Bob Saget Joins Broadway’s ‘Hand to God’

Bob Saget has signed on to join the cast of Broadway play “Hand to God,” stepping for the Tony-nominated comedy’s final months before the show ends it runs in January.

Saget will play Pastor Greg in the production, about a young man whose foul-mouthed hand puppet wreaks havoc on his life at home and at church. The actor currently in the role of the pastor, Marc Kudisch, departs in November to work on the upcoming Chicago production “Baritones Unbound.”

Saget was last on Broadway in 2007 in “The Drowsy Chaperone,” a musical that, like “Hand to God,” was produced by Kevin McCollum. The actor has earned a lot of attention lately for his role in “Full House” and his upcoming reprise of the gig in Netflix series “Fuller House.” He’ll also guest star on “Grandfathered,” the new Fox comedy that stars Saget’s “Full House” co-star, John Stamos.

In “Hand to God,” he’ll join original cast members Steven Boyer, Geneva Carr, Sarah Stiles and Michael Oberholtzer. He joins the production Nov. 3 and will stick with it through its Jan. 3 closing.

In February the production, written by Robert Askins and directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel, will move to London to start a run at the Vaudeville Theater that begins Feb. 5. No casting for that U.K. incarnation has yet been set.
