The Weekender: Bob Saget, a pillow fight and five other can’t-miss events

Author Chris Guillebeau, Pillow Fight League and Bob Saget

1. BOB SAGET
Maybe it’s because we never missed an episode of Full House, but we’re torn between loving and hating Bob Saget’s 30-year career as a stand-up comedian. On one hand, the guy’s improbably funny. On the other, Danny Tanner gleefully telling dirty jokes? We’re scarred for life. Jan. 14. $39.50–$49.50. Queen Elizabeth Theatre, 190 Princes Blvd., 416-870-8000, ticketmaster.ca.

2. PILLOW FIGHT LEAGUE #62
Gentlemen, this is not your teenage fantasy come to life. Rather, the ladies of the Pillow Fight League are kind of like the ladies of that other fave team sport, roller derby—they’re the kick ass and take names types. World champ Dinah Mite goes head-to-head with Charley Davidson in the tag-team main event; also featuring Rose Thorne, Eva Dead and Kitten Kaboodle. Jan. 15. $12. The Garrison, 1197 Dundas St. W., gopfl.com.
