Dave Coulier went from stand-up comedy to co-starring on
Full House, and all the while has covered the spectrum of family entertainment
Dave Coulier's (pronounced Cool-Yay) story is a refreshing
one for Hollywood - nice guys can finish first. As an actor/ comedian
/voice-over artist, his many talents are much in demand.
From standup comedy on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson
and Jay Leno, to his starring role on the hit television series, Full House,
Dave has covered the spectrum of family entertainment.
Dave is perhaps best known for his work on the long-running
hit ABC television series, Full House, which aired for eight seasons
(1987-1995, with 192 shows produced) and can now be seen in worldwide
syndication in over 100 countries, and airs domestically everyday on TNT, TBS
and WGN. Dave followed this success by hosting his second prime-time hit series
America' Funniest People, which ran on ABC for four seasons (1991-1994).
Additionally, Dave handled the hosting chores for ABC's The World's Funniest
Videos, and hosted his own series, Out of Control for Nickelodeon.
With his entire career rooted in family entertainment, it
seemed to be a natural fit for Dave to form his own children's entertainment
company. The result, F3 Entertainment, was founded in early 2001 and is already
enjoying great success with its first, two-CD release, " Weaver Beaver and
Friends," which are available at Borders Books nationwide.
You may have just seen Dave as one of the judges on the new
family reality show, My Life Is A Sitcom, on the ABC Family network. He will
also star as the voices of Felix The Cat, The Professor and Rock Bottom in several
upcoming Felix The Cat animated feature films for video release. Dave has also
provided voices for Dexter's Laboratory on the Cartoon Network, as well as The
Zeta Project for Warner Brothers.
Dave is now hosting a new TV series, "Animal
Kidding" on the popular Animal Planet network. "It's kind of like,
Kids Say The Darndest Things with animals, and a lot of hidden camera
bits," says Dave. The show airs every Friday night at 6PM and 9PM
(Pacific) and throughout the weekend on Animal Planet.
Highly regarded for his voice-over talent, Dave's additional
credits include many Saturday morning cartoon favorites. He started out doing
voices on Hanna-Barber's Scooby Doo and the re-syndicated version of The
Jetson's. Dave then went on to lend his versatile voice to Jim Henson's Emmy
Award-winning animated series, Muppet Babies, where he portrayed Animal and
Dr.Bunsen Honeydew for the run of the series, and then became the voice of
three additional characters: Waldorf and Statler (the two old guys in the
balcony on the original Muppet Show) and Bean Bunny. Additionally, Dave also
voiced the character of Peter Venkman on The Real Ghostbusters cartoon (played
by Bill Murray in the movies).
Some of Dave's additional credits include guest appearances
on such television series as Newhart and Family Ties and the game shows To Tell
the Truth and Hollywood Squares. Dave's stand-up act earned him regular
appearances on "The Tonight Show," HBO's "Detroit Comedy
Jam," Showtime's "Laugh-A-Thon" and "Evening At The
lmprov" for the A&E Network. His additional credits include performing
on HBO's "Comic Relief," frequent guest spots on "The Arsenio
Hall Show" and "The Dennis Miller Show," and hosting "The 4th
Annual Kids' Choice Awards" on Nickelodeon and A&E's "Evening At
The lmprov." Dave continues to enjoy sold out performances of his stand up
act across the country.
