John Stamos says he tried to quit ‘Full House’ at first: ‘I hated that show’

The duo behind Brooklyn’s hip antique furniture store, Lichen, clue us in on what to look for when it comes to vintage seating.

Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse on "Full House" from the late 1980s to the mid-1990s, spoke on last week's episode of the hot wing interview show "Hot Ones," and he acknowledged that at initially, he didn't feel that way about the show and even tried to leave.

He continued, "I hated that show," recalling how it was initially described to him as being comparable to the ill-fated 1980s sitcom "Bosom Buddies," starring Peter Scolari and Tom Hanks, but "with a couple of kids in the background."

Stamos continues, "At the time, I felt like I was "the star" of the show and had a "big shot" attitude in the early stages of production, so when my co-star Jodie Sweetin, who was only a child at the time, outperformed me during the first table read, my ego was a little bruised."

According to Stamos, as Stephanie (Tanner)'s actor Jodie Sweetin reads her lines, "people are dying laughing, no, screaming," and he said, "I couldn't even hear my lines, they were laughing so hard at her, and I'm like slinking down in my seat."

He recalled storming outside to the lobby and yelling, "Get me the f-k off this show!" to his agent.Finally, Stamos clarified Stamos.He made the decision to do it with the assistance of his late co-star Bob Saget and a prod from his agency.

“Try before you buy. See it, smell it, sit on it. And - bargain for it.

ABC broadcast "Full House" from 1987 to 1995. The sitcom follows Saget's character Danny Tanner, a widower who helps Dave Coulier's Joey Gladstone and Stamos's "Uncle Jesse" Katsopolis raise his three daughters. Mary-Kate, Ashley, and Sweetin Olsen played the three Tanner daughters alongside Candace Cameron Bure and Sweetin, who Stamos reportedly confessed he tried to have dismissed from the show at first. Becky, played by Lori Loughlin, was Stamos's on-screen spouse. Additionally, Stamos participated in the Netflix relaunch of the popular show "Fuller House," which started in 2016 and lasted for five seasons.
