Bob Saget ‘Dirty Daddy’ tribute crammed with lewd laughs, numerous love


The raddest, baddest dad America ever had will soon be honored along with his very own Netflix special.

Premiering Friday, “Dirty Daddy: The Bob Saget Tribute” will feature the late comedian’s famous family and friends celebrating his legacy in essentially the most joking — and yet touching — ways possible.

Saget’s widow Kelly Rizzo-Saget, his daughters Lara and Aubrey and “Full House” castmates John Stamos, Dave Coulier and Candace Cameron Bure will all appear within the special, which was filmed on Jan. 30 at The Comedy Store in West Hollywood.

“Keep it short,” comedian Jim Carrey jokes to Rizzo-Saget when it’s her time to talk in a trailer released on Wednesday.

The star-studded bill also includes Tim Allen, Mike Binder, Jackson Browne, Dave Chappelle, Darren Criss, Seth Green, Michael Keaton, Jon Lovitz, John Mayer, Chris Rock, Paul Rodriguez, Jeff Ross and Mike Young.

“I hope everybody here either had Bob as a friend … or someday has a friend like Bob,” Ross said.

“Welcome to the Bob superspreader,” Ross continued as an allusion to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’re comin’ to see ya, Bob,” responded Carrey, looking as much as the heavens with a fake cough.

Binder even joked that the “How I Met Your Mother” narrator once told him he was going to donate his penis to science.

“And really, last week, Kelly got a letter,” Binder said within the trailer. “And it said, ‘Dear Mrs. Saget, we predict you might do higher.’”

But it would be greater than just laughs, as famous friend Carey saluted him: “You created a cathedral of f–king love, Bob Saget.”

In March, the comedian appeared on “Dystopia Tonight With John Poveromo” to advertise the special, revealing that he’d pitched the thought to make use of footage of January’s memorial to Netflix.

“It was a magical night,” Binder said on the podcast. “And we filmed it. And I showed it to Netflix. I said, ‘Take a look at this! Just take a look at 16 minutes of this.’ And Robbie Craw, the top of comedy at Netflix, he just said, ‘That is remarkable.’ And so they bought it as a special.

“It’s just a tremendous special,” he added. “Music — Jackson Brown and John Mayer play this song, a version of ‘These Days,’ together that’s just beautiful. After which everybody gets up and sings, ‘A Dog Licked My Balls,’ which was Bob’s closing song.”

In a newly released interview conducted just before his death, Saget reiterated the love he and his friends had for one another.

“[Age] 60 hit me very hard, but a friend of mine threw an enormous party for me that I didn’t expect it to be. It was Stamos,” he said on Radio Rahim’s “Til This Day” podcast. “I discovered how much love that I had given to receive a lot love from people.

“It’s like ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ when George Bailey, James Stewart, that’s a movie, everybody … an angel takes him through his life and shows him what would’ve happened had he not existed,” Saget said of Frank Capra’s 1946 classic. “And I do know for a indisputable fact that I actually have helped people. I do know that I actually have given a whole lot of like to people because I actually have lots.”

Saget died unexpectedly on Jan. 9 of head trauma inside a hotel room in Orlando, Florida, where was on a stand-up comedy tour. He was 65.
