— Ace Anyone who watched comedy in the early eighties knew Bob Saget to be one of the dirtiest comics working in the business. Which made his squeaky-clean turns in Full House and America's Funniest Videos a little odd.
Seriously-- at one point, Bob Saget was quite funny.
A nice article about his days as the Jewish Redd Foxx. With this fun quote from the libertarian-leaning, liberal-pablum-hating (but also annoyingly motormouthed) Penn Jilette of Penn & Teller:
Content warning; go to the jump to read.
Saget is the dirtiest motherfucking cocksucker that ever walked the face of the earth! said Mr. Jillette. Doing those little bullshit family shows, playing the retarded fucking squeaky dickless dadthats not Saget! Thats a joke. You go to a restaurant with Saget and before he orders food, hell be talking to the waitress about fucking his daughters in the ass.
Mr. Jillette advanced the theory that there is nothing more American than dirty jokes.
One of the most important things about The Aristocrats is, when Saget is getting so filthy-dirty, he has no worry, he said. We live in a country where we do have freedom of speech. This movie is just a pure dream of Thomas Jefferson, in that its a hundred people saying anything that pops into their head, with no fear whatsoever. You know a lot of the Hollywood peopleand this pissed me off so muchwould say, Oh, your movies fine in the blue states, but what about in the red states, where you get to the stupid people? And I would say, Oh, by stupid people you mean people who can program a machine, fix cars and perform surgeries? As opposed to we who are in Hollywood, who cant do fucking anything?

Apart from the title, Penn & Teller's "Bullshit!" is quite a red-state-sensibility show; it debunks global warming, for crying out loud.
Maybe it's because I grew up with his authoritative voice boomingly announcing upcoming shows on Comedy Central (even back when it was The Comedy Channel, before the Ha! takeover), but I've always liked Penn. For one thing, he gave great sound bytes for "Michael Moore Hates America."
If there's a celebrity who gets it, it's Penn Gilette.

I kind of like him. I like his Bullshit! show. I used to like his magic act. But the guy has to learn to give his fucking mouth a fucking rest.

"Um, no, I can't say that I have."
"I didn't think so."
"Boo this man! Booooooo..."

I don't object to hearing obscenities and I use them myself. But a continuous stream of them is just not funny, and it's not a substitute for actual humor and wit. Call me a prude or naive, but I like the fact that TV filters out most of it.
