  • Andrea Barber is definently an original.

    I've only seen Andrea Barber as Kimmy Gibbler, though I don't think she's been in much else, I heard she quit acting after Full House, but I loved her as Kimmy.

    I'm sure part of Kimmy's hilarity was the writing, but a lot of it was definently the impeccable acting of Andrea Barber. She portrayed Kimmy with great expressions, vocal and facial, and was such an annoying sweet heart, you couldn't help but absolutely adore her. I adamantly believe she was the most hilarious character on that show. And while I respect, and understand, her decision to quit acting, I would've enjoyed seeing her in other things.moreless
  • A good actress

    Andrea Barber is a very funny,talented actress. She does a great job acting as Kimmy Gibbler on the hit sitcom Full House. She should be on other hit comedy sitcoms like Malcolm in the Middle. Full House was her best show. It is a very good show. I think everybody should watch Full House because it is so hilarious.
