While he's most widely known as the sweetly neurotic father on the classic sitcom Full House and the wisecracking host of America's Funniest Home Videos, Bob Saget has another side that fans of his stand-up comedy know and love. After his outrageously profane performances on HBO's Entourage and in the hit documentary The Aristocrats, Saget's brand of out-of-his-mind scatological humor has been unleashed on an unsuspecting public. Now, with his new memoir, Dirty Daddy, the Grammy-nominated performer delivers uproarious, uncensored yet disarmingly heartfelt stories from his life and career. Saget is joined by bestselling author Kelly Oxford (Everything Is Perfect When You're a Liar) for what promises to be a hilarious and insightful discussion of humor. Learn More

COWBOY BEBOP: THE MOVIE
COWBOY BEBOP: TENGOKU NO TOBIRA
2001, Sony Pictures, 120 min, Japan, Dir: Shinichiro Watanabe
This is anime that’s as far from Miyazaki as Hitchcock is from Chaplin, with all the emotion and visceral impact of any great live-action film. Set on a terraformed Mars, in a city that blends aspects of Manhattan, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Cairo and Paris, Cowboy Bebop mixes past and future machinery, architecture and graphics with urban realism – in a story that’s part film noir, part spaghetti Western and part HK actioner. Beautifully voiced in English, the script and characters entirely live up to the amazing design by Shiho Takeuchi. Special mention must be made of the jazzy, bluesy, rock score by Japanese composer Yoko Kanno – like the soundtrack of the best ’70s cop show never made.
