Dance Monkey: Bob Saget

A visiting comic on the hot seat

Bob Saget

When you were in Boston in April, you crashed a Guster concert by bursting through a paper banner onto the stage. How can you possibly top that?
That paper was very thin. I’d like to do it again but use paper that’s a couple more bond levels. That thin paper diminished my machismo.

It is so damned hot in Boston right now. How are you going to deal with it?
I’m going to teabag myself in Boston Harbor.

You were awesomely creepy on Law & Order SVU. What should the next Law & Order spinoff be?
Detectives Stabler and Benson have a baby that becomes a really, really young cop. It goes to elementary schools, because that’s where crime starts.

Be honest: did you pick up any parenting tips from being on Full House?
Yes. I mean, it’s pretty obvious that you can’t have a horse in the living room. I actually have three daughters, and you want to put up a guard around the house and protect them from everything, because you love them so very much. I don’t love them, but you do.

    If only there were some way to watch a con-artist houseboy give his cougar sugar mama a squirming reach-around, charm the pants off a candy-necklace string of countless empty-eyed Hollywood stick figures, lose his heart to an untouchable social chameleon, and, in the process, find himself .

    While New York is grittier, Los Angeles juicier, and Boston is wicked smahter, for some odd reason it is Montreal that, for two weeks every summer, becomes the epicenter of the comedy universe.

    Warm weather is supposed to be accessorized by lackaday, by a breezy sensibility best enjoyed with a frosty tall boy in one hand, the sloppy product of a back-yard barbecue in the other. Instead, I find myself struggling to balance my beer between my knees and my overstocked paper plate on my thigh as I furiously poke at my BlackBerry.
