Stand-Up Comedian, Star of "Full House", "America's Funniest Home Videos", and "Fuller House"
Yes, Bob Saget starred on 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, stand-up comedian for over thirty years.

Yes, Bob Saget starred on 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, stand-up comedian for over thirty years. From his scene-stealing cameos in Half Baked, Dumb & Dumberer, the Show Time series Huff, The Aristocrats, or HBO’S Entourage, it’s always effective as Saget embraces his dark side.
From directing MGM’s cult favorite 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, Bob Saget shows no sign of stopping. His decidedly adult brand of comedy, which deals with life as a single dad, dating, divorce and any questions you had about Full House, will leave you looking at Saget in a whole new light.
Bob was on Blowin Up, Jamie Kennedy’s MTV series starring his friends Jamie and Stu Stone, where his music video, Rollin’ With Saget, first appeared. The video won a Fuse TV award.
In 2007 came the 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 Thinkfilm, who made The Aristocrats. Farce of the Pengunis is narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, and stars the voices of Christina Applegate, Lewis Black, Tracy Morgan, Mo’Nique, Bob, and fifty of comedy’s biggest names.
Bob’s recently successful one hour HBO special, BOB SAGET: THAT AIN’T RIGHT, was shot at NYU, at the Skirball Theater. It’s currently released everywhere on DVD. He’s following it up with sold-out stand-up shows in theaters and colleges across North America.
In 2007, Bob starred on Broadway to glowing notices in the hit Tony Award Winning musical comedy, The Drowsy Chaperone. he considers it one of the best experiences of his professional life.
For many years now, Bob has been a proud board member of the Scleroderma Research Foundation. He co-produces and hosts “Cool Comedy Hot Cuisine” events in Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco.
The Comedy Central Roast of Bob, August 16, 2008, premiered to the second highest ratings of all TV at the time, only beat by the Olympics.
His 2013 one-hour stand-up special, “That’s What I’m Talkin’ About,” was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album. The special was filmed at The Moore Theatre in Seattle, premiered on Showtime in May 2013 and is now available as a CD, DVD, download, and on Netflix.
Bob’s first book is a New York Times Best Seller – “DIRTY DADDY: The Chronicles of a Family Man Turned Filthy Comedian” was released on April 8, 2014 to critical acclaim with Vanity Fair calling it, “Hilarious and at times heartbreaking.” It’s available in audio as well, recorded by Bob himself.
January 2016, Bob finished a very fulfilling and successful 9-week run on Broadway in the Tony-nominated play, “Hand To God,” playing the part of a Lutheran minister, Pastor Greg. That year he also co-starred in a film “A Stand-Up Guy,” and finished his run on the first and then the second season of the mega-hit Netflix series, “Fuller House,” which premiered on Netflix worldwide. Season 3 of “Fuller House” is presently shooting and Bob is once again having a great deal of fun with his TV family.
