Bob Saget began his comedy career in the late 1970s performing stand-up comedy in various clubs and venues around New York City. He gained recognition in the 1980s as a regular on “The Morning Program,” a short-lived morning talk show on CBS.
However, Saget’s big break came when he was cast as the host of the family-friendly television show “America’s Funniest Home Videos” in 1989. The show’s success made Saget a household name and allowed him to pursue other opportunities, including acting and directing.
Despite his success on “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” Saget continued to perform stand-up comedy and released his first comedy album, “That’s What I’m Talkin’ About,” in 2013. Saget’s comedy style is known for being raunchy and profane, which is a stark contrast to his wholesome image on “America’s Funniest Home Videos” and the family sitcom “Full House,” which he starred in from 1987 to 1995.
