Try pgfpages in combination with the handout-mode in stead.

\documentclass[handout]{beamer}

% Handout mode
% Remove navigation symbols and save paper
\mode<handout>{%
\setbeamercolor{background canvas}{bg=black!1}
\usepackage{pgfpages}
\pgfpagesuselayout{4 on 1}[a4paper,landscape,border shrink=2mm]
}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\begin{itemize}
\item<1>   Foo
\item<2->  Bar
\item<1,3> Baz
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
