Comedian Dave Coulier to Appear at Gannon March 27

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 celebration.

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 Music Hall."

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 faculty reaction."

General admission tickets for Dave Coulier are $15 and are available only at gannontickets.com. Gannon students can also purchase tickets for $5 at gannontickets.com. Tickets will be sold at the door starting at 6:30 p.m.
