Comedian Dave Coulier Will Perform At Stuart's Lyric Theatre Ahead Of 'Fuller House' Debut
When comedian Dave Coulier visits Stuart’s Lyric Theatre next month, organizers are expecting a full house.
And that’s not just because of the stand-up comic’s beloved role as “Uncle Joey” on a certain ‘90s sitcom.
“I’ve got to work with Dave several times, and he’s one of the funniest guys I’ve ever seen,” producer and local comedy club performer Casey Peruski said.
Coulier, who has a sizable following from his stand-up career, is set to hit the stage on Wednesday, Feb. 10—just two weeks ahead of the highly anticipated Netflix reboot of “Full House.”
The timing, Peruski said, couldn’t have worked any better.
“We’ve been trying to get Dave for a couple years. He’s a guy that’s in demand,” he said.
It was shortly after Coulier signed the contract for the Lyric Theatre that Netflix announced “Fuller House” would debut on Feb. 26.
Coulier’s show is the first Peruski and his uncle, Michael “Spaz” McGoorty, bring to the Lyric Theatre. The duo, known as Casey N Spaz Comedy, have produced more than 400 acts on the Treasure Coast. They will open for Coulier that night.
Peruski, who grew up in Jensen Beach, said he’s worked with plenty of notable comedians throughout the years, including “Saturday Night Live” cast members, but noted he has yet to encounter a comedian who has received more standing ovations than Coulier.
So, what makes him such a memorable act?
“He’s very talented in his voices and mimics that he does. Also, he plays the harmonica and incorporates that in his routine,” Peruski said.
But despite growing up watch “Full House,” Peruski said he was never starstruck upon meeting Coulier. In fact, he said, the comedian was, simply, a “nice guy.”
“Reminded me of my other uncles, ironically enough,” he said.
The show, rated PG-13, is expected to sell out.
