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
Quotes & Highlights
“Private Lessons more than confirms the rising talent of 33-year-old Belgian writer-director Joachim Lafosse.” —Variety
Presented by the Consulate General of Belgium in Los Angeles, In Cooperation with Flanders Image and Wallonie Bruxelles Images, With the Support of E.L.M.A. (European Languages and Movies in America):
Los Angeles Premiere of Private Lessons (2008, Haut et Court, 105 min.). At once wickedly funny and acerbically tense, director Joachim Lafosse’s coming-of-age tale centers on Jonas (an excellent Jonas Bloquet), an aspiring tennis player who is rapidly flunking high school. In order to better his grades and ensure the continuation of his career on the tennis courts, Jonas seeks the tutorship of an older boy, Pierre. But Pierre has more wisdom to impart to Jonas than meets the eye, and the duo’s “private lessons” quickly move from academics to more-taboo subjects.
