Did You Know?

Trivia

News spread very quickly after the roast that Bob Saget was offended by the jokes involving Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Saget explained years later that he actually wasn't that 'offended', going on to explain that he was asked by a reporter at the roast after-party if any of the jokes crossed the line. Saget claimed he had been drinking a little when he was asked this question too which spurred him to answer honestly, feeling still somewhat protective of the Olsen twins having worked with them at such a young age, Saget did cite the jokes aimed at them as being particularly harsh, but never claimed of any offense caused or resentment at the roasters for telling them.

Squeaky clean image, filthy dirty mind
24 December 2009 | by nixskitsSee all my reviews

With his boy next door looks, Bob Saget comes across as the nice, dutiful son all grown up. In reality, he's got one of the most vile imaginations and that cache of carnal joke pollution will shock anyone who grew up on "Full House" and doesn't know about his stand up roots. He's been quite the subject of comedian's lore for many years and here several big names in the roasting game take aim at him.

Former co-star John Stamos is the host and he gets a few good shots in at his TV brother in law. And Stamos is also the relentless subject of ridicule from the others getting on stage. Jim Norton, Susie Essman, Jeff Ross, Greg Giraldo and the great Chloris Leachman are just a few of Saget's friendly attackers.

You have to wonder how these roasts are really edited, as some less than stellar performances receive much more laughter than they merit. The best jokes come fast and furious in the midst of a set, with no room for resting on funny laurels. It's too bad roaster perennials Lisa Lampanelli and Andy Dick aren't here, as they could have incinerated poor Bob, not merely touched on some lightweight insults like a few in this lineup that pulled some punches they shouldn't have.

Not the best or worst in this Comedy Central series, but worth watching.
