Hits and misses Sep 09, 2007
By Graham R. Scott
Upon seeing former family-hour anchor Saget act like he has Tourette's and ADHD simultaneously, some reviewers here -- it appears -- couldn't stop laughing.
Many more people, it seems, couldn't start.
I was somewhere in between: I started watching about halfway through, and for ten minutes or more, never once felt the urge to laugh. I outgrew scatalogical humor decades ago (or thought I had). In short, I was in the zero-to-one-stars camp. Under normal circumstances, I probably would have changed the channel or shut the thing off, but I had nothing better to do and wanted to see how bad it would get. But here's the thing: Saget's wit flies by at about a mile a minute, usually buried in what appears to be stream of (very raunchy) consciousness; the jokes are dropped in so slyly through sleight-of-mouth that they're practically subliminal. Moreover, most of these "wait -- what did he just say?"-type jokes build on previous ones, which is why it took me about ten minutes to start catching up on them. Once I did, I found quite a few of them pretty funny -- and several of his jabs during the last half of my show had me laughing so hard I ended up wheezing.
All of this means it's very tough to figure out whether to recommend his routine to anyone. I think much of his profane material will only appeal to the potty-mouth, not-too-cerebral crowd, and turn off those who appreciate fine wit. But at the same time, I wonder whether his cleverest jokes are likely to be missed entirely by the belch-and-gas crowd. Put another way, I suspect the appropriate audience for Saget is very, very, very small: You have to simultaneously love subtle wit and the most profane, carnal, guttermouth, unredeemably bad jokes in the world -- and be happy, mostly, with the latter. That's a pretty small demographic, and I'm frankly not sure I fall within it.
One last note: I would politely disagree with those who suggest Saget is just trying to play against his good-boy image. Based on my read of the man, I would bet otherwise: He's not overcompensating, folks -- just out of the closet.

I'm not offended by curses or shock humor... just offended by unfunny comedians. Dec 18, 2013
I don't care how much he curses or how many borderline inappropriate and politically incorrect jokes a comedian makes.. '
If he/she is funny.. I don't give a s*** how vulgar they are.
Bob Saget is extremely vulgar... Unfortunately he is not funny in the slightest bit.
If he didn't seem like such a lame person, I would have felt bad seeing him up on stage bombing so bad.
He's just not funny, and tries way to too hard. Terrible comedian, terrible show.

Horrible waste of time! Jan 05, 2014
As stated many times in these reviews "We get it, you are not the warm fuzzy dad from that show you were in" But cursing just because you are allowed to is not funny, the "jokes" (I use that word loosely here) are just plain awful & never during any comedy special have I not laughed at all till I seen this train wreck. Avoid this at all costs, even free it would not be worth the purchase price as viewing it will make you lose an hour of your life you will never get back!

Better than the reviews Aug 28, 2007
By Jacob Colson
This special isn't the funniest or the most hilarious thing I've ever heard. Since I haven't seen any of his stand-up prior to this, I wasn't sure what to expect. I saw the special, and I have to say, I do agree with most reviews, only to say, his jokes were there. Some of which were very funny, although I wish he didn't apologize so much about it afterwards, and for some reason, I didn't care that he used so much dirty language. The punchlines were funny, but the set-up, (like other reviews say) were too long which strayed from the funny of the joke.
Anyways, I liked the special and yes, I really rated this 4 stars. I did, very much, enjoy the 3 songs he performed at the end of his special. The first song, very dirty but very funny. The second song, for some reason I've heard it before, but also very funny. The third song, a little less pop-sounding than I expected, but still funny.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, although I would recommend you keep an open mind when you see this. It won't appeal to everyone, (obviously), but give it a chance!

"Watch this, Bob Saget!!"... Feb 06, 2008
By Mark Gatzke
Oh, how I longed for the good old days of Sam Kinison and Bob Goldthwait... And then along comes Bob Saget, making up for years of fluffy, empty quips ala Full House and America's Funniest Videos with a performance that is nothing short of stunning. I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard for so long. He's out of control and making up for lost time. Granted, it's not for everyone. This brand of humor knocks the door to bad taste off its hinges. It's in the gutter and stream-of-consciousness all the way, but, believe it or not, that's a lot harder to pull off than you might think. But what makes this stuff truly funny is that it's BOB SAGET! I respect a man who goes with his gut, and Bob is the current leader of the shock-comedy pack. Nicely done!
