"I see the distinction. And you described MacDonald perfectly. I always felt like he was contemptuous of his audience, which included me. As you say, probably just a persona. He was probably more personable among other comedians, and they apparently…"
"I'd say Norm MacDonald was very popular with other comedians moreso than the general public -- his public persona was being a prickly, arrogant jerk -- but there is genuine public affection for Bob Saget and his persona as the genial goofy dad…"
"Full House started when I was still in junior high, so while I didn't watch it every week, I did watch it for the first 2-3 seasons. I was a huge consumer of stand-up on cable, so I was already familiar with Bob Saget. I remembered John Stamos…"
