Bob Saget is a Dirty Daddy.  

Bob Saget
Barnes & Noble, 33 E. 17th St, at Broadway; 212-253-0810; 4/9 at 7 p.m.
At this point, folks are familiar with the Saget split: The man who played the clean-cut, Dustbustering Danny Tanner on the family show Full House also has an affinity for filthy humor. But fans may not be aware that Saget has had to deal with an unusual amount of loss in his life, which he talks about it in his new book, Dirty Daddy. He discusses it with comedian Seth Herzog, and don't worry: There will be dick jokes.

Employee of the Month
Joe's Pub, 425 Lafayette St., nr. Astor Pl.; 212-539-8777; 4/10 at 7 p.m.
Comedy talk-show host Catie Lazarus is back at it again, interviewing folks with jobs way cooler than yours. On the roster: Wallace Shawn, Taylor Mac, and Rosie Perez, who will be signing her book afterwards.


W. Kamau Bell answers your call.   

W. Kamau Bell
The Bell House, 149 7th St., nr. Second Ave., Gowanus, Brooklyn; 718-643-6510; 4/15 at 7 p.m.
W. Kamau Bell's television show Totally Biased was a force to be reckoned with: wickedly disseminating race as The Daily Show wickedly disseminates media. Unfortunately, it was canceled. But fortunately, now Bell has time to tour and do stand-up.

Tracy Morgan and Hannibal Buress
92nd Street Y, 1395 Lexington Ave., nr. 92nd St.; 212-415-5500; 4/16 at 8 p.m.
It might be the most, let's say, unfiltered conversation to grace the 92Y stage (and they had Bob Saget on last night) when local comedian and rising star Buress interviews Morgan about pretty much whatever they feel like, in advance of Morgan's Comedy Central special on April 20.

Tapeheads
Union Hall, 702 Union St., at Fifth Ave., Park Slope, Brooklyn; 718-638-4400; 4/18 at 8:30 p.m.
We were immediately sold by the promised Weezer cover band, but the rest of the night sounds pretty great as well. Two brothers from the same mother host: Hari Kondabolu (Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell) and Ashok (Dapwell from the now-defunct Das Racist), with comedy from Wyatt Cenac, Jean Grae, and Alice Wetterlund. Also, the Weezer cover band is called the Undone Sweaters. Hopefully they don't break Hari's heart.
