He could not have been more wrong. In fact, it was Bob Saget, the all-American TV dad from Full House and perhaps the foulest comedian in the country. "Bob Saget is the dirtiest comic who's ever lived. Nobody touches him," says Penn Jillette, the verbal half of the comic duo Penn & Teller. Jillette put Saget in his new movie The Aristocrats, in which 100 comedians tell different variations on the same dirty joke.
