Bob Saget was one of America's favorite actors, most well known for his role as Danny Tanner in the hit television sitcom Full House. The country was saddened to learn about his passing in early 2022, but his memory lives on. Here, we will take a look at both the life and career of this beloved actor and comedian. Some of these points may even surprise you and teach you a few unknown facts about the television personality!





Younger Years


Bob Saget was born Robert Lane Saget on May 17th, 1956. He had many successes over the years and worked as a stand-up comedian, actor, and television host. One of his biggest roles, and arguably most famous, was his role as Danny Tanner on the ABC sitcom, Full House. The show ran from 1987 to 1995. Additionally, Bob was the original host of America's Funniest Home Videos from 1989 to 1997.

Bob was born into a Jewish family in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. During his early life and before the fame, he moved to  Norfolk, Virginia, with his family where he briefly attended Lake Taylor High. Due to a lack of family members in the area, he had his bar mitzvah in Philadelphia when he turned 13. His family decided it would be best to return so he could celebrate this special day with his loved ones.


Start Of A Career


Bob's family briefly moved to the Encino neighborhood of Los Angeles, where he met Larry Fine of The Three Stooges, whom he heard various stories from. Some may say this was the first taste of Hollywood for Bob. After this, he and his family moved back to Philadelphia. Saget went through a lot of moving around during his younger years but eventually would find his way in Hollywood as an actor.

Originally, Bob Saget aimed to become a doctor. His father was a supermarket executive, and his mother was a hospital administrator. He did not come from a famous family, so perhaps his parents' careers had an impact on his early career goals. However, while attending Abington Senior High School after moving back to the East Coast, his Honors English teacher, Elaine Zimmerman, saw a lot of creative potential in him and encouraged him to take up a career in film.


Full House


Created by Jeff Franklin for ABC, Full House is an American television sitcom that quickly became a household favorite. Bob Saget had a leading role as Danny Tanner, a widowed father who is raising his three daughters with the help of his brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos) and best friend Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier).

The hit sitcom aired from September 22nd, 1987, to May 23rd, 1995, broadcasting eight seasons and 192 episodes. The series remained consistently in the Nielson Top 30 from 1988 and onward. Today, Full House is still airing reruns. One of the show's producers,  Dennis Rinsler, called the show "The Brady Bunch of the 1990s". Many fans would probably agree!


Bob's Wife Kelly Rizzo


Kelly Rizzo was born in Chicago, Illinois on May 19th, 1979. She married Bob Saget in 2018 and they remained married until his death in 2022. Kelly is known for being a blogger, model, and renowned TV host. She gained the majority of her popularity after founding and hosting Eat, Travel, Rock, a blog that was later made into a web series featured on the website of The Food Channel.

While Kelly is mourning the death of her late husband, she has a lot of support. Bob's friends and family had a positive relationship with Kelly, and appear to be there for her during her difficult time. The photo above reflects the loving relationship the two had.


Television Friends And Real Life Friends


Bob Saget and John Stamos were known for their leading roles in Full House. The pair seemed to have worked together very well, and their friendship on-screen warmed the heart of many viewers. Off-screen, though, it appears that the pair always had a strong relationship. This is one of many photos we have found that features the two actors together.

There is a countless number of photos online featuring Bob Saget and John Stamos together. The two seem to have always posed together for photo ops at big events. Bob was known to be a likable and funny individual, so it is only natural that his on-screen friends translated to real-life friends!


The Scleroderma Research Foundation Benefit


Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen both played the role of Michelle Tanner. The twins would take turns in this role, due to their young age at the time so each could have a break. Here, they are pictured with Bob at The Scleroderma Research Foundation Benefit, an organization that he strongly supported.

The Scleroderma Research Foundation Benefit has a mission statement featured on their website that says, "The mission of the Scleroderma Research Foundation (SRF) is to fund and facilitate the most promising, highest quality research aimed at improved therapies and, ultimately, a cure for scleroderma." Also currently on the homepage of their website, is a tribute to Bob. He was a board member of the foundation and according to the site, "A Dear Friend". 


Using Stand Up For Good


Here, Bob can be seen performing at the Alliance for Children's Rights "Right to Laugh" fundraiser held at the Catalina Club on March 15th, 2010. The Alliance for Children's Rights aims to create a better life for children and is based in Los Angeles, California. The alliance advocates for those in foster care to make sure their rights are being protected. It is a great way to give a voice to those who may be scared to speak up.

