Iconic actor and comic Bob Saget was found dead at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida. Saget just finished a show a few hours before his death. 

Sources stated that his room was well put together, and there was no sign of distress. In fact, his bags were neatly packed by the door when he was found. The security team member tried to perform CPR after calling 911, but unfortunately, he was pronounced dead at the scene. 

“Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room,” the orange county sheriff’s office tweeted.

The sheriff’s office released a report that stated Saget was found lying face up in his bed with his left arm across his chest and his right arm resting on the bed. 

Saget was in Florida as part of his “I Don’t Do Negative Comedy Tour,” according to his Twitter feed.


 Fellow comedians and friends praised Saget, not only for his wit but also his kindness.

“I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him,” wrote John Stamos, who co-starred with Saget on “Full House. “I love you so much, Bobby.”


 Norman Lear, who called Saget a close friend, wrote the comedian “was as lovely a human as he was funny. And to my mind, he was hilarious.”

Saget made his way to fame status during the 1990s as the father Danny Tanner on Full House and the host of America’s Funniest Home Videos. He was also the narrator on the show How I Met Your Mother from 2005 to 2014 and reprised the Danny Tanner role on the Netflix reboot Fuller House between 2016 and 2020. Saget served as a direct for film, Dirty Work from 1998.

Saget was also a well-respected stand-up comedian. In his memoir, Saget included what could have been a thoughtful farewell. 


“The goal of living a full life is so, at its end, you’ll have learned some things along the journey,” he wrote. “I’m nowhere near the end yet, but I’ve already had some incredible experiences. I’ve met and worked with some amazing people, I’ve lived, I’ve loved, I’ve cried … and through it all, I did it my way.”
