Bob Saget Tickets
Bob Saget is an American actor, stand-up comedian, and former game show host, who is best known for his role as Danny Tanner in the ABC sitcom, ''Full House.''
Saget is known for his clean-cut, family-friendly persona from the hit shows, "Full House" and "America's Funniest Home Videos." His stand-up, in contrast, often includes colorful language and risque subject matter. He has, as a result, become a frequent subject of satire and parody in which he sometimes willingly participates.

Bob Saget Information Continued
Bob Saget was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and then moved to Lexington, Virginia when he was two years old. He attended Rockbridge County High School before moving back to Philadelphia and graduating from Abington Senior High School; he has since been enshrined in its Hall of Fame. He later enrolled at Temple University, where he made a student film, "Through Adam's Eyes", which in 1977 was honored with an award of merit in the Student Academy Awards.
After college, Bob Saget took a number of small-scale parts and began his relatively unknown stand-up comedy career before achieving national recognition with his role of Danny Tanner on Full House. He played the widowed father of three daughters. He also became the first host of the prototypical reality show America's Funniest Home Videos. He was the first person to star in two simultaneous prime-time television shows, and both shows were often in the top-ten TV ratings.
In contrast to his mild, family-friendly manner on the aforementioned television programs, Bob Saget is also known for raunchy, unabashedly vulgar stand-up comedy routines. In the mid-'80s, cable viewers got a taste of his early stand-up routine when he was featured on one of Rodney Dangerfield's HBO specials. He appeared alongside up-and-coming comedians like Sam Kinison, Rosanne Barr, Rita Rudner, and Bob Nelson. His brief appearance in the film Half Baked (1998) was a shock to many viewers who were not familiar with Bob Saget's standup material. His one piece of dialogue is one of the more infamous lines from the movie. His stand-up routine typically finds him making fun of his incredibly clean-cut television image and deriding the quality of Full House. Regardless, like others on the show, Bob Saget remains close to his cast mates, and even at times tours on the stand-up circuit with Dave Coulier. He uses digression as a large part of his act.
