BWW TV: Saget's Back! HAND TO GOD Gets Ready to Welcome a New Pastor Greg

As BroadwayWorld previously reported, comedy and television icon Bob Saget will step into the role of 'Pastor Greg' in the Tony® Award-nominated comedy Hand to God beginning November 3, 2015 through the production's previously announced closing on January 3, 2016. Saget returns to Broadway after making his Broadway debut in 2007 in the Tony® winning musical The Drowsy Chaperone. He will join current Hand to Godcast members Steven Boyer, Geneva Carr,Sarah Stiles, and Michael Oberholtzer. 3-time Tony® nominee Marc Kudisch, who originated the role of 'Pastor Greg', exits the production on November 1st to begin production on Baritones Unbound. Hand to God plays at the Booth Theatre (222 West 45th Street) through January 3, 2016 before immediately transferring to London's West End, with performances beginning on February 5, 2016 at the famed Vaudeville Theatre.

In a statement, Bob Saget said: "I've been wanting so much to come back to Broadway, especially if the material was just too good to resist. 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. Didn't see it coming but beyond delighted. So looking forward to getting onstage with this miraculous cast in this incredibly funny and poignant play."

Bob Saget is a Grammy-nominated stand-up comedian, actor, director and television host. It was his family-friendly roles as the loveable Danny Tanner on "Full House" and as the original host of "America's Funniest Home Videos" that made Saget a household name, but it is his edgy stand-up routines, comedy specials, and appearances in The Aristocrats and "Entourage" that solidified his reputation as a true original with an irreverent sense of humor and unique personality.
