Dave Coulier stars in a great new show called Live+Local. The former Full House star has another hit on his hands. His new show Live+Local is a perfect vehicle for Dave. A warm, weathered, guy, who can’t help but say the wrong thing at the right time which is only exasperated by the fact that he usually has a microphone in front of his face. It’s a great show and a fun little vehicle for Dave a sharp group of comic actors. You only have to watch one episode to not only see all the work and the episodes acting on Full and Fuller House have brought to his tool kit, but also the confidence and ‘set-sense’ he’s gotten from directing episodes of Fuller House.
Full Dis-‘bro-sure’ Dave is one of my best friends in the whole world. I love him so so much. He was the best man at my wedding, he is my daughter’s Godfather, was my roommate for seven years and the person I have laughed the hardest and the most with in the whole world.

Everyone on the planet knows Dave as ‘Uncle Joey’, a lot of folks know him as a seasoned stand-up comic, but some may not. I met Dave at the very, very start of his career when he opened for me at Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle and blew the door off of the room to the point I could hardly follow him. He was fantastic. He’s truly one of the most naturally likable performers on stage I’ve ever seen.
If you want to have some fun, watch some pieces of Dave’s very first show OUT OF CONTROL. A spoof on talk shows on Nickelodeon that was really ahead of it’s time. And super fun. I remember people loved it. He shot it in this tiny little studio in a strip mall out in the valley. A place that could just as easily been shooting porn rather than a kids talk comedy show. (Out of Birth Control.) Sorry.
I can’t believe how many people over the years have told me how much they loved Out of Control. It had a Second City vibe to it and Dave was a natural.
Not a lot of people know this, but he was also in a Cheech and Chong flick
Here’s ‘Cooler’ doing some stand-up.
