Bob Saget Net Worth: Bob Saget is an American stand-up comedian, actor and television host who has a net worth of $100 million dollars. He rose to prominence as a stand up comedian in the 80's and was known for his very risqué humor. He became more widely known when he joined the cast of "Full House", a family friendly show that was a huge hit. He also hosted, "America's Funniest Home Videos". Born Robert Lane Saget on May 17, 1956, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he has made a name for himself starring in numerous successful TV shows. But let's not underestimate the fact that he has also been a standup comedian for over thirty years. Originally intending to become a doctor, Saget would forever be thankful to his English teacher, Elaine Zimmerman, who saw his creative potential and urged him to seek a career in films. Thus, he enrolled in Temple University's film school, where he created a black and white film titled "Through Adam's eyes" which received various prizes and honors from the school authorities. Even though he started his career in stand up comedy, touring aggressively throughout the country, he first tasted success once he appeared on TV. In 1987, he was cast as Danny Tanner in Full House, which became a huge success both among critics and family viewers. Two years later, Saget was cast as the host of America's Funniest Home Videos, a role he held until 1997. He spent the 1990s working both on Full House and AFV simultaneously, after which he got engaged in various other projects. Ranging from his HBO special "That Ain't Right" to his scene-stealing cameos in "Entourage," and "The Aristocrats," he had the chance to effectively embrace his dark side on several occasions. In addition to the above, he directed MGM's cult favorite movie "Dirty Work," directed and produced the highly acclaimed ABC television movie, "For Hope," as well as he starred in the critically acclaimed, Paul Weitz off-Broadway play, "Privilege" and the Broadway Tony Award winning "The Drowsy Chaperone." Utterly loving his hyphenate ever-changing career choices, he could be also seen as the narrator of the CBS sitcom "How I Met Your Mother," which premiered on September 19, 2005.
