DENVER - He is probably best known for his role as funny Uncle Joey from the 80s and 90s TV series Full House, and now he is coming to perform in Denver.

Dave Coulier is part of a live comedy show that will be broadcast from Denver at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. The new show is called Clean Guys of Comedy. 9NEWS Anchor Amelia Earheart spoke with Coulier in the studio on Wednesday.

"I came up the ranks of the Tonight Show back when Johnny Carson used to host, and you had to be clean if you wanted to get on America's premier showcase for comedians. That has kind of fallen to the wayside, and I've always done clean material on stage. If you look at two of the biggest comedians on today who are performing, Jim Gaffigan and Bryan Regan, they're clean comedians and they're selling out theaters everywhere so it didn't take a genius to figure out that people just want to laugh without the 'f-bomb' aftertaste," Coulier said.

Denver proved to be the perfect place to host the live show.

"I have played here at The Comedy Works, and they are great audiences. I think this is just a great slice of what America laughs at," Coulier said.

On the topic of his past with Full House, Coulier says the cast keeps in touch and remembers those days well.

"We all still see each other, and we really did become this one, big dysfunctional family off camera as well," Coulier said.

The Clean Guys of Comedy show will kick off on June 6 at Ellie Caulkins Theater, and Coulier says to bring whoever you'd like.

"Anybody can come to the show. You can bring your boss, you can bring your grandparents or you can bring your kids. A laugh is a laugh is a laugh, and we just want to make sure that we're not offending people with filthy language."
