Bob Saget revealed he recently had COVID-19: ‘It does not feel good’

Bob Saget was cracking jokes about COVID-19 variants — and disclosing his own diagnosis —on a podcast just days before he passed away.

“It’s very popular, it’s doing very well,” The “Full House” icon, who died on Sunday at the age of 65, joked of the Omicron variant during a Jan. 5 interview on the podcast, “A Corporate Time with Tom & Dan.”

“It is not good, it does not feel good,” he continued. “I don’t know if I had Delta or … I might have had a combo. Maybe at one point they [Delta and Omicron] were working together.”

Saget, who didn’t specify when he battled COVID, then compared the virus variants to comedians. “At one point Omicron was opening for Delta but Omicron got so big that Delta’s opening now.”

He also spoke about the experience of performing stand-up for audiences during the pandemic.

“If it’s half-full I go ‘oh that’s disappointing’ then all of a sudden 200 people show up because they decide at the last minute, ‘what the hell, when are we going to see Bob? He might die from COVID, let’s go see him,’” he joked at the time.
