John Stamos, Ronny Chieng, And More Stars React To Full House Star And Comedian Bob Saget’s Death At 65
The star of 'Full House' and the host of 'America's Funniest Home Videos' was found dead in Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, on Sunday. He was 65.
Hollywood takes to social media to mourn the passing of Bob Saget, the 65-year-old stand-up comedian and actor best known for starring in the 1990s sitcom Full House and hosting America’s Funniest Home Videos, who died unexpectedly Sunday (Jan 9).
Per Variety, Saget, who also narrated another long-running sitcom How I Met Your Mother, was found unresponsive at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida. He was pronounced dead on the scene, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. No cause of death was revealed, but authorities say there was no sign of foul play or drug use.
Saget’s family, in a statement, said, “We are devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob passed away today. He was everything to us and we want you to know how much he loved his fans, performing live and bringing people from all walks of life together with laughter. Though we ask for privacy at this time, we invite you to join us in remembering the love and laughter that Bob brought to the world.”
Saget is survived by his wife Kelly Rizzo and children Aubrey Saget, Jennifer Belle Saget and Lara Melanie Saget.
Among those paying tribute to Saget are his co-stars on Full House, where he played Danny Tanner, the single father of three from 1987 to 1995 (the show was later revived by Netflix in 2016 as Fuller House). John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse on Full House, tweeted, “I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby.”
