David Alan "Dave" Coulier (born September 21, 1959) is an American actor, voice actor, stand-up comedian, impressionist and television host, and television host. He played the role of Joey Gladstone on Full House.
Coulier is the voice-over in the syndicated repeats, by closing each episode with "Full House is produced by Jeff Franklin Productions, with Miller-Boyett Productions, in association with Lorimar Television/Warner Bros. Television, and is distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution." Also, on certain syndicated repeats, he can be heard in the bumper saying "Full House will be right back."
In the early 1990s, he was the host of America's Funniest People, from the same creator and producers of America's Funniest Home Videos (which was hosted by his co-star Bob Saget). While similar to AFHV in that the clips were submitted via video, the show focused more on the talent(s) of the submitter(s) than the videos themselves; in addition, the votes tallied to determine the finalists ($10,000 for 1st, $3,000 for 2nd, and $2,000 for 3rd) were done via telephone votes instead of using audience votes; plus there was no $100,000 grand prize special for the season finales like its sister show.
He was married for two years to Jayne Modean, who played Adult Michelle in "Those Better Not Be the Days". They have one son, named Luc. Having divorced, he started dating Alanis Morissette, but they broke up shortly before she recorded her album, Jagged Little Pill. He has said that she wrote the song "You Oughta Know" about him – although she has not confirmed that.
On July 2, 2014, he married his long-time girlfriend Melissa Bring.
