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!

Like a fifteen-year-old trying really hard to impress the "cool crowd" Sep 04, 2014
By Justin DeFerbrache
As many people have pointed out, Bob Saget's attempt at stand-up comedy has more to do with an elation for saying naughty words than it does for actually being funny. His jokes are so juvenile and often nonsensical that he seems not only like an amateur comedian but also to posses a fundamental lack of understanding of the concept of humor. For example, how many times during the show does he tell a kid in the audience that if he sees Gollum from the Lord of the Rings, don't have s#x with him because he isn't real? What can one possibly say about a "joke" like that? I have no idea.
Saget also comes across as a two-faced, pretentious jerk as he gives the middle finger to basically everything and everyone that made him a star, ex. Full House and America's Funniest Home Videos. Once again, it's like he's trying to convince "the guys" how cool he actually is and that he isn't really down with all that square s@#t. Well, nobody forced him to go into show business or to be the star of those shows, how about having a little gratitude? I'm sure many other struggling actors would love to have had a break like that.
We also see him in a video montage before the show, signing autographs and taking pictures with people who are most likely fans of his older work (lots of middle-aged/older women) and just randomly saying dirty things to see if they take notice. What kind of a-hole celebrity mocks his own fans right in front of their faces? Once again, sending a message to the "cool guys": "You see these old bags? So delusional, OMG!" It is not to say that I am a fan of Full House or AFHV, but still, maybe show some respect to the people who care about your work, no matter what it is. I watched this movie for half-an-hour, longer than many other reviewers here, and it only gets more and more painful. A complete waste of time.

So Sad....... Jul 15, 2014
By Chip Thome
So sad to watch someone try to be cool by being so crude.
I lasted around 120 seconds before I shut it off to find something else.
