Posted: March 20, 2017
He may be best known for his work on the silver screen on "Full
House," but for one evening, Monday, March 27 at 7:30 p.m. in
Gannon University's Hammermill Center, comedian Dave Coulier will
be live and very much in the spotlight.
Coulier, perhaps best known as "Uncle Joey" from the hit ABC
television series, "Full House," will be the headliner of the big
spring show presented by Gannon University Activities Programming
Board (APB), and a highlight of the University's annual Springtopia
Coulier's "Uncle Joey" was a mainstay of the cast of "Full
House," which aired for eight seasons (1987-1995, with 192 episodes
produced) and can now be seen on Nick At Nite. The program is a fan
favorite worldwide, syndicated in over 100 countries, with a
reboot, called "Fuller House," that began streaming on Netflix in
2016. In addition to reprising his role as Joey Gladstone, Coulier
is a writer and director on the series.
Coulier later hosted the ABC prime-time series, "The New
America's Funniest People," and his own series, "Out of Control,"
for Nickelodeon. He also hosted Animal Planet "Animal Kidding."
As a guest star, Coulier's credits include VH1's series "The
Surreal Life," CBS's "How I Met Your Mother," "Late Night with
Jimmy Fallon," "OPRAH: Where Are They Now?" and "Skating with
Celebrities," where the former hockey player from Detroit partnered
with Nancy Kerrigan for the Fox Network.
An in-demand voice talent, Coulier has been heard on many
cartoon favorites, including Hanna-Barbera's "Scooby Doo" and the
re-syndicated version of "The Jetsons." On Jim Henson's multiple
Emmy Award-winning animated series, "The Muppet Babies," Coulier
portrayed Animal, Bunsen Honeydew, Waldorf and Statler (the two old
guys in the balcony on the original Muppet Show) and Bean Bunny. He
also voiced Peter Venkman for "The Real Ghostbusters" cartoon and
was heard on "Robot Chicken" and "China, IL" for Cartoon Networks'
Adult Swim lineup.
As a standup comedian, Coulier has appeared on "The Tonight
Show," "HBO's Detroit Comedy Jam" and "Comic Relief at Radio City
Elizabeth Gauriloff, a junior English major from Hamilton,
Virginia and the special events co-chair for APB said, "Last year
we co-sponsored a concert with Edinboro University, but this year
we wanted to get students excited and give them laughter at a
stressful time in the semester, so we wanted to give comedy a shot.
It was a bit of a risk, but we're excited at the student and
