Perez Hilton is moving into Full House -- off-Broadway, that is.

The celebrity blogger will star as patriarch Danny Tanner in Full House! The Musical!, a new onstage musical that spoofs the beloved ABC sitcom. The production begins performances on Sept. 7 at Theater 80 on St. Mark's Place in New York City, after a Toronto run.

'Full House! The Musical!' Parody Announced for Off-Broadway

Hilton announced his upcoming gig to Howard Stern on Tuesday. “I am gonna be playing Bob Saget, basically, in a musical," he said, noting that he's been working with a vocal coach for years.

The new parody production hails from the same creators as the Saved by the Bell-based Bayside! The Musical! as well as Showgirls! The Musical!. It is described to follow how Danny "loses his super power of solving any problem with his sensible Dad Speeches (complete with soft piano accompaniment). Follow Danny's wacky and hilarious descent into madness as he slowly turns from wholesome Danny Tanner to foul-mouthed and dark Bob Saget. Will he get his Dad Speech power back in time to save his family? Probably not!"
