Robert Lane "Bob" Saget (born May 17, 1956) is an American stand-up comedian, actor, and television host. His television roles include Danny Tanner on Full House (1987–95) and hosting America's Funniest Home Videos from 1989 to 1997. Saget is also known for his adult-oriented stand-up routine. He also provided the voice of the future Ted Mosby on How I Met Your Mother from 2005 to 2014.


S'il est surtout célèbre auprès du public américain pour son rôle phare de père veuf élevant seul ses trois filles dans la sitcom La Fête à la maison, et la présentation plusieurs années durant de l'émission America's Funniest Home Videos, il est également connu, en tant qu'humoriste, pour son humour provocateur, obscène et indécent. Il apparaît présentant cette émission dans la saison 1 de South Park dans l'épisode "La mort"

En outre, il donne sa voix au narrateur, Ted Mosby âgé, dans la série How I Met Your Mother.

Il réalise en 1996 Au-delà des maux, un téléfilm inspiré de l'histoire de sa propre sœur, Gay Saget, décédée de sclérodermie trois ans plus tôt.

Il anime depuis 2010 sa propre émission de télévision, Strange Days with Bob Saget, diffusée sur la chaîne de télévision A&E.

Il a été marié à Sherri Kramer Saget de 1982 à 1997 avec laquelle il a eu 3 filles : des jumelles (Aubrey Saget et Lara Melanie Saget, nées le 16 octobre 1989) et Jennifer Belle Saget (née le 18 novembre 1992).

Il mesure 1,93 m.

Ses parents s'appellent Dolly et Benjamin M. Saget (1917-2007).

Bob est ami avec Dana Delany (Desperate Housewives, Body of Proof).

Il apparaît dans les saisons 2, 6 et 7 de la série télévisée Entourage, dans laquelle il joue son propre rôle.

En 2018, il joue un célèbre présentateur TV dans l'épisode 6 (saison 1) de la série The Good Coop : "La star de la télé est-elle coupable?" (Did the TV Star Do It?). L'épisode fait plusieurs fois référence à son rôle de père dans La Fête à la maison.

Samuel L. Jackson narrates the story about a group of male penguins that make a 70-mile trek to go to their breeding grounds where females are waiting to have sex with them. These penguins include Carl (Bob Saget) and Jimmy (Lewis Black), two friends who talk about relationships and other things as they meet new characters including Marcus (Tracy Morgan), a penguin who likes to kid around and brag about his huge penis (an illogical point, since penguins do not have penises and instead have cloacas), and Steve the snowy owl (Jonathan Katz), who gives Carl advice on his life in a Freudian kind of way while billing him for the two quick sessions. Meanwhile, Melissa (Christina Applegate) and Vicky (Mo'Nique) argue about men and other women who bother them as they wait for their mates to arrive at the breeding grounds.

At the Central Park Zoo, Marty the zebra is celebrating his tenth birthday, but longs to see the rest of the world from outside his pampered life at the zoo, believing that he can find wide-open spaces to run around in, like in Connecticut. Marty's best friend, Alex the lion, attempts to cheer up his friend by singing Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" with him. Still unsatisfied, Marty gets some tips from the zoo's penguins: Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private. The penguins are similarly trying to escape the zoo. Marty's friends — Alex the lion, Melman the giraffe, and Gloria the hippopotamus — realize Marty's folly and try to follow him. The four, along with the penguins and the chimpanzees Mason and his silent friend Phil, eventually find themselves at Grand Central Station, but are quickly sedated by tranquilizer darts when Alex's attempt to communicate with humans is mistaken for aggression. The zoo, under pressure from animal-rights activists, is forced to ship the animals, by sea, to a Kenyan wildlife preserve. During their travels, the penguins escape from their enclosure and take over the ship, intent on taking it to Antarctica. Their antics on the bridge cause the crates containing Alex, Marty, Melman, and Gloria to fall off the boat and wash ashore on Madagascar.

In 1986, Harry Dunne (Derek Richardson) finally gets his chance to go to regular school. At the same time, Lloyd Christmas (Eric Christian Olsen) has been adopted and exchanged several times until he is finally accepted by the school janitor, Ray (Luis Guzmán). Harry bumps into Lloyd on the way to school, in search for a treasure his mother (Mimi Rogers) asked him to find, and as if it were destiny, the two instantly became the best of friends. Lloyd introduces Harry to his "friend", Turk (Elden Henson), the school bully whose main function in life appears to be making Lloyd's life miserable. After putting Lloyd in a trash can, he hoists the two friends up a flagpole. Meanwhile, the corrupt Principal Collins (Eugene Levy) is searching for a way to get a large amount of money to get a condominium in Waikiki, Hawaii for him and his girlfriend, Ms. Heller (Cheri Oteri), the school's cafeteria lady. Seeing Harry and Lloyd getting hoisted on a flagpole, Principal Collins establishes a fake "special needs" class to swindle $100,000 from a former Special Needs student named Richard Moffit. Obviously, Harry and Lloyd are more than thrilled to help, unaware of the real reason, and thus find themselves signing up people who are "special" for the class. These include a reluctant Turk; a teen named Toby (Josh Braaten) who broke his leg and arm in a skateboarding accident—and whom Lloyd believes is a "little crippled boy"; Toby's gorgeous girlfriend, Terri (Teal Redmann); geeky Lewis (Shia LaBeouf), whom Harry and Lloyd believe is a centaur after seeing him half-dressed in his horse mascot uniform; Cindy (Michelle Krusiec), also known as "Ching-Chong," a Chinese exchange student who later becomes Turk's girlfriend; and Carl (William Lee Scott), a badly injured football player obsessed with his sport. Ms. Heller becomes the teacher of the fake class and holds it in Ray's tool shed.