Bob Saget was known for having a big heart and making his voice heard. It was very common to see him performing or speaking at such fundraisers and events. Other celebrities were said to be spotted at the Alliance for Children's Rights "Right to Laugh" fundraiser, so it seems that Bob, along with others, helped to get this important alliance a lot of attention. 


A Stand Up Legend


Although much different from his image in Full House, Bob was known for his adult-oriented stand-up comedy. This type of comedy is also known as blue comedy, which is mainly off-color, risqué, indecent, or profane, largely about sex. At times, it can even shock or offend audience members.

While maybe it was a select audience who enjoyed Saget's stand-up style of choice, he had a lot of success with it. Bob went on tour often and always seemed to have a packed audience. He even wrote about his journey into stand-up, called Dirty Daddy, which we will take a look at a bit later on.


Celebrity Friends


Here, Bob Saget can be seen pictured with musician John Mayer. There are many photos of the pair circulating around, so it is safe to say they had a close relationship. In Hollywood, of course, it is common to see celebrities developing relationships, some closer than others. Even though the two had different career paths, they grew to be great friends.

It was reported that John Mayer took Bob's death pretty hard. Upon hearing the sad news, he was very shaken up. According to People.com, Mayer paid for a private plane to transport his body home to California. According to an unnamed source, Bob's friends are there 24/7 for his widow, Kelly Rizzo, and his family.


Rock Concerts


Bob was a music fan and was said to have liked Rock music. Being a celebrity, he naturally got to meet some of his favorite artists. Here, he is pictured with Kiss star, Gene Simmons. That's a pretty big deal!

Bob Saget and Gene Simmons were two among many who arrived at the Hilton Hotel in New York City for the Friars Club Roast of Jack Black. Fellow comedians Amy Schumer and Jeff Ross also attended this large event.


A Devoted Actor


Bob Saget was of course known for his leading role as Danny Tanner on the hit sitcom, Full House. Below, he can be seen with his television family on the show. Shows throughout history have been known to have a lot of cast changes, leaving viewers frustrated. Broadcasting eight seasons and 192 episodes, Bob remained loyal to Full House and kept his role as Danny Tanner throughout the show's entirety.

Full House was a big win for Bob Saget's career. After gaining national recognition from the show, he went on to become a television host, known comedian and took up some other big roles in the entertainment industry. From there, he had a book deal and a DVD deal.


Late Night With Jimmy Fallon


Late Night With Jimmy Fallon is a late-night American talk show hosted by Jimmy Fallon. The show aired from 2009 to 2014 and each episode was one hour. Episodes were aired at 12:35 AM Eastern/11:35 pm Central, on NBC.  David Letterman was the founder of The Late Night franchise, and this particular program originated from NBC Studio 6B. As the show grew in popularity, Jimmy Fallon was selected by NBC to succeed a retiring Jay Leno as host of The Tonight Show, which is still aired today.

It was common for well-known celebrities to appear on the show. Countless big names have appeared, including  Robert De Niro, Justin Timberlake, Nick Carter, and Van Morrison on the pilot episode alone. In the photo above, Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier are seen on the show acting out a skit with Fallon. The show was known for comedy, making it only appropriate that the trio appeared as guests. After all, most would agree they worked great together!


Critical Condition


The same year that Full House aired, so did the movie Critical Condition. The photo below shows a scene from the movie featuring actors Bob Dishy, Richard Pryor, and Bob Saget. The three appear to be worried, so we can only imagine what was being discussed here! Although not everyone knew of Bob Saget yet, the movie was another accomplishment for the actor's career.

The plot of the movie revolves around a man who got caught up in a jewel smuggling scheme. He tries for an insanity plea and is sent to a hospital for evaluation. There, he is confused for a doctor and must take over the hospital just as a major storm is about to hit. On IMDb.com, the movie received a 5.4/10 rating.


"New York Minute" World Premiere 


Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen got their big start on Full House. From there, they went on to land a lot of other big roles. In 2004, they starred in a movie alongside Eugene Levy called New York Minute. The photo below shows the twins at the movie's premiere with Bob Saget. He attended the premiere to support his former co-starts, proving that he was supportive both on and off-screen.

The movie was directed by Dennie Gordon and written by Emily Fox, Adam Cooper, and Bill Collage. Mary-Kate and Ashley play Jane and Roxy Ryan, teenage Long Island twins, who find themselves in a bit of trouble after wandering into Manhattan on a school day. On IMDb.com, the movie received a 5.0/10 rating.


