Bob Saget / Brooklyn Bowl / Las Vegas / September 16 / Tickets
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 an out of his mind, Grammy-nominated standup comedian for over thirty years. From 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 only to the Olympics. And in 2009 Bob’s sitcom, “Surviving Suburbia” aired on ABC.
For many years now, Bob has been a proud board member of the Scleroderma Research Foundation. A couple times every year he co-produces and hosts “Cool Comedy Hot Cuisine” fundraising events in Los Angeles, New York, Las Vegas, and San Francisco. To date, they have raised over 35 million dollars for the SRF.
Bob was seen several times reprising the role of ‘Himself’ on HBO’s hit series “Entourage” as well as a cameo in the film. He also starred in his own documentary comedy series for A&E titled, “Strange Days with Bob Saget,” an exploration of unusual subcultures in America.
Three years ago Bob completed his first Australian theater tour visiting Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Bob continues touring, playing to sold out audiences in theaters and universities across North America and in 2012 he hosted the Montreal Comedy Festival’s first live 90 minute JFL XXX TV show which continues to air across Canada on The Movie Network.
His 2013 one-hour stand-up special, “That’s What I’m Talkin’ About,” was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album. The special was filmed at The Moore Theatre in Seattle, premiered on Showtime in May 2013 and is now available as a CD, DVD, download, and on Netflix.
Bob’s first book is a New York Times Best Seller – “DIRTY DADDY: The Chronicles of a Family Man Turned Filthy Comedian” was released on April 8, 2014 to critical acclaim with Vanity Fair calling it, “Hilarious and at times heartbreaking.” It’s available in audio as well, recorded by Bob himself.
Bob just finished a very fulfilling and successful 9-week run on Broadway in the Tony-nominated play, “Hand To God.” In January he guest starred on John Stamos’ Fox series, “Grandfathered,” and he will be seen in the Netflix series, “Fuller House,” premiering February 26.
