Bob Saget, the actor-comedian known for his role as beloved single dad Danny Tanner on the sitcom Full House and as the wisecracking host of America’s Funniest Home Videos, died while on a stand-up comedy tour. He was 65.
Deputies in Orange County, Florida, were called on Sunday about an “unresponsive man” in a hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando and found Saget dead, according to a sheriff’s statement on Twitter. Detectives found “no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.”
Saget was in Florida as part of his I Don’t Do Negative Comedy Tour. He celebrated online after warm audience receptions to his gigs on Friday in Orlando and on Saturday in the Ponte Vedra Beach resort area.
“I’m back in comedy like I was when I was 26. I guess I’m finding my new voice and loving every moment of it,” he posted on Saturday on Instagram.
