Dave Coulier, a standup comedian, impressionist, and actor best known for his role as Joey Gladstone on the ABC sitcom Full House, will perform at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, Oct. 5, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $16.
Coulier’s stand-up routine is centered on his ability to mimic celebrities and cartoon characters, a talent that has given him a second career in voice acting. He often puts well-known characters into unexpected situations and floods the room with laughter. Coulier’s act sometimes showcases his harmonica playing, and his material is largely family-friendly. Coulier is proud of his “clean” family-friendly humor and founded an organization called The Clean Guys of Comedy.
Two years after his 1977 graduation, Coulier relocated to Los Angeles and immediately went to work for Hanna Barbera Studios doing voice-over work including the voice of Scooby Doo. Soon after, he began to focus on acting and landed roles on shows such Newhart and Evening at the Improv. Early in his career, Coulier developed his signature catchphrase, “Cut it out.” That catchphrase, along with his loveable imitations of characters such as Bullwinkle, Popeye, and Pepe LePew, made him a fan favorite as Uncle Joey during his eight-year stint on Full House. He was also the host of America’s Funniest People, a home video show featuring silly and outrageous video clips.
