1 Maybe, he just isn't funny and he knows it. So, the excessive cursing is his way of saying "I can be funny" but it's really not. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on January 8, 2012, 11:36 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Pelirojo- I completely agree with you. I've been in the entertainment industry in a couple of different capacities and I have also worked in Radio as a DJ myself. I also know a little bit about marketing & promotion thanks to my current line of work. So I guess you're kinda preaching to the choir. :). Bottomline is, if you're out there promoting yourself and your latest pet project, you've gotta play by the rules (whatever they are). First rule in this case- know your audience and who you are talking to. What flies on Howard Stern might not go over quite as well on Good Morning America. The only thing I can possibly think might have been going on with regards to Saget and the radio interview was that he really didn't want to do the interview in the first place and was intentionally making it difficult. That actually happens sometimes. That or he was just being mischievious and wanted to see how much of the interview would make it to air. Guess the joke was kinda on Saget in that case. I don't get my underwear in a knot if a comedian/ entertainer wants to drop some cuss words into his/her act. It only really bothers me when it's done to such a frequency yhat it begins to eclipse whats being said and is either done purely for shock value or simply is a crutch for spicing up otherwise dull, bland content. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 6, 2012, 1:23 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 There's a time and place for swearing and the radio isn't one of them. I think he just wants to show off his foul mouth. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on January 5, 2012, 11:11 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Friedrich, Even if one has no problems with others using profanity for entertainment purposes, the sad thing about Saget doing that in the radio interview was that he was doing it for the ostensible purpose of promoting one of his projects. In other words, there would have been X number of listeners who'd have otherwise not heard of/cared about said project who might have taken an interest in it had they been able to listen to said interview. However; due to him rendering the interview so devoid of non-profane content to make it unfit for broadcast, he somewhat sabotaged his earning potential- to say nothing of having wasted the deejay's and his own time! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 5, 2012, 8:09 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Oh it gets even better: In the director's commentary track for the film Dumb & Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, the director states (paraphrased) that Saget insisted that the writers have the female love interest's Dad, the character Saget played, use the word "$h-t" multiple times because he, Saget, thought people would think it hilariously funny to see/hear Bob Saget using profanity. Sadly that entire movie was profoundly UNfunny- and it was probably because of examples like that moment where the inmates were obviously running the asylum. But yes, Mr. Saget seems to go a little overboard with the profanity thing. Guess he figures he got typecast back in his Full House/AFHV days and he's been working diligently to break the curse. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 4, 2012, 3:14 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I know of a deejay who had to dump an entire interview with Saget because Saget peppered his responses with so many profanities that there would have been virtually nothing left to air after editting. Yeesh! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 2, 2012, 8:32 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I don't mind when someone throws in profanities or dirty jokes in their act, but it's sorely obvious Saget does it, he's doing it to show that "Hey! I'm no clean choir boy that you see me as on Full House or America's Funniest Home Videos! !@#&^@%$^*%!@*$^!&*(@#^!@#&*(%^!@#*(%&(*#()!!!!!!" -- Submitted By: () on January 1, 2012, 8:21 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
