About Bob Saget

While he might have had a break from being Full House’s Danny Tanner for a few years, Bob Saget has never truly left us. He hosted the coveted America’s Funniest Home Videos for years while also continuing his standup career and giving the occasional TV show cameo. It seems as if the dichotomy between Bob and Danny bleeds into real life as he Snapchats dad jokes and Instagrams old Full House behind-the-scenes footage while simultaneously tweeting out (sometimes crude) rap lyrics. Netflix’s 2016 revamp Fuller House often pokes fun at Danny Tanner, insinuating he’s not the clean-cut American dad we once thought he was—he’s a little more like Bob Saget.
