Ah, you’ve got to love a comic you grow up viewing on a wholesome family show who now spews expletives every other word of his stand-up set. Bob Saget of Full House fame didn’t disappoint during his late show Saturday night at Stand Up Live in Phoenix, as he admitted he tells female fans who watched him growing up to know watch him while they’re going down — think about it.
This was the second time I’ve seen the classic television star, and I’ve also had the privilege of interviewing the oh-so-charming, still sort of dad-like Saget. Most of his set was improvised and revolved around audience interactions, with Saget teasing several audience members in-between telling tales about John Stamos and his acting gigs since Full House wrapped. The set totally reminded me of the first time I saw him more than 6 years ago at the Tempe Improv, but it was still highly entertaining, especially coming off of his recent roast on Comedy Central.
If you’ve never seen Saget, make it a priority to get a ticket next time he comes to town. His comedy is dirty and raunchy and nothing like the wisdom of his alter ego Danny Tanner — which, in my opinion, is really great. And, like always, expect to pay for a pricey two-drink minimum at Stand Up Live. Our service this time was disappointing, with the second drink coming out mere minutes before the show ended. I’d order both drinks up-front next time to ensure you can drink throughout the show. For more information on Saget, go here, and for more information on Stand Up Live, go here.
