Death to Danny
If your New Year's resolutions involve dodging crass jokes and averting your eyes from obscene gestures, then you may want to take a raincheck on Bob Saget's performances at comedy joint Stand Up Live, 50 West Jefferson Street. Had you not already guessed it, the 56-year-old comedian, who's best known for his role as über-wholesome widower Danny Tanner in the family sitcom Full House, is highly unwholesome in reality. In fact, much of the Philadelphia native's repertoire spotlights the disparity between his squeaky clean television persona and his real-life raunchiness, a seemingly elaborate attempt to dismantle one caricature with another.
Beyond that, Saget's stand-up is notoriously laden with more F-bombs than Red Foxx ever dared to mutter, some occasional audience berating, and plenty of Kimmy Gibbler juxtaposing.
