    So, Bob Saget (yes, Bob Saget of Full House and America's Funniest Home Videos) came to perform stand-up at my college. Good Gravy! I had to boil my ears at the end of it. No, not really, but it was dirty diry humor. A good number (though not TOO many) of poo jokes, as wel as...other more "colorful humor". It was funny, the basis of the show was basically him venting his neuroses after becoming essentially typecast as a "family entertainer" and being well-aware .
    It wore a little thin for me as the whole "Hey, I'm Bob Saget! Watch me say nasty, horrible, dirty things" seemed more like a novelty than material for a real act. Then again, I never watched Full House, but there was a girl two rows behind me that was on the verge of tears at the end of the show, she was absolutely traumatized.

    So, 3.5/5 stand-up, adjust according to how much you used to watch Full House. (PM me for interesting factoid about Dave Goullier)

    Bob Saget has always had a fairly vulgar show. Not many people remember him before Full House, but his language was the same then as it was at the show you saw.

    Another comedian like that is Robin Williams. His HBO special is awesome, but completely different than the image you get from him in movies. Dirty, filthy, vulgar, and obsene. Its awesome :D
     
  13. Obviously you didn't see Death to Smoochy.

    One movie out of thirty doesn't stop the image the other 29 projects. In the end, that is just a role in a movie. His stand up is him. That is what makes it suprising.
     
  15. Comedian who only uses dirty jokes = easy laughs = no talent.

    Sort of like:
    Bands who copy Blink 182 = impresses stupid kids = no talent.

    Check out Mitch Hedberg if you want to see a comedian with a style of his own.
     
  16. word, mitch hedberg is one of the few people ive seen that can make ANYTHING funny. half of his jokes make no sense and wouldnt be a bit funny if told by anyone else, but his style is so perfected that its hilarious. hes a comic genius!
     
  17. His role in, umm, oh damn, I can't think of the name. Kinda freaky movie where he is a photoshop worker. Not funny at all.

    Anyway, it's a good movie, and it shows that he actually has depth to his character. Same thing with his role in Jakob the Liar. There is a small amount of humor, but it's pretty dark. He does movies where he is not funny at all, and they usually are pretty good.

    Then there are movies like Toys, which is just hilarious.:D

  18. Jack was one his best roles imo

    this thread is officially now about robin williams
     
  19. There was a Robin Williams movie where he was a potty mouthed college professor. The movie was good, his character was good, but all the f-bombs he was dropping seemed forced.
