The Cast of Full House Rescues Interrupted Bye Bye Birdie Performance

John Stamos and Bob Saget

Last night, as reported by ArtsBeat, Playbill and some others, during its final preview performance before opening tonight, the Broadway revival of Bye Bye Birdie was delayed due to problems with the set. But instead of widespread awkwardness, annoyance and profuse apologies, star John Stamos made magic happen.

After begging comedian Don Rickles for some help to little avail, Stamos spotted Full House co-star Bob Saget in the audience, whom he brought up on stage for some impromptu stand-up, spoken into the microphone mounted on Stamos’ forehead. Said Saget: “I’m really glad your crotch isn’t miked.” Clearly, they should hire Saget and add this routine to the show, since they’ll have to live down this exceptional bit of improv for the rest of the musical’s run.
