Bob Saget revels in new dirtier image

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Comedian Bob Saget, who came to fame doing wholesome comedy on U.S. TV, has reinvented himself as a foul-mouthed comic.

Saget, 50, told the New York Post he embraced dirty comedy for his roles in films like "The Aristocrats" and "Farce of the Penguins."

In both films, Saget -- the father of three -- offers viewers a glimpse of the outrageous humor that TV audiences never saw when he was playing Danny Tanner on "Full House," or when he was the host of "America's Funniest Home Videos."

In "Farce" -- a Saget-directed parody of "The March of the Penguins" -- he voices two penguins whose filthy minds likely rival his own, the Post said.

The comedian, who started his career with similar foul-mouthed comedians like Sam Kinison and Roseanne Barr, said his father was likely his main influence.

"I just find silly and dirty combined to be hilarious because it's just not appropriate," he said. "And it's probably just my upbringing. My dad had a sick sense of humor, and my mom would say, 'Please stop that.'"
