[ # ] RIP Bob Saget
January 9th, 2022 under Comedy Central Roast of Bob Saget, Full House, Obits






Bob Saget was found dead today at the age of 65. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Florida says there are “no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.”

Saget was known as America’s Dad because he played Danny Tanner on Full House. During that decade, he also hosted the G-rated America’s Funniest Videos. While he played wholesome on television, his comedy act was anything but that.

In fact, he got his start as Bosom Buddies’ Warm-up comedian and made his television debut on the sitcom that was produced by the people who did Full House. And the rest is showbiz history.

Besides making us laugh, he spent a lot of time as a philanthropist. His biggest cause was the Scleroderma Research Foundation. His sister, Gay, died from the autoimmune disease at 47. He spent 30 years working to get the word out about it and raising money for research for the debilitating disease that also killed my mother. For that, I am grateful to Saget. And I am grateful I was able to tell him that.

Saget would want to be remembered with laughter, so go ahead do it. Watch him do what he does best, whether it is safe for work or so not safe for work.

His final Instagram post said just that. To read it, then
