Dave Coulier Actor

He met future Full House co-star Bob Saget through the Los Angeles comedy circuit. The two then became good friends and dave briefly lived with Saget and his then-wife Sherri on their couch in the early 1980s as he was struggling to get his career started.

Coulier was initially cast as a player for Saturday Night Live for the 1986 season. Right before the season started, casting changes were made and he was left off the show. It was then said that many of the producers felt he was too similar in humor style to Dana Carvey, who was also joining the show in 1986, and it was the reason as to why the change was made.

Dave has done extensive voice work for shows including Scooby and Scrappy-Doo, The Real Ghostbusters, Slimer! And the Real Ghostbusters (taking over the character of Peter Venkman after Lorenzo Music’s departure from the role), Extreme Ghostbusters, Muppet Babies after Howie Mandel left (Baby Animal, Baby Bunsen, Bean Bunny, and Uncle Statler and Waldorf, and a pre-teen Janice for one episode), The Jetsons, Rude Dog and the Dweebs, and also Detention. Dave was also the host of a comedy series on Nickelodeon known as Out of Control from 1984 to 1985.

Dave Coulier Full House

Coulier is known for playing Joey Gladstone on the ABC sitcom Full House. He then stayed on the show from 1987 until its cancellation in 1995. He got famous for doing voices and impersonations. In addition to Full House, he appeared on George and Leo and Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher. Dave has also hosted America’s Funniest People (first with Arleen Sorkin and later with Tawny Kitaen) and also Opportunity Knocks. In addition, he was also a voice actor in Yogi Bear and the Magical Flight of the Spruce Goose and has hence voiced Felix the Cat on a few occasions.

Dave Coulier Cut It Out

Coulier also put out a solo album called Cut It Out, a self-proclaimed tribute to “tank tops and short shorts.”

He has also taken a few acting parts appearing in the Disney Channel Original Movie’s The Thirteenth Year and The Even Stevens Movie (where he had a cameo as a reality show host) in addition to his voice work, as well as the Nickelodeon original movie Shredderman Rules and he also wrote and starred in an unaired pilot for FX called Whispers and Balls.

Coulier also founded his own children’s entertainment company F3 Entertainment, in 2000. He appeared on season three of The Surreal Life in 2003. Dave appeared on the TV reality show Skating with Celebrities on FOX, where he was paired with Olympic medalist Nancy Kerrigan in 2006. They were however eliminated in episode four.

Dave is a member of Duck’s Breath Mystery Theater touring comedy troupe (which he claims is a clean comedy but “not quite as creepy” as Full House) as well as being the host of the series Animal Kidding. Dave’s work on Robot Chicken is probably his most “adult” to date, voicing off-color situations, like Popeye savagely beating Wimpy over a debt.

Chikara, professional wrestling promotion based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, announced that Coulier was elected by the Chikara Board of Directors as the new commissioner of the company on June 2, 2008, a position that he held for two years until the next election which took place on May 25, 2010. He is the successor to former Commissioner and fellow Full House cast member Bob Saget.

Dave provided the voice for Bob McKenzie on the Canadian animated series Bob & Doug in 2009. Which is based on the SCTV characters Bob and Doug McKenzie. He became the first person other than Rick Moranis to portray the character, as Rick (who serves as executive producer) was not interested in resuming the part. He says he understands that longtime fans might be skeptical of his take on the role, but he could not also help jumping at the chance to portray one of his favorite comic characters. “It’s huge shoes to fill, stepping into Rick Moranis’ shoes. It’s such an established, great character and I guess the only thing I have going for me is that it kind of sounds like and that half of my family is from Canada.”

Dave continued to make regular television appearances as the host of shows such as America’s Funniest People and also America’s Most Talented Kid. Coulier continues to tour the U.S. and Canada as a stand-up comedian.

He reprises his role as Joey Gladstone for the Full House spin-off Fuller House.

Dave Coulier Stand Up

His stand-up routine is centered on his ability to mimic celebrities and cartoon characters, a talent that has now given him a second career in voice acting. Many of his bits involve putting well-known characters into unexpected situations.

He has also been known to include harmonica playing in his act. His material is largely family-friendly, a position he has extended to his youth-oriented comedy website, cleanguys.TV.

Dave was featured on the Clean Guys of Comedy Tour, a family-friendly comedy group in April 2008. The tour then includes Ryan Hamilton from Last Comic Standing and Kivi Rogers.