A Role Model


Danny Tanner, played by Bob Saget, was looked up to by a lot of people. His warm-hearted and caring character was an inspiration for many families. Danny Tanner gave hope to a lot of single dads in America who struggled with raising their children alone. While we all know being a single parent can be extremely hard, Bob made it look a little easier on TV.

Of course, Danny Tanner had the support of friends and family to help raise his girls. The moral of the show was that with a little help and a lot of love, even untraditional families can feel like a home. Danny Tanner will always be known as "America's Dad".


Toys For Tots Benefit At The Laugh Factory


Toys for Tots is an organization run by the United States Marine Corps which distributes toys to parents who cannot afford to buy them for their children at Christmas time. Reservist Major Bill Hendricks founded the program in 1947 and began as a Los Angeles charitable effort. Hendricks was inspired to start the organization when his wife, Diane, attempted to donate a homemade Raggedy Ann doll to a needy child but could not find any organization to do so.

The Toys for Tots organization has hosted many benefits over the years, and a few were held at The Laugh Factory. Bob Saget was well known for his charitable contributions and generous donations, and here he can be seen performing at a Toys For Tots benefit. It seems that humor is always appreciated at events such as these, so Bob was the perfect attendee to have!


A Camera Lover


Bob Saget and John Stamos have been pictured together at countless events, premiers, dinners, etc. Usually, it is the job of the paparazzi to capture their moments, so that is why this photo deserves a laugh. Even when the other cameras were rolling, Bob had his own!

Although the two always had a camera on them, Bob decided to take a selfie with his co-worker and friend anyway. It is ironic, yet laughable at the same time. Bob was used to always being on camera and having the paparazzi trying to catch a quick shot of him, so what difference does one extra selfie make?


The Friars Foundation Annual Applause Award Gala Honoring Don Rickles


As we have mentioned, Bob Saget was known for attending charity and honorary events. Here, he can be seen at The Friars Foundation Annual Applause Award Gala Honoring Don Rickles. The foundation was founded in Los Angeles in 1956 and their mission statement from their website reads as follows: "The Friars Charitable Foundation supports charitable efforts that are dedicated to the arts, education, or human services, benefiting the greater Los Angeles community, particularly where its funding can have a significant impact on programs and their participants."

Don Rickles was honored with the foundation's Lifetime Achievement Award in New York City in 2013. 87 years old at the time, Rickles seemed to be in good spirits and was very excited to be a star on the red carpet! Bob can be seen here, along with other celebs, to show support and celebrate with Don.


ABC's The View


The View is a daytime talk show founded by renowned journalist Barbara Walters in 1997. Hosts have included Whoopie Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Sara Haines. There is a "hot topic" segment, where each host offers her take.

Bob Saget appeared on an episode of season 21 of The View, which aired on November 17th, 2017 on ABC. The View featured other big-name guests during the same season which included Dr. Phil, Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, and Tyler Perry. With Bob being invited to appear as a guest on such a large show, it just proves his charisma and talent as an actor.


A Loving Marriage


Although Bob Saget and Kelly Rizzo were not married very long before his death, the two seemed to be happy and in love. With his tragic passing, Rizzo has started to speak out and answer some questions fans have been asking. It was reported that the actress took a few days to herself before speaking out about his death, we can assume to take the time she needed to mourn.

Since then, she has reportedly revealed his last texts and said she will remember him as a man who loved "endlessly". It was very apparent that Bob was an attentive and loving husband, and we can only assume he will live on in his wife's memory.


2014 Pemberton Music Festival


Bob Saget was a music lover and took the time out of his busy work life to enjoy a live performance whenever he could. He is pictured here with Snoop Dogg at the 2014 Pemberton Music Festival. The festival took place from Friday, July 18th, 2014 through Sunday, July 20th, 2014. Performers included Nine Inch Nails, Outkast, Deadmau5, Frank Ocean, Sound Garden, and many more. Over 100 performers took the stage between six locations at the festival. From what we know, it seemed like a pretty big lineup with a lot of fans.

The photo above is significant because it shows Bob enjoying himself off-camera. We sometimes look at celebrities and forget they have a life outside of their big-screen roles. This candid moment shows Bob and Snoop Dogg interacting and having a great time just being able to relax before the big show.


Bob's Portrait Unveiled 


Sardi's Restaurant is located at 234 W 44th St, New York, NY 10036. The walls are lined with portraits of Broadway stars and entertainers. The menu features primarily Italian food. On Friday, January 4th, 2008, Bob Saget's portrait was unveiled at the world famous Sardi's Restaurant.

