If you’re looking for a special to help you remember the warm, dorky dad from “Full House,” this ain’t it — but as Saget reverts to his “foul-mouthed explainer and raconteur” persona for this Seattle stage show, it’ll be easy to fall in love with the R-rated version, too.
Bob Saget: Zero to Sixty (2017):
Just because Saget’s off-sitcom persona was a teeny bit raunchier than viewers might expect doesn’t mean he’s not still “the last TV father viewers can trust,” a title he embraces in this stand-up special he saw as “a warm embrace in this troubled times.” It’s still not for kids, though.

The foul-mouthed, big-hearted Saget is one of five comedians (alongside Lewis Black and Zach Galifianakis, among others) who steps up to coach “five wounded war veterans for their first stand-up comedy set.” This documentary captures the attempt to promote “healing through humor.”
