BOB SAGET Returns To Stage With Stand-Up Special 'That's What I'm Talking About'
On 05 April 2013
Veteran comic Bob Saget returns to the stage in the long-awaited Bob Saget: “That’s What I’m Talking About”, premiering Friday, May 10th on ShowTime.
Saget is known for the “Full House” series as America’s favorite dad. As a stand-up comedian, he has a salt and pepper style retelling colorful stories with a sharp sense of humor.
Saget has starred in many successful television shows, including two of the most family-friendly shows network TV has ever produced (Full House and America's Funniest Home Videos) but he's also been an out-of-his-mind, stand-up comedian for more than thirty years.
From his HBO special “That Ain't Right” to his scene-stealing cameos in “Entourage”, and “The Aristocrats”, it's always effective when Saget embraces his dark side.
Saget starred on Broadway in the Tony Award-winning The Drowsy Chaperone and headlined the self-titled documentary comedy series for A&E, “Strange Days with Bob Saget. He is preparing for a dirty comeback on stage in the upcoming months.
In addition to his return to television, Saget will be on tour starting April 11 and will act as the roast master at the Friars’ Club in New York City. He’s also working on a book, scheduled for release by HarperCollins in 2014.
Watching Bob Saget is like a self-indulgent exercise in re-living his life.
If you don’t get along well with the ironic – more like satirical – commentaries you might think that he has bad jokes but between the loud crowed, the punch lines have an actually good taste.
Before judging and comparing him with other comedians you have to remember that he is not working by a set list. That’s what we call improvisation.
