Quotes & Highlights
Watch videos of Bob Saget perform.
For some, Bob Saget is known world-wide for his television roles and set a precedent by simultaneously starring in two top-ten primetime series— the long-running sitcom “Full House” while also serving as the eight year host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos.” For others, Bob is known by a more ‘adult’ audience— through his edgier stand-up comedy, theater, television, and film work.
Bob has just made his impressive Broadway debut as the musical theatre fanatic narrator named “Man in Chair” in the Tony Award winning play “The Drowsy Chaperone,” now playing at the Marquis Theatre. This past year, he wrote, directed, and produced (with David Permut) the hugely successful DVD release, “Farce of the Penguins,” an R-rated live action comedy, made entirely of stock documentary footage. ‘Farce’ is narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, and stars the voiceover talents of Lewis Black, Mo’Nique, Tracy Morgan, Christina Applegate and himself. The film also features scores of guest appearances by some of the biggest and funniest names in comedy. It was released by THINKFilm and Lions Gate Films on January 30, 2007, and has sold incredibly well, especially with the college audiences. His HBO special, “That Ain’t Right,” was received incredibly well and continues to sell impressively on DVD. Recently, Bob shot new episodes of the hit NBC quiz show “1 vs. 100,” from the producers of “Deal or No Deal.” In this series, Bob continues to work without a script, adlibbing through the hour format, while people try to answer pop-culture questions to win one million dollars. During its first season, the show consistently delivered the network’s best performance in its time slot in many years.
Saget directed the college cult favorite feature film “Dirty Work,” and also helmed and executive produced the powerful telefilm “For Hope,” which starred Dana Delany in a story loosely based on the life and struggle of his sister, Gay, who passed away in 1994 from scleroderma. He continues to work on behalf of scleroderma research and awareness, serving as an active member of the Board of Directors of the Scleroderma Research Foundation, for which he hosts and co-produces three major fundraising events every 18 months in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, the organization’s base city.
His other credits include starring in the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway play, “Privilege,” written by Paul Weitz (“In Good Company”) and directed by Peter Askin (“Hedwig and the Angry Inch”) as well as appearing in the acclaimed comedy documentary film, “The Aristocrats,” earning rave reviews from The New York Times and Newsweek. Last season he played the murderer on “Law & Order: SVU,” poked fun at his self-image on HBO’s “Entourage,” guest-starred on Showtime’s series “Huff,” and has a hit music video from MTV, “Rollin’ With Saget,” which he stars with his friends, Jamie Kennedy and Stu Stone. The video has had millions of hits on the web and just recently won the FUSE TV Award.
Though currently starring on Broadway through the end of February, Bob remains committed to his career as a standup comedian, and throughout this year will continue his sold-out tour, headlining concert halls, casinos and colleges across America. His packed-housed audiences all grew up watching him, and love to see his adult stand-up, which completely blows up his TV images of past as well as leaving them rolling in the aisles.
He resides in Los Angeles and is the extremely proud father of three daughters.
