John Phillip Stamos is an actor, comedian, producer, musician, and singer. He is a major television celebrity in the U.S. with shows like ‘Full House’ and ‘General Hospital’ under his belt. Initially in his career, he had the quintessential bad boy image, thanks to his boyish charm and sex appeal. However, he worked hard to shed off this image and took up more serious roles. As a teenager, he used to work in his parents’ fast food restaurant and played drums in his school’s marching band. He was just 15 when he told his parents his intention of pursuing a career in acting and music which they fully supported. John got his first break when he was cast as ‘Blackie’ in the soap opera ‘General Hospital.’ He was much loved in this role and this paved the way for more substantial television and movie roles. His portrayal of ‘Jesse Katsopolis’ in the ABC sitcom ‘Full House’ made him an overnight heartthrob and established him as a major television star. Along with acting, he branched out into musical theatre, making his Broadway debut as an emcee in 1995. He is also a skilled musician who can play several instruments like drums, guitar, keyboard, and bass.
