Yes, Bob Saget has starred in many successful television shows, including two of the most family-friendly shows network TV has ever produced ("Full House" and "Americas Funniest Home Videos"), but he’s also been an out of his mind, standup comedian for over thirty years. From his 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.
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. And then came the hit NBC quiz show "1 VS 100," where Bob 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. And last year Bob's sitcom, "Surviving Suburbia" aired on ABC. He's currently on his "Strange Days" sold-out standup tour in theaters and colleges across North America.
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.
Bob's been working this past year shooting episodes of “Strange Days with Bob Saget,” a new comedy documentary series he will star in for A&E. In the series Bob explores unusual subcultures throughout America: he joins a motorcycle club (riding in a sidecar from Nashville to Daytona), looks for Bigfoot with fellow 'Squatchers' in the Pacific Northwest, joins a frat at Cornell, explores the world of backyard professional wrestling, goes to a summer camp with fourteen year olds, and gets 'lost in Las Vegas' Hunter S. Thompson-style.
