Bob Saget, Comedian and ‘Full House’ Star, Passes Away at 65

We have some extremely sad and shocking news to report this evening. Comedian/actor Bob Saget has passed away at the age of 65.

According to the police department, deputies responded to a call about a man who was found unresponsive at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lake hotel. Saget was pronounced dead on the scene, and there was no sign of drug use or foul play.

No exact cause of death has been released.

Born May 17, 1956, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Saget became a household name when he landed the role as Danny Tanner on ABC family sitcom “Full House” in 1987. For almost 200 episodes, Saget portrayed the model for the perfect father figure.

He reprised the role when the cast returned for the “Fuller House” reboot in 2016 and played the character again for four more years.

Saget was also known for his work as a stand-up comedian. Shortly after joining “Full House,” he became the host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” and remained on the show until 2019.

This is a developing story and all the news we know for now. Our hearts and prayers go out to Bob Saget’s family and friends.
