Saget is best known as the milquetoast patriarch Danny Tanner on the ABC sitcom Full House, which led to his stint hosting the first incarnation of America’s Funniest Home Videos. He has spent the subsequent years atoning for those sins.
His darker sensibilities have come to light through appearances in the raunchy 2005 comedy documentary The Aristocrats, as well as a recurring role as a fictionalized version of himself on HBO’s Entourage. My favorite of his image-reshaping cameos, however, is in Dave Chappelle’s stoner comedy Half Baked, during which Saget manages to make two drug references and be sexually explicit with only 30 seconds of screen time. Pure comedic gold.
Given the 18-plus stipulation, his stand-up is also sure to be more adult than his old family-friendly fare. You’ve been warned. (Rob Tennant)
