Cut it out!

I Met Uncle Joey And It Was Awesome

I remember coming home from school around three after a long day facing the stress that comes with being a third grader, grabbing a granola bar out of the cabinet, and turning on Full House reruns. 10 years later I found myself coming back from an actually challenging day of high school still enjoying the show (even though I had, by then, owned all 10 seasons on DVD and seen each episode at least 5 times). Well, as a college I still found myself still unconditionally loving the show, AND blessed with the gift of a reunion season! Fuller House warmed our hearts and allowed us to reminisce the good old days. And then, because it’s unreasonable to expect me not to binge watch it in one day, I had finished that. But later on, something magical happened. My college email dinged and with that ding came the news informing me and the rest of the Seton Hall campus that David Coulier would perform on campus this spring, March 31st. Unfamiliar with the name?

Yep! Uncle Joey was coming to Seton Hal! And you better believe I got myself a ticket! We all remember good ole' Uncle Joey, Full House fan's favorite hockey loving, joke telling, live in friend who filled the Tanner household with love, happiness, and of course laughter. Well he came to Seton Hall. And it. was. awesome.

So here's what happened!

He walks out in a custom made Coulier hockey jersey and the entire room erupts in applause. How could we not? Uncle Joey was standing on the stage.

But he wasn't Uncle Joey, he was "a stand up comedian completely independent from the show," as my boyfriend put it. I knew that though, the crowd did too. But the excitement was palpable.

And Coulier addressed that misconception. He ran through his bits but not before telling the story of his trip to New Jersey and his run in with a fan at the airport. Apparently it was very common for Coulier to be approached in public and asked to say his famous line from the show "cut.it.out".

The experience to see this man perform gave me all of the feels. A lucky handful of students were given the ability to take a break from the stress of college to enjoy the comedy of the man they affectionately still refer to as Uncle Joey. In the hour that he was on stage, the smile never left my face.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
