Dave Coulier Opens Blue Water Film Festival
PORT HURON (WWJ) – Michigan native Dave Coulier will be providing a night of fun and hilarity at McMorran Theater on Thursday, Oct. 6, as part of The Blue Water Film Festival.
Coulier’s 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.
Coulier 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 almost 200 shows produced) and can now be seen as part of the popular Nick At Nite roster. Additionally, the show is currently in worldwide syndication in over 100 countries, and airs domestically everyday on ABC Family.
He followed this success by hosting his second prime-time hit series America’s Funniest People, which ran on ABC for four seasons (1991-1994). Coulier also handled the hosting chores for ABC’s The World’s Funniest Videos, and hosted his own series, Out of Control for Nickelodeon.
Highly regarded for his voice-over talent, Coulier’s additional credits include many Saturday morning cartoon favorites. He started out doing voices on Hanna-Barbera’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. Coulier provided the voice of Peter Venkman for The Real Ghostbusters cartoon, as well as voices for the Cartoon Networks’ Dexter’s Laboratory.
Coulier’s stand-up act earned him regular appearances on The Tonight Show, HBO’s Detroit Comedy Jam and HBO’s Comic Relief. He continues to enjoy sold out performances of his stand up act across the country.
Coulier is currently finishing production of a documentary film entitled “Cut it Out,” a retrospective look at the staying power of Full House. Also, Dave and four other comedians will travel across the country on a theatre tour as “The Clean Guys of Comedy,” a stand up comedy show for the entire family. In addition, Coulier has launched CleanGuys.TV, an Internet site featuring a variety of clean comedy including stand up, sketch, and short films.
Tickets for his McMorran show on Oct. 6 are priced at $12 each. The show starts at 8 pm.