In 2005, Bob returned to the New York stage following an Off-Broadway debut in Paul Weitz's play Privilege in 2005. Throughout his career, Bob has been honored in many ways and the unveiling of his portrait proved that he is a well-respected actor.


A Relatable Character


Bob Saget's role in Full House was a breath of fresh air to many Americans. Playing a single father on the show, many viewers in the single-parent role were able to relate to him. Danny Tanner, played by Bob Saget, was dealing with his wife's passing and doing the best he could, along with his brother-in-law and friend.

Although the show was a comedy, it had a very real and serious undertone to it. Each day, thousands of parents around the country struggle with the loss of a spouse and may worry about raising their children. Bob Saget shined a light on this issue and gave a lot of single parents hope that everything was going to be ok. With many parents and also children relating to the show, Full House was a positive influence on the country for those who may have felt lost and alone. 


The Roast Of Bob Saget


Comedy Central is known for its "roasts" of celebrities, where they poke fun of them with the help of co-stars and other celebs. During Bob Saget's roast, Roast Master John Stamos headlined a not-so-family-friendly event. The roast featured appearances by Gilbert Gottfried, Jon Lovitz, Norm Macdonald, Cloris Leachman, and more.

Bob seemed to have a good attitude towards his event and was able to share many laughs with those involved. It is safe to say that he had a sense of humor both on and off-screen and that he did not take himself too seriously. After all, that's a little hard to do when you are working in the entertainment industry!


California Adventure Park


In the below photo, Bob can be seen with his daughter Jennifer Belle Saget on March 19th, 2016 at California Adventure Park. As we have said, it is easy to forget that those in the spotlight have a life outside of their work. However, Bob Saget was an attentive father and always made time to plan things with his daughters, as shown here.

In the photo, Bob and his daughter are pictured in front of a Lightning McQueen replica car, a popular photo op at the park. While we don't know for sure if he and his daughter were fans of the movie Cars, it is safe to say they enjoyed it enough to take this photo while on vacation!


Operation Comedy With Bill Burr and Friends


William Frederick Burr, commonly known as Bill Burr, is an American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and podcaster. One of his more recent ventures was the creation of the Netflix animated comedy, F is for Family, in which he voices the main character, Frank.

Another recent doing of Bill Burr was his Operation Comedy Show. The show was held at The Wiltern located in Los Angeles, California. The large venue has also been home to other various concerts, shows, and performances. Here, Bob Saget can be seen performing at Burr's comedy show. Other performers included Burr himself, John Mayer, Jon Stites, and Jeff Ross.


Untraditional Families


As times have modernized, there is no longer a "real" definition of what a family should look like. Full House was one of the first shows to prove this on national television. Until recent years, many would think of a mother, father, and children as your typical family. This is no longer the case, as a family now can be considered anyone who works together under the same roof to maintain a happy household.

Full House pushed the boundaries for what a normal family should look like. Danny Tanner may have been the glue that held the Full House family together, but he couldn't have done it without the help of a few trusted men. Some may argue that the show made the public more comfortable with non-traditional families and has since been more welcoming of families of all types. Whether the producers at the time realized it or not, Full House would have a positive impact for many years to come.


ABC's America's Funniest Home Videos


America's Funniest Home Videos, also known as AFV for short, is an American video clip television series on ABC. The show is based on the Japanese variety show Fun TV with Kato-chan and Ken-chan. The show featured funny home videos sent in by viewers. Common videos featured physical comedy, pets or children, and some staged pranks.

When AFV originally aired, it was a special in 1989, and it later debuted as a regular weekly series in 1990. Bob Saget was the host of the 1989 special and for the first eight seasons of the series incarnation. Since Bob left others have hosted the series. In the photo above, Bob returns as guest host with Tom Bergeron during season 20 to salute the show's funniest moments. Currently, America's Funniest Home Videos' website features a tribute to Bob Saget on their homepage. 


Daughter Lara Saget 


Lara Melanie Saget is one of Bob Saget's daughters and is currently 32 years old. There have been many jokes circulating the internet that she looks exactly like her father, and many have even reached out to her about it. There is definitely no denying that she is his! The two reportedly had a great father-daughter relationship and were very close.

