"Bob Saget's Here For You - Bob's new podcast on all platforms including Apple and Spotify.
Birthday: May 17, Despite being forever known as the buttoned-down, squeaky-clean patriarch of the Tanner clan on the hit family sitcom "Full House" ABC, , actor-comedian Bob Saget earned a reputation for being one of the filthiest, most foul-mouthed comics in the business. Even before his run on "Full House," Saget was infamous among friends for telling dirty jokes. Which was why it was no surprise to anyone who knew him, that his version of an old vaudevillian joke in the documentary "The Aristocrats" was the most shocking - and funniest - by any comic in the film - a project which counted among its participants, George Carlin, Chris Rock and Sarah Silverman. But to those unfamiliar with the "real" Saget were downright slack-jawed hearing him describe unmentionable sexual acts committed by a family auditioning for an agent.

His father, Benjamin August 28, — January 30, ,  was a supermarket executive, and his mother, Rosalyn "Dolly" February 12, — February 15, ,  was a hospital administrator. Saget attended Temple University 's film school, where he created Through Adam's Eyes , a black-and-white film about a boy who received reconstructive facial surgery, and was honored with an award of merit in the Student Academy Awards. He graduated with a B. Saget describes himself at the time in an article by Glenn Esterly in the Saturday Evening Post : "I was a cocky, overweight twenty-two-year-old. Then I had a gangrenous appendix taken out, almost died, and I got over being cocky or overweight.
Saget started performing stand-up comedy and has done a number of national tours. The show received negative reviews and was canceled after a month. After that, Saget went to star on Full House. Preceding his final episode, six of his fellow Full House alumni co-stars made guest appearances John Stamos , Dave Coulier , Candace Cameron Bure , Jodie Sweetin , Lori Loughlin , and Andrea Barber , and they even tried their hand at some of his closing catchphrases.
