Tickets on sale for March 13 Bob Saget LIVE at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Tampa
TAMPA, Fla. – Bob Saget has starred in many successful television shows, including two of the most family-friendly shows that network TV has ever produced ("Full House" and "America’s Funniest Home Videos") but he’s also an out-of-his-mind, stand-up comedian for over 30 years. From his HBO special "That Ain't Right" to his scene-stealing cameos in "Entourage," and "The Aristocrats," it’s always effective as Saget embraces his dark side.
Saget’s current tour, the “Rated R-ish “Bob Saget LIVE”, makes its Florida debut on Sunday, March 13 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Tampa. Tickets are on sale now, costing $40 for general admission seating, and available at all Ticketmaster outlets, at www.ticketmaster.com and the Hard Rock retail store in the hotel lobby. Doors of the casino’s event pavilion will open at 7 p.m. and the show will start at 8 p.m. Ticket holders must be 18 years of age or older.
From directing MGM’s cult favorite feature film "Dirty Work," to directing and producing the highly acclaimed ABC television movie, "For Hope," to starring in the critically acclaimed, Paul Weitz off-Broadway play, "Privilege, to starring on Broadway in the Tony Award winning "The Drowsy Chaperone," Bob Saget shows no signs of stopping. Ever.
In 2007 came the hugely successful DVD release of "Farce of the Penguins," an R-rated comedy/documentary/love story, that he voiced-over, wrote, directed, and produced, with producer David Permut. And then came the hit NBC quiz show "1 VS 100," where Saget ad-libbed his way through the one-hour prime time format. In 2008, "The Comedy Central Roast of Bob Saget" premiered to the second highest ratings of all TV that night, second to the Olympics. And last year his sitcom, "Surviving Suburbia" aired on ABC.
For many years now, Saget has been a proud board member of the Scleroderma Research Foundation. He co-produces and hosts "Cool Comedy Hot Cuisine" events in Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco.
In 2010 he shot episodes of “Strange Days with Bob Saget,” a comedy documentary series he starred in for The Arts and Entertainment Network. In the series, Bob explored unusual subcultures throughout America: he joined a motorcycle club (riding in a sidecar from Nashville to Daytona), looked for Bigfoot with fellow 'Squatchers' in the Pacific Northwest, joined a frat at Cornell, explored the world of backyard professional wrestling, went to a summer camp with 14 year olds, and got 'lost in Las Vegas' Hunter S. Thompson-style. For more information on Bob Saget, please visit www.bobsaget.com
