The year has already started off on a sombre tone, with two comedy legends passing away this month. Louie Anderson, who passed away on Friday, and Bob Saget, who passed away on the 9th of January, both left indelible marks on the craft.
With the whole world mourning the loss of these icons, it is no surprise that their friends are also still grieving. Gilbert Gottfried went online recently to pay his respects to his friends.
This photo is very sad now. RIP Bob Saget and RIP Louie Anderson. Both good friends that will be missed.
Gottfried posted a picture featuring himself, along with Anderson and Saget. In the caption, Gottfried described the photo as “very sad now,” which is understandable given how both his friends passed away in such a short period of time.
It is unclear who clicked the photograph, but it features Gottfried and Anderson posing for a group selfie, as Saget holds up his phone.
Gottfried’s post undoubtedly resonates with many in the world of comedy, as with fans of Anderson and Saget. Here’s hoping that their work continues to bring joy to many around the globe. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and families of Anderson and Saget, and may they rest in peace.
