Saget has starred in many successful television shows, including two of the most family-friendly shows that network TV has ever produced, "Full House" and "America’s Funniest Home Videos.” He’s also been performing as an out-of-his-mind, stand-up comedian for over 30 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.
Saget’s current tour, the “Rated R-ish “Bob Saget LIVE”, makes its Florida debut on Sunday, March 13, at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Tampa.
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 Saget shows no signs of stopping. Ever.
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. Then came the hit NBC quiz show "1 VS 100," where Saget ad-libbed his way through the one-hour prime time format. In 2008, "The Comedy Central Roast of Bob Saget" premiered to the second highest ratings of all TV that night, second to the Olympics. Last year his sitcom, "Surviving Suburbia" aired on ABC.
For many years now, Saget 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.
In 2010, he shot episodes of “Strange Days with Bob Saget,” a comedy documentary series he starred in for The Arts and Entertainment Network. In the series, Bob explored unusual subcultures throughout America: he joined a motorcycle club (riding in a sidecar from Nashville to Daytona), looked for Bigfoot with fellow 'Squatchers' in the Pacific Northwest, joined a frat at Cornell, explored the world of backyard professional wrestling, went to a summer camp with 14 year olds, and got 'lost in Las Vegas' Hunter S. Thompson-style.
