How Bob Saget’s net worth was built

Bob Saget started as a stand-up comic in Los Angeles but made his career in television, where he is best known as a TV dad.

His first appearance on TV was on CBS’s “The Morning Program,” where he added a bit of humor to the news program in 1987. That same year, Saget landed one of his biggest roles as Danny Tanner on the family sitcom “Full House.” In 1990, he signed on to be the host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”

After leaving “Full House” in 1995 and “America’s Funniest Home Videos” in 1997, Saget sought to break out of his funny dad role. Other projects include “That Ain’t Right,” “Entourage,” “The Aristocrats,” and “Farce of the Penguins.” He also became the narrator for the hit show “How I Met Your Mother.”

His directing credits include “Dirty Work” and “For Hope.” As of April 2017, Saget’s well-rounded career led to a net worth of $100 million, according to TheRichest.com website.
