Actor and comedian Dave Coulier, known for telling the Olsen twins to “cut it out” as "Uncle Joey" in the TV show “Full House,” performed a stand up comedy routine April 24 in Plachta Auditorium.

Upon taking the stage to a cheering audience, Coulier had to set one thing straight. 

“No, I’m not John Stamos,” he said.

The St. Clair Shores comedian said he has recently moved back to Michigan and has been doing comedy sets at multiple universities. The comedian performed at Western Michigan University in 2016 and Ferris State University in 2018. 

Coulier spoke about his time on “Full House,” as well as reprising his role as Uncle Joey in the 2016 reboot series, “Fuller House.” The act included material on everything from Coulier’s childhood at Notre Dame High School in St. Clair Shores to a stranger’s impressive fart that Coulier described as “a miracle.”

The event was hosted by the CMU Program Board and was free and open to the public. Comedian Seaton Smith opened the show and introduced Coulier.

Lansing junior Jared Arking came to the show because he’s a fan of “Full House” and the new “Fuller House.”

“Oh my god, it was hilarious,” Arking said. “I found it funny because it was so relatable.”

Bay City resident Uriah Larason isn’t a student at CMU, but he had to come as soon as he heard Coulier was performing.

“I had a couple coworkers who said they were coming to the show and I’ve always been a big fan from 'Full House,'” Larason said. “It was an excellent show, loved every minute of it.”

To close the show, Coulier performed some jokes and songs on a harmonica.
