz show “1 VS 100,” where Bob ad-libbed his way through the one-hour prime time format. In 2008, “The Comedy Central Roast of Bob Saget” premiered to first place ratings while his sitcom, “Surviving Suburbia” aired on ABC. He’s currently on a new sold-out standup tour in theaters and colleges across North America.