The Tonight Show With Jay Leno


The Tonight Show with Jay Leno was an American late-night talk show hosted by Jay Leno. The show first aired on May 25th, 1992, and ran until May 29th, 2009. It resumed production on March 1st, 2010, until its ending on February 6th, 2014. After Leno's retirement, the show continued on with other well-known hosts, but the new seasons did not generate the ratings that NBC expected.

3rd Annual Rock'n the Puck Celebrity Hockey Game

Bob was a guest on The Morning Program on CBS on January 14th, 1987 in New York City. By now, you have noticed it was very common for Bob to be invited to act as a guest host on many television programs and at many events. He was well-liked professionally and personally, which opened doors to a lot of opportunities for him.


Candace And Bob


Candace Cameron Bure played D.J. Tanner, Danny Tanner's daughter, on the show Full House. She and Bob had a close relationship both on-screen and off. Even years after the show's end, Candance and Bob had been spotted together at multiple events and shows.

Upon hearing of his death, Candace was devastated. She stated that the time she spent with him was not enough, and she looked up to him as well and considered him a close friend. Bob was definitely someone who maintained his relationships with co-stars, even after the show was over.


A Dodgers Fan


Bob Saget can be seen here at a Dodger's game with George Shapiro, an American talent manager, and television producer. Many celebrities have been spotted at Dodgers games, as well as other Los Angeles teams. We often think of celebrities as the elite, and sometimes it is easy to forget they enjoy doing the same things that we do!

This photo is a great example of Bob enjoying his life off-camera. With such a busy schedule, having the chance to go to a sports game with a colleague and friend was something that he very much enjoyed. Based on this photo, it looks like the pair had a great time!


Dirty Daddy


Dirty Daddy: The Chronicles of a Family Man Turned Filthy, was a book written by Bob Saget. For those who were fans of his raunchy stand-up comedy routines, this book was much anticipated. The book shows his darker side while also showcasing his humor. Bob has been quoted saying he believes "there's a time and a place for filth", and his book Dirty Daddy better explains that.

It is no surprise that Bob decided to write his own book about himself and his humor. The opportunity was right, especially for those that craved to know more about the less family-friendly side of him. This 272-page book was published on April 8th, 2014, and can be found in most book stores and also on Amazon.

Bob Saget acted as Danny Tanner yet again on the new show. He plays D.J.'s father and is now a grandfather to her three sons. Just like any other anticipated series, there was a public premiere held which Bob is pictured attending in the photo above.


A Presenter


By now, you have seen many examples of Bob Saget acting as a presenter. Perhaps his most steady and well-known was his time hosting America's Funniest Home Videos. From award shows to television shows, to charitable benefits, Bob dabbled in many things and used his talents to introduce some very big stars.

Bob Saget was known for his big personality and versatile talent. It was only expected that Bob acted as a host on many occasions, as he fit the bill for such events. Viewers were drawn to his charisma and his acting skills ensured he did a great job at anything he stepped up to do.


A Supportive Friend


On November 16, 2009, in Hollywood, California, John Stamos was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Here, he can be seen with Bob Saget, Leron Gubler, Garry Marshall, and Jack Klugman at his ceremony. It is a huge honor for a celebrity to be awarded a star, so of course, Bob was in attendance to support his long-time friend.

Bob was known for maintaining his relationships over the years. It is only fitting that he and John remained close, as they both got their big start from Full House. The ceremony appeared to be a lovely event, and John Stamos was definitely a deserving awardee. 


Bob Speaking At The Ceremony


Here, we can see Bob speaking at the ceremony where John Stamos was presented with his star. Not only did he show up for his long-time friend, but he said some nice words about him, too! Here, the two can be seen in good spirits and enjoying their time at the ceremony together.

From what we knew about him, public speaking appeared to have come naturally to Bob. What better way to showcase his skills than at the Hollywood Walk of Fame honoring one of his best buddies. While we do not have the exact speech Bob read for John that day, we can only imagine his words were heartfelt and genuine. 


Paparazzi


Like most celebrities, Bob was no exception to the paparazzi's work. Here, he can be seen in Los Angeles in a photo most likely taken by a paparazzi trying to get a good shot. While we do not have much context behind this photo, Bob appears to be in good spirits and enjoying himself.

Bob was known for being a nice guy behind the scenes, so it makes sense he was not angry when the paparazzi tried to sneak in a few photos. In Los Angeles, they are hard to avoid if you are in the spotlight. After all, without them, we wouldn't have these great candid photos of our favorite celebs! 


