To many, Bob Saget is just the sweetly neurotic father on the classic sitcom "Full House" or the soothing, omniscient voice of a future Ted Mosby in "How I Met Your Mother" or even the wisecracking host of "America's Funniest Home Videos". But don't be fooled by all the wholesomeness, Saget certainly has a wild side. In the stand-up circuit, Saget is a foul-mouthed, out-of-his-mind, Grammy-nominated comedian who's been slinging his less-than-clean humor for over 30 years. After his outrageously profane performances in the stoner comedy "Half Baked", on HBO's "Entourage" and in the hit documentary "The Aristocrats", Saget's brand of out-of-his-mind scatological humor has been unleashed on an unsuspecting public. Now Saget brings his witty crowd work and tell-all stories from behind the scenes of everyone's favorite childhood show to the stage of Stand Up Live in Phoenix. [less-]
