Bob Saget, the actor who played Danny Tanner on the hit 90’s sitcom Full House, has passed away. Bob reprised his role on its Netflix sequel Fuller House. The iconic comedian was a fan favorite, many of whom are expressing their shock and sadness.

Bob Saget passed away at 65-years-old. Multiple sources have confirmed this tragic news, including Orange County Sherriff’s Office. On January 10, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room.

Tragically, the man identified was as Robert Saget. Bob was pronounced deceased on scene by the law enforcement officials. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.

Bob had been touring the country lately, hitting a lot of destinations throughout the state of Florida, including in Orlando. The tour started in September and was supposed to take him through May. The legendary comedian and television father had his last show on Saturday night.

Saget sent his final tweet following his show at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in Jacksonville, Florida. He was known for his off-color humor, often shocking for those who only knew him from Full House. In 2020, Saget launched a podcast titled Bob Saget’s Here For You with Studio71. This is a very sad day and our thoughts are with Bob Saget’s family and friends at this time.

RIP Bob Saget
