The roles were in stark contrast to the uncensored stand-up he did at night in comedy clubs.
“People were surprised. I was playing at a casino up there in Vancouver one night and there was a lady who was just starting to run, ”Saget said in a 2017 interview with CBS News. “But mostly I always adapt to the audience like a chameleon. I’m not deliberately saying, ‘I’m getting fucked up here’ if you don’t enjoy it, you know. I want to laugh. “
From an early age he was a warm-up comedian for the studio audience of the 1980s television series “Bosom Buddies”, where he got a small role in front of the camera and met Jeff Franklin.
“Franklin was a producer on that show and had always thought of me for Danny Tanner. He said he knew about Bob’s edgy side, but he knew I could be the show’s Richie Cunningham, too, “Saget told CBS News.
