Bob Saget to appear in Broadway play 'Hand to God'

Staff Writer

NEW YORK (AP) โ€” Comedian Bob Saget is returning to Broadway โ€” as a pastor.

"Hand to God" lead producer Kevin McCollum said Wednesday that the former "Full House" star will replace Marc Kudisch as the pastor in the play that features a satanic hand puppet. Saget starts Nov. 3.

"After seeing 'Hand to God' with my daughters, I knew immediately that I'd pounce at the opportunity to be a part of it if I could," Saget said in a statement.

Playwright Robert Askins' bracing comedy, mixes violence, swearing, brutal honesty, parental failure, church hypocrisy, and plenty of sex โ€” of both human and puppet varieties.

Saget, the original host of "America's Funniest Home Videos," made his Broadway debut in 2007 in "The Drowsy Chaperone." His films include "The Aristocrats."