A Family Man


We have mentioned Bob's daughters a few times during this read, as well as his work for the Scleroderma Research Foundation. Here, he is pictured with two of his three daughters at a benefit for the foundation. Family and charity work were two things Bob very much cared about, so it is great to see his daughters coming out with him for support.

Bob Saget was a family man on and off television. In his personal life, he spent a lot of time with his family and was an attentive father. His role as Danny Tanner in Full House was only appropriate, as he was a big family man in real life as well. 


A Sports Fan


As mentioned, Bob Saget was a sports fan. He is shown here with his wife Kelly Rizzo as the pair watches the game between the Los Angeles Kings and the Buffalo Sabres held on March 16th, 2017. This took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. They appear to be immersed in the game, and he, as always, has a smile on his face.

Although Bob was not born in California, he appeared to have become a fan of California teams due to his time living there. Earlier, we saw him attending a Los Angeles Dodgers game. One thing is for sure, Bob made the best of his personal time and did the things that he truly enjoyed.


Bringing The Humor


Bob Saget was perhaps one of the biggest supporters of the Scleroderma Research Foundation. While the foundation deals with some very serious issues, Bob felt that humor would be a lighthearted way to uplift their events. Here, he and Dana Delany attend Scleroderma Research Foundation's Cool Comedy.

The two are laughing together in front of a large crowd, perhaps during a stand-up performance or while hosting. The foundation has stated they are grateful for his significant contributions and the time he has taken to support them. This photo goes to show, Bob used comedy to his advantage to uplift the spirits of everyone he came in contact with.


Thanksgiving Eve Dinner in 2005


The Salvation Army is a protestant Christian church and charitable organization that reports a worldwide membership of over 1.7 million. Members include soldiers, officers, and adherents collectively known as Salvationists. The organization aims to meet the "physical and spiritual needs" of the hungry, destitute, and poor. They accept donations of clothing, food, and money, among many other things. The Salvation Army exists in 132 countries and runs charity shops, homeless shelters, shelters for those impacted by disasters, and brings humanitarian aid to developing countries.

The Salvation Army was yet another charity that Bob Saget supported. During The Salvation Army Southern California's Thanksgiving Eve Dinner, Bob posed with daughter Jenny, Mickey Mouse, and Minnie Mouse. The event was held at the Los Angeles Convention Center on November 23rd, 2005 in Los Angeles, California


Goofing Around


Bob Saget was always a jokester. After all, it is a little difficult to have a career in comedy and be serious all the time! During his roast on Comedy Central, he was seen messing around with actors Chelsea Field and Scott Bakula. Bob was never afraid to be himself even when the paparazzi were around, and in return, fans got to view these great candid photos.

Comedy Central's roasts were always unpredictable. Celebs would arrive not knowing the fate that awaited them and what type of jokes they would become the butt of. To prepare, no one takes themselves too seriously and many have been known to goof around on set and at the pre-show. Bob was definitely no stranger to this!


Good Guy Gone Wrong


An HBO special titled That Ain't Right is a one-hour stand-up comedy routine by Bob Saget. The special first aired in 2007. Here, Bob is seen on August 27th, 2007 at FYE on 6th Avenue and 52nd Street in New York City. He was conducting a DVD signing and a meet and greet for fans. Many waited in line in anticipation of getting to meet him in person and also walking away with a signed DVD.

When Bob could, he would often try to meet his fans and sign merchandise. The crowd may have been a little different at a meet and greet centered around Full House than it was at a signing for his adult stand-up routines, but hey, Bob was appealing to everyone! 


A Pleasure To Be Around


Bob Saget and Tracy Morgan attended the 2017 Garden Of Laughs Comedy Benefit at The Theater at Madison Square Garden. This benefit was held on March 28th, 2017 in New York City. The two are shown hugging and we can assume they were happy to see each other!

Multiple stars have stated Bob Saget was a great person to work with and spend time with. It didn't matter someone's race, gender, or religion, Bob was always welcoming and friendly. The photos we have seen of him interacting with other big-name celebs back this point up.


Forever Remembered 


Bob Saget passed away on January 9th, 2022. His death took a toll on his family, friends, previous co-stars, and anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. Bob was only 65 years old when he passed away, but he accomplished so much during those years and touched the hearts of so many. Full House will forever remain an American classic that gave hope to so many struggling with the loss of a loved one and those who face challenges while trying to raise their families. His other works and contributions shined a light on what it means to be selfless and donate both time and money to good causes.
