Dirty Daddy is the story of how Bob Saget, once a clean-cut family man and star of Full House, went from being America’s favorite dad to one of its most notorious comedians. Telling all with true tales of debauchery, irreverence and indecent hilarity, Dirty Daddy reveals the real life behind closed doors at home and on the road. From his struggles as an out-of-work actor fighting just to survive in Hollywood, to stories about fellow legends like Richard Pryor and Robin Williams (with plenty more dirt on everyone in between), Saget pulls no punches in sharing anecdotes that are equal parts shocking and side-splittingly funny.
