‘I was so excited and nervous to interview @bobsaget on the show. I needn’t had been nervous,’ David wrote. 

‘He was charming and generous every time we spoke. He stayed in touch once and a while through socials and made you feel like a friend. 

‘We spoke again late last year. Sometimes stars are so down to Earth, you forget how many people they touched just by saying hi. Bob was one of those. My kids are now watching Fuller House. Thanks for giving us joy Bob. RIP’.     

It was revealed on Sunday that Saget, who went from being a respected stand-up comedian to a successful star of Full House, has died.

Sources close to the comic say he died Sunday at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, and police confirmed his death shortly afterward.

Employees of the hotel found Saget in his room around 4 p.m., and Sheriff’s deputies and the fire department arrived soon after.

Few details are currently available about the circumstances leading up to Saget’s death, though sources say that he was pronounced dead in his hotel room.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office told TMZ that it has ‘no information on cause of death, and detectives have found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.’

Officials added that ‘the Medical Examiner’s Office will make the final call on the cause and manner of death.’

Saget’s family confirmed his death later on Sunday in a statement.

‘We are devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob passed away today,’ they said. ‘He was everything to us and we want you to know how much he loved his fans, performing live and bringing people from all walks of life together with laughter. Though we ask for privacy at this time, we invite you to join us in remembering the love and laughter that Bob brought to the world.’

The comedian’s unexpected death comes amid his cross-country stand-up tour, which kicked off back in September 2021. 

He had recently played a string of dates in Florida, including a show in Orlando.
