The actor and comedian had been touring the country recently, coming to multiple locations in Florida.

He was doing a show in Jacksonville Saturday night, staying until early Sunday morning. 

“Loved tonight’s show @PV_ConcertHall in Jacksonville. Appreciative audience. Thanks again to @RealTimWilkins for opening,” tweeted Saget around 3 in the morning on Sunday.

“I had no idea I did a 2 hr set tonight. I’m happily addicted again to this s***. Check http://BobSaget.com for my dates in 2022.”

Saget was best known for his role as Danny Tanner, the patriarch of the Tanner family in Full House. He played the role opposite John Stamos and Dave Coulier.

His TV daughters were played bare Candace Cameron, Jodie Sweetin and twin Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen playing little Michelle Tanner.

Many remember Saget as the family-friendly father of three that he portrayed onscreen. In actuality, he was known in the comedy world for being incredibly raunchy.

His memorable Comedy Central roast saw him take shots at other iconic comics such as Norm Macdonald, Gilbert Gottfried, Jon Lovitz, Jeff Ross and others.

Saget was also the host of America’s Funniest Home Videos from 1989 to 1997, which ran concurrently with his time on Full House.

He reprised the iconic role for the Netflix reboot, Fuller House, which ended in 2020 after running for four years.

His other roles included a recurring role on Entourage, where he played a fictionalized version of himself. He was also the narrator in How I Met Your Mother and the star of Raising Dad.

He started a podcast series called Bob Saget’s Here For You and was a featured celebrity guest on the Masked Singer.

CO-STARS SPEAK OUT

Some of Saget’s Full House co-stars released statements about their TV patriarch’s death.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen said they were “deeply saddened” about Saget’s passing.

“Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man. We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us as gracefully as he always has,” the siblings said.

“We are thinking of his daughters, wife and family and are sending our condolences.”

John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse, tweeted: “I am broken. I am gutted.  I am in complete and utter shock.  I will never ever have another friend like him.  I love you so much, Bobby.”

“I don’t know what to say,” wrote Candace Cameron Bure, who played DJ Tanner. “I have no words. Bob was one of the best human beings I’ve ever known in my life. I loved him so much.”

‘AMERICA’S DAD’

Multiple tributes by celebrities and fans were posted online almost immediately after the news of Saget’s death.

Comedian Nikki Glaser wrote: “I’ll miss Bob Saget so much. He was as kind as he was funny.”

Star Trek actor, George Takei, said he was “deeply saddened” to learn of Saget’s “untimely” passing.

“Beloved by millions as America’s Dad, he was a regular presence in our living rooms, bringing to us the funniest videos and countless belly laughs. Gone too soon, like so many of the brightest souls.”

Bobby Lee called Saget “one of the nicest guys in this business.”

“My heart is broken,” he added.
