Profile Bio Text
David Alan "Dave" Coulier (born September 21, 1959) is an American stand-up comedian, impressionist, television and voice actor, and television host. He is well-known for his role as Joey Gladstone on the ABC sitcom Full House, which ran from 1987 to 1995. Coulier was born in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. He graduated, in 1977, from Notre Dame High School, in Harper Woods, Michigan. Coulier got his start by doing stand-up during lunch hours in which he impersonated his high-school principal over the PA system. Coulier has done extensive voice work for shows including Extreme Ghostbusters, The Real Ghostbusters and Slimer! and the Real Ghostbusters (taking over the character of Peter Venkman after Lorenzo Music`s departure from the role), Muppet Babies after Howie Mandel left (Baby Animal, Baby Bunsen, Bean Bunny and Uncle Statler and Waldorf, even a pre-teen Janice for one episode), Scooby and Scrappy-Doo, The Jetsons, Rude Dog and the Dweebs, Detention and Teen Titans.. From 1984 to 1986, he was also the host of a comedy series on Nickelodeon known as Out of Control. However, Coulier is probably most famous for the role of Joey Gladstone on the sitcom Full House. He stayed on the show from 1987 until its cancellation in 1995. He was famous for doing voices and impersonations. In addition to Full House, Coulier starred in the children`s comedy series Out of Control and appeared on George and Leo and Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher. He has also hosted America`s Funniest People with Arleen Sorkin and later with Tawny Kitaen and Opportunity Knocks. Additionally, he was also a voice actor in Yogi Bear and the Magical Flight of the Spruce Goose, and has voiced Felix the Cat on a few occasions. He also put out a solo album called Cut It Out, a self proclaimed tribute to "tank tops and short shorts." In 2009, Coulier provided the voice for Bob McKenzie on the Canadian animated series Bob & Doug, based on the SCTV characters Bob and Doug McKenzie. Coulier became the first person other than Rick Moranis to portray the character, as Moranis (who serves as executive producer) was not interested in resuming the part. Coulier says he understands that longtime fans might be skeptical of his take on the role, but he couldn`t help jumping at the chance to portray one of his favourite comic characters. "It`s huge shoes to fill, stepping into Rick Moranis` shoes. It`s such an established, great character and I guess the only thing I have going for me is that it kind of sounds alike and that half of my family is from Canada." His mother`s family is from Bathurst, New Brunswick.
Coulier was married for two years to Jayne Modean and has one son named Luc. In August 2008, Dave Coulier admitted that he believed the Alanis Morissette song "You Oughta Know" was about him.
