Overview

Millions of viewers know and love Bob Saget from his role on the smash hit Full House, and as the charming wisecracking host of America's Funniest Home Videos. And then there are the legions of fans who can't get enough of his out-of-his-mind stand-up routines, comedy specials, and outrageously profane performances in such shows as HBO's Entourage and the hit documentary The Aristocrats. In his bold and wildly entertaining publishing debut, Bob continues to embrace his dark side and gives listeners the audiobook they have long been waiting for—hilarious and often dirty yet warm and disarmingly sincere.

Bob believes there's a time and a place for filth and immature humor—and for gentle family comedy. Dirty Daddy is packed with both, from his never-before-heard stories of what really went on behind the scenes of two of the most successful family shows of all times, with costars like John Stamos, Mary-Kate Olsen, and Ashley Olsen, to his liberating experience in The Aristocrats, his Comedy Central roast, and his role of playing an extreme version of himself on Entourage. Bob opens up about his career, his reputation for sick humor, and his pride and love for Full House. Told with his highly original blend of silliness, vulgarity, wit, and heart, Dirty Daddy reveals Bob Saget as never before—a man who loves being funny and making people laugh above all else.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

"I become a chameleon wherever I am." Bob Saget's claim is no empty boast. He has played an inept dad on family sit-coms and as a stand-up, spewed bawdy one-liners and hilarious stories, of which at least a few have embarrassed formerly pristine co-stars. In Dirty Daddy, the host of America's Funniest Home Videos turns off his personal bleep button and lets fly with his favorite, never-before-told stories of a life well and outrageously spent. A full house of uncensored fun.

Library Journal - Audio
09/01/2014
In this heartfelt memoir, Saget relives his childhood, loss of close family members, stand-up career, and breakthrough on the sitcom Full House, as well as his work on America's Funniest Home Videos and parts on shows such as Entourage. Fans will find more earnest reflection here than laughs, although even the touching stories of loss are scattered with Saget's trademark anatomical and scatological one-liners. Saget makes a point of skipping behind-the-scenes dirt from the entertainment world, although he does relate a few amusing stories where he is the butt of the joke. Instead, listeners can expect to hear thoughtful tales of the author meeting his comedy idols as well as pieces expressing gratitude for his career, family, fans, and fellow comedians and actors. Chapters are arranged thematically rather than chronologically, often revealing his thoughts on the close relationship between suffering and comedy. Saget's narration could have used a bit more energy, but his tone closely matches the mood of the book. VERDICT Recommended for Saget fans and those who enjoy learning about comedians' process.—Cliff Landis, Georgia State Univ. Lib., Atlanta
Vanity Fair
“Hilarious and at times heartbreaking . . .”
Larry King Now
“Equal parts smut and sincerity . . .”
AskMen.com
“Both funnier and darker than you might expect . . .”
Kirkus Reviews
2014-03-31
Family entertainer and champion of filthy humor aims to track his two divergent voices in his memoir. The author, best known for starring on popular TV shows Full House and America's Funniest Home Videos, theorizes that his bifurcated approach to comedy— kid friendly for the TV audience, scatological and ribald in his stand-up—derives from an upbringing in which strong family ties were tested by illness and early deaths: "The more tragedy befell us, the more odd gallows humor I would release." Saget discusses the difficult losses of beloved childhood uncles and, as an adult, his two sisters with a touching straightforwardness before moving on to portray his career arc, beginning with his hardscrabble initiation as a touring comic in the early 1980s: "For me it took ten years to even start to happen." He has a long memory for the comedy veterans who were kind to him, including Johnny Carson, Richard Pryor and George Carlin, leading to many amusing showbiz anecdotes and a few off-color ones involving the likes of Rodney Dangerfield. Yet, Saget was surprised when his initial success led to being cast as "a conservative, neurotic widowed father of three" on Full House, which he admits propelled him into the cultural mainstream. Saget's prose is frequently droll (on his concurrent success with America's Funniest Home Videos: "I was double-teamed by family TV"), but the overall effect is one of casual impressions and a broad account of his life rather than a sharper narrative about performance or his eventual experiences producing and directing. Instead, the author frequently indulges in asides, midlife musings and advice for readers, which may produce diminishing returns for anyone who is not a die-hard fan—e.g., "Anything good is hard. But enough about my penis." Some readers may sense the complexity and darkness beneath Saget's comedic stance, yet this memoir remains bubbly and superficial.

    I feel sorry that he lost his from a terrible disease, but I wouldn't read this book, because of his offensive humor. Wish him all the best, though.

    I thought that he was kidding

    I really did not think that Bob Saget felt that he had to be dirty to be funny.

    Bob Saget's autobiography is both touching and hilarious! Who knew that Danny Tanner had such a potty mouth.

    Loved it!

    I laughed out loud while reading this book. Great reading about Bob's history in stand up. I had no idea about the loss of family that he has been through. Definitely more to this man than most people think!

    bought the audio book because I thought listening to a comedian

    bought the audio book because I thought listening to a comedian would come across better than reading. I haven't even finished it. Bob saget is not at all funnyI guess he needs all that juvenile filth because he certainly has no comedic talent.
    wish I could get my money back.
