It’s been a long time since Danny Tanner, folks.

Comedy Central will air the roast America’s favorite dad and one of the dirtiest comedians out there, Bob Saget, on Sunday.

“It’s an honor…My ass is already sore,” stated Saget.

“Bob Saget is one of the true nice guys.  I’ve apologized to him in advance for what this evening holds in store for him,” said Elizabeth Porter, senior vice president of specials and talent for the network. The roast was taped in Los Angeles and will be aired for the first time.

Saget struck green when he stared in two top-ten primetime television shows at the same time: Full House and America’s Funniest Home Videos.

Those who have seen his stage show know him as a slightly more adult-oriented entertainer.

In 2007, Saget kicked off a national theater tour that continues through 2008 and starred in the one-hour HBO special, “That Ain’t Right,” which is available on DVD.  For more information visit
