    Bob Saget

    Actor & Comedian

    Bob Saget is a stand-up comedian and actor, writer and director, who’s best-known by some for his role as Danny Tanner in the hit TV series "Full House" and now "Fuller House." Saget's just as well-known by others for his stand-up comedy, including the Grammy Award-nominated comedy album from his popular special, “That’s What I’m Talkin About." As it’s evolved in the past 40 years, his stand-up has always been both self-deprecating and edgy-irreverent, but it only skims the surface of who Saget is—he’s used comedy, through acting, writing and directing as a vehicle for healing and social criticism (he digs into this aspect of his work and viewpoint of the world in his New York Times Best-selling book Dirty Daddy: The Chronicles of a Family Man Turned Filthy Comedian). Saget has made a career out of pushing the boundaries of comedy, but in doing so he’s shaken up audience’s concept of identity, political correctness and what it means to be a public figure.
