With more than 30 years of performing his sold-out stand-up act in theaters and showrooms throughout North America, comedian Bob Saget will appear at The Orleans Showroom for a two-night engagement, August 14 and 15, both evenings at 8 p.m. (Photo credit: Robert Sebree).
Perhaps most recognized from his long-running ABC series’ “Full House” and “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” comedian Bob Saget is also well known for his adult-themed brand of comedy, dealing with life as a single dad, dating, divorce and any questions you had about “Full House.” In 2007, Saget filmed the HBO comedy special Bob Saget: That Ain’t Right. Later in the year, he wrote, directed, produced and voiced-over the film Farce of the Penguins, which also starred the voices of Samuel L. Jackson, Christina Applegate, Lewis Black, Tracy Morgan, Mo’Nique and fifty of comedy’s biggest names.
From 2006 to 2008, Saget hosted the NBC quiz show 1 vs. 100, where he ad-libbed his way through the one-hour prime time game. In 2008, he was the subject of a Comedy Central roast and in 2009 he appeared in his own sitcom Surviving Suburbia. Saget has a recurring role in the HBO series Entourage, for which he will appear in two episodes this season.
Saget has appeared on film in Half Baked, Dumb & Dumber and The Aristocrats, among others. In 2007, he appeared in the Tony Award-winning musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone, which he considers one of his best professional experiences. In 2010, he will star in a new comedy documentary series for The Arts and Entertainment Network, exploring bizarre subcultures in America. Saget is a board member of the Scleroderma Research Foundation and he co-produces and hosts “Cool Comedy Hot Cuisine” events in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco. The next event will be November 8 at Caroline’s in Times Square.
