Bob Saget, the comedian and star of TV’s “Full House” has died. He was 65.
Saget, who was best known for his role as widowed father Danny Tanner in ABC’s “Full House” was found dead in his hotel room at the RItz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida on Sunday, police said.
“Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room,” the Orange County Sheriff’s Office tweeted Sunday. “The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.”
Saget, the host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” from 1989 to 1997, had been traveling the country with the “I Don’t Do Negative Tour” and performed a two-hour set in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday.
His final Instagram post on Saturday night following the successful set was filled with hope.
“I loved tonight’s show in Jacksonville,” Saget wrote. “Very appreciative and fun audiences. I had no idea I did a two hour set tonight. I’m back in comedy like I was when I was 26. I guess I’m finding my new voice and loving every moment of it. A’ight, see you in two weeks “
“Goin’ everywhere until I get the special shot. And then probably keep going cause I’m addicted to this,” he added, signing off with “Peace out. ✌️”
On TV, Saget played sweetly his neurotic father on ABC’s “Full House” from 1987 to 1995 opposite Jesse (John Stamos), Joey (Dave Coulier), along with his TV daughters D.J. (Candace Cameron), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and Michelle (played by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen).
Saget returned to play role up in Netflix’s “Fuller House” for five seasons starting in 2016.
As a stand-up comic, Saget told USA TODAY he preferred “immature taboo humor — good immature taboo humor” while promoting his 2014 memoir, “Dirty Daddy: The Chronicles of a Family Man Turned Filthy Comedian.”
