The star of the family series “Full House” and “Fuller House” and host of even higher G-rated “America’s Funniest Home Videos” was also well known for his crass humor.
Saget’s appearance in Penn Jillette and Paul Provenza’s 2005 documentary “The Aristocrats” broadened the perception of a man who had played one of the healthiest, dumbest fathers in sitcom history. .
In the documentary, Saget is one of the comedians taking on a famous dirty joke known from afar in comic circles. Saget’s version has been hailed as one of the biggest and “dirtiest” of all time. (We can’t repeat it here, but it’s easy internet search.)
Here are a few examples of the humor that Saget, who also played a crass version of himself on the HBO series “Entourage,” leaves behind.

“Here’s what happened: there’s a stripper on stage and I don’t remember much, but she’s there. And she’s got matches taped all over the neighborhood and she lights matches on fire. Then she does a little dance in her cocaine stupor and then she runs out of steam.
Then she says ‘And now Bob Saget comedy.’ “

Quick on the trigger
“I speak really fast. If you have drugs, take them now. I’m serious, okay? I’m not funny, but I’m fast. That’s a problem I have with women too. “
I know that smell
“(Sniffles) Wait. I know what the surprise is. Joey, you’re making that chili again.”

He got his sense of humor from his father
“It was a supermarket. He said that one day A&P was going to merge with Stop and Shop and become ‘Stop and P.'”
