Many more people, it seems, couldn't start.
I was somewhere in between: I started watching about halfway through, and for ten minutes or more, never once felt the urge to laugh. I outgrew scatalogical humor decades ago (or thought I had). In short, I was in the zero-to-one-stars camp. Under normal circumstances, I probably would have changed the channel or shut the thing off, but I had nothing better to do and wanted to see how bad it would get. But here's the thing: Saget's wit flies by at about a mile a minute, usually buried in what appears to be stream of (very raunchy) consciousness; the jokes are dropped in so slyly through sleight-of-mouth that they're practically subliminal. Moreover, most of these "wait -- what did he just say?"-type jokes build on previous ones, which is why it took me about ten minutes to start catching up on them. Once I did, I found quite a few of them pretty funny -- and several of his jabs during the last half of my show had me laughing so hard I ended up wheezing.
All of this means it's very tough to figure out whether to recommend his routine to anyone. I think much of his profane material will only appeal to the potty-mouth, not-too-cerebral crowd, and turn off those who appreciate fine wit. But at the same time, I wonder whether his cleverest jokes are likely to be missed entirely by the belch-and-gas crowd. Put another way, I suspect the appropriate audience for Saget is very, very, very small: You have to simultaneously love subtle wit and the most profane, carnal, guttermouth, unredeemably bad jokes in the world -- and be happy, mostly, with the latter.Read more ›
If he/she is funny.. I don't give a s*** how vulgar they are.
Bob Saget is extremely vulgar... Unfortunately he is not funny in the slightest bit.
If he didn't seem like such a lame person, I would have felt bad seeing him up on stage bombing so bad.
He's just not funny, and tries way to too hard. Terrible comedian, terrible show.
Bob Saget isn't Danny Tanner. Wow. I think most of us get the joke... or lack of one.
Anyways, I liked the special and yes, I really rated this 4 stars. I did, very much, enjoy the 3 songs he performed at the end of his special. The first song, very dirty but very funny. The second song, for some reason I've heard it before, but also very funny. The third song, a little less pop-sounding than I expected, but still funny.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, although I would recommend you keep an open mind when you see this. It won't appeal to everyone, (obviously), but give it a chance!

I think it's great. One of the best acts around. Don't get why it has so many bad reviews. Maybe people expected Full House or America's Funniest Home Videos. Read morePublished 8 months ago by sinner619
"Zero" stars was not an option, but for this it should have been. This is the most pathetic "comedy" act I've ever seen. Please spare yourselves and your $.Published 9 months ago by Windy City
I only gave this one star because I had to in order to review it. Didn't even make it through 10 minutes. Save your time. Wasn't even worth it for free.Published 9 months ago by KG
