Dave Coulier – Career

Early Days

Dave Coulier first got the taste of stand-up comedy in high school. Back then he used to impersonate his principal and teachers over the school’s PA system. 

But a career for a young man with no links in Hollywood was hard. While he struggled as a comedian, his good friend Bob Saget let him live on his couch in the early 1980s.

In 1986, Dave Coulier was cast as a player for the show Saturday Night Live but was left off the show when casting was changed. Fortunately, the next year in 1987, he was cast as Joey Gladstone in the sitcom Full House along with his friend Bob Saget. Coulier played the role until the show was canceled in 1995.

Apart from his role in Fuller House, Dave Coulier has done extensive voice acting. He has lent his voice for Scooby and Scrappy-Doo, The Real Ghostbusters, Slimer! and the Real Ghostbusters, Extreme Ghostbusters, Muppet Babies, The Jetsons, Rude Dog and the Dweebs, Detention, and Bob & Doug, among others.
