Bob Saget on celebrity, his testicles and how Funniest Home Videos created YouTube

Anyone over 25 remembers him as heroic single dad Danny Tanner on Full House, or the jolly host of America's Funniest Home Videos. But anyone plugged into standup comedy over the last decade also knows him as the desperately foul-mouthed comic with jokes so vivid and foul he makes William Burroughs look like Mitt Romney.

Saget's on his way to Denver this weekend for a four-show run at Comedy Works South; in advance of those shows, we caught up with this chameleon of comedy to chat about ditching celebrity, penis puppetry and whether or not America's Funniest Home Videos invented YouTube.
