One of the biggest TV stars from the 1980s and ’90s is bringing his stand-up comedy act to Brighton.
Dave Coulier, who starred on “Full House” for its full run from 1987 to 1995, is headlining a comedy show at the Brighton Center for the Performing Arts at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 28. The show is part of the BCPA’s 2010-2011 season.
Tickets are $25 for reserved seating – purchase by phone with Visa/Mastercard (810-299-4130, press 0), or at the Brighton Community Education office in the Miller Intergenerational Center, 850 Spencer Road in Brighton.
Coulier is a St. Clair Shores native who cut his comedy teeth in the Detroit area in the early 1980s, performing with the likes of Tim Allen and Sinbad at places like Mark Ridley’s Comedy Club in Royal Oak. He moved to Los Angeles when he made it big on “Full House.” Coulier was also the co-host of “America’s Funniest People,” a huge hit on ABC in the 1990s.
He’s performed on “The Tonight Show” and most every comed
y show on the cable dial, and has also done voice work for numerous TV cartoons.
Coulier is a rarity among stand-up comics – a clean performer whose mate
rial is suitable for any audience. The Brighton show promises to be very clean – and very funny.
Opening for Coulier in Brighton is Stunt Johnson Theater, a four-man comedy group from Michigan that’s appeared around the country, including at the Las Vegas Improv. Stunt Johnson mixes skits, songs and TV parodies in its slam-bang act.
