I think “America’s Funniest Home Videos” is the funniest show on television, but Saget was a bad match for it. His schtick is 100% irony, and the videos are 100% straightforward. A good AFV host will be minimally distracting from the videos, which are the point of the show. Tom Bergeron is far better.
Saget’s stand-up is the reason I’m a fan. His turn in The Aristocrats was a scream. His incredible rapid-fire delivery, and masochism verging on ritual self-abasement, are an obvious Rodney Dangerfield legacy. I could watch him do stand-up for hours.
