I can't recall the last time I had such high expectations for a piece of television entertainment and was more disappointed at the finished product. BOB SAGET: THAT AIN'T RIGHT is an HBO comedy concert that marked the official return to stand-up comedy for Bob Saget, former star of FULL HOUSE and AMERICA'S FUNNIEST HOME VIDEOS. Now I can absolutely relate to Saget's desire with this concert to distance himself from his image as the king of family-oriented television, but he really drives the message home with a sledgehammer approach here. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with adult language, but Saget really overdoes it here...Richard Pryor never used the "F" word as much as Saget does in this special and most of the time, it has very little to do with the content of his comedy. He seems to be using it purely for shock value and cheap laughs. His material here is primarily crude, tasteless bathroom humor that just didn't work for me. Saget is working so hard here to let the world know that he is not Danny Tanner (his FULL HOUSE character) by being as tasteless and shocking as he possibly can and it gets very old very quickly. And the saddest part of this debacle is that Bob Saget IS a very funny and intelligent guy who has already proved that he is not Danny Tanner (if you don't believe it, check out his guest appearance on HBO's ENTOURAGE). He's an intelligent comic presence who, for shock value, has checked his quick comic mind at the door and has chosen just to shock and gross out his audience. Saget did share one very story involving an incident in a restroom with his FULL HOUSE co-star John Stamos, but other than that, this concert was a nasty, unappealing disaster. A real shame.
