Overview

Millions of viewers know and love Bob Saget from his role as the sweetly neurotic father 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 scatological, 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, he continues to embrace his dark side and gives readers the book they have long been waiting for—hilarious and often dirty. Bob believes there's a time and a place for filth. 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 co-stars like John Stamos and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, to his tales of legendary friends and colleagues like Rodney Dangerfield, Richard Pryor, Don Rickles, and other show business legends, Saget opens up about some of his personal experiences with life and death, his career, and his reputation for sick humor—all with his highly original blend of silliness, vulgarity, humor and heart, and all framed by a man who loves being funny above all else.

I hope what ever money he made from book sales he donated to charity. By far the worse book ever.

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

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.

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.

After reading this book, I honestly felt like I knew Bob Saget... and I had an overwhelming desire to cook up a batch of really good chicken soup and crusty warm bread to send to his house. Poignant, honest, and open are some of the impressions I'm left with after this read. Buy the book... worth the expense!

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

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!

Bob Saget is a true story teller. His comedy is a little dirty but so what? I think this book is great and that is why I give it 5 stars. You go Bob Saget! :P -Micah Hallbrook; Age: 13 PS: I don't really like cussing books but this book is great!
