10 Things You Didn’t Know About Fuller House Star Dave Coulier
For almost three decades, Dave Coulier has captured the hearts of fans thanks in large part to his lovable role as Joey Gladstone on Full House. Needless to say, fans were ecstatic to hear he would be reprising his role on Netflix’s hit revival series Fuller House, once again bringing back all the cheesy comedy fans knew and loved from his character. Since he has been around and loved by fans for so long, get to know the talented actor and comedian better with these 10 things not widely known about him:
10. Starting His Career
In the early ’80s, Coulier was still trying to get his career started and eventually met Bob Saget after the two performed at comedy shows together in L.A. The two actually became fast friends well before their Full House days and Saget allowed Coulier to crash on his couch while he looked for work. He landed small roles including voice-over work, but got his break with the show Out of Control where he coined his well-known Full House trademark phrase, “Cut. It. Out.”
After so many years of performing comedy and portraying Uncle Joey, many do not know any other things about the actor, and one of the most interesting things about him is he is also a pilot! He earned his pilot’s license in 1979 and owns his own Beechcraft B35. In an episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now? Coulier revealed he is an “instrument rated” pilot which means he took additional training that allows him to fly in extreme weather conditions.
