I never saw Full
House, and could only occasionally stand to watch America’s Funniest Home Videos. But I’ve always heard that Bob
Saget is actually a wonderfully filthy comedian. Yet for one reason or another
I never got to hear his routine, though of course I was curious. With the
release of his new comedy album, That’s
What I’m Talkin’ About, I finally got my chance to enjoy his standup
He begins by saying, “I
don’t want to offend anybody; I want to offend everybody.” And he just rips
into it, which I appreciate. “Looking at
your happy faces makes me just want to put my hand up your butt and work you
like a Jeff Dunham puppet.”
He works quickly too, going right from one thought
rapidly to the next. His approach, or delivery, is kind of rambling, but like
express rambling. You know? He also directly addresses members of the audience,
asking a guy how drunk he is, then talking about the hole at the end of his
penis, thinking it’s a frown. It is to a couple of audience members (including
someone called J-Bone) that he constantly returns throughout the performance.
Early on he issues a warning: “There are people out there that are screwed up, and I know that because
I’m going to be outside later.” Then: “I
actually had a tattoo of a condom put on my penis because I don’t want to use
protection anymore.” It’s interesting that he does apologize on occasion –
I’m sorry, that’s too far.” Of
course, he’s not really sorry, and it’s never too far. He says, “I’m sacrilegious – I worship my sac.”
A few thoughts:
About his mom, who is eighty-seven and still drives: “I got her a prescription windshield.”
About doing a show in the Ukraine: “The legal age of consent in the Ukraine is Yes.”
About working on snuff films: “Snuff is good. It’s one take and you’re out of there.”
Interestingly, he mentions that old joke, if a guy were
able to go down on himself he’d never leave the house. Brian Posehn also did a
riff on that joke on his new comedy CD, The Fartist. Both say they would leave the house. But while
Brian says it would be to get therapy, Bob Saget says, “I would leave the house, because I want people to see that shit.”
At the end of the show, he does several songs,
introducing each of them as being in poor taste. He jokes about the first song:
It’s about Lucas’ penis. It’s a very
short song.” The song “When I Think Of You” is his version of “Lola.”
Probably my favorite is the one about dating a girl in the nursing home.
That’s What I’m
Talkin’ About was recorded in Seattle, and is scheduled to be released on July 16, 2013 through
New Wave Dynamics.
