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.

On Saturday, the night before his body was discovered, Saget sent his final tweet following a show at Jacksonville, Florida’s Ponte Vedra Concert Hall.

‘Loved tonight’s show @PV_ConcertHall in Jacksonville. Appreciative audience,’ he wrote. ‘Thanks again to @RealTimWilkins for opening. I had no idea I did a 2 hr set tonight. I’m happily addicted again to this s***. Check BobSaget.com for my dates in 2022.’

The comedy icon began his career as a stand-up in his hometown of Philadelphia, before heading west to Los Angeles. He went on to have a string of small parts in films starting in the late 1970s, but it wasn’t until a decade later that he became a household name.

Although he developed a reputation among his fellow stand-up comedians for his profane comedy sets, Saget paradoxically had his greatest success with the heartwarming sitcom Full House.

He starred on the ABC series as Danny Tanner from 1987 through 1995, and then led the Netflix sequel series Fuller House for five seasons from 2016 to 2020.

In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper from July 2021, Saget revealed that he never expected to lean into cleaner comedy shows like Full House.

‘Full House was an accident,’ he said. ‘I got fired on CBS and was asked to be in Full House.’

Saget played a widowed sports anchor who moves in with his late wife’s brother Jesse (John Stamos) and his childhood friend Joey (Dave Coulier) as they help him raise his three daughters, played by Candace Cameron, Jodie Sweetin and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who split the role of Michelle Tanner.

Saget’s Full House costar John Stamos wrote that he was ‘broken’ and ‘gutted’ after hearing the news.

‘I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby,’ he lamented on Twitter.

‘My heart is broken,’ added Coulier, who played a comedian on Full House. ‘I love you, Bob. Your forever brother, Dave.’

Candace Cameron Bure, who played the actor’s daughter D.J. Tanner on Full house, was left speechless after learning of his death.

‘I don’t know what to say [broken-hearted emoji]. I have no words,’ she tweeted. ‘Bob was one of the best human beings I’ve ever known in my life. I loved him so much.’

The comedian played up his family-friendly bona fides by concurrently starring on America’s Funniest Home Videos from 1989 through 1997.

He hosted the series, which collected humorous home videos sent in by fans, and also provided voiceovers for the clips to ramp up the comedy.

Although he didn’t appear in front of the camera, Saget’s recognizable voice narrated another ABC sitcom, How I Met Your Mother, in which he played an older version of Ted Mosby (played on-screen by Josh Radnor).

The actor and comedian poked fun at his image with a recurring role on HBO’s Entourage, and he also led the single-season WB sitcom Raising Dad, which featured rising stars Kat Dennings and Brie Larson with Sopranos fixture Jerry Adler.

Dennings expressed her sorrow at news of her former costars death on Sunday.

‘Oh god. Bob Saget!!! The loveliest man. I was his TV daughter for one season and he was always so kind and protective. So so sorry for his family,’ she tweeted.

Saget wasn’t afraid to get a bit silly, and one of his recent appearances was as a disguised figure on The Masked Singer.

He focused more on his preferred brand of comedy in recent years with his podcast Bob Saget’s Here For You, which he began recording in 2020.

Other small but impactful roles include an uncredited part as a cocaine addict in Dave Chappelle’s 1998 stoner comedy Half Baked, and he was one of the many comedians featured in the documentary The Aristocrats, about the infamous foul comedy routine of the title.

When he wasn’t on stage or in front of the camera, Saget also tried his hand at directing.

He helmed the Norm Macdonald–starring comedy Dirty Work, which was reviled by critics but later reevaluated as a cult classic, and he provided voices for and directed the straight-to-video parody film Farce Of The Penguins.

The star is survived by his wife Kelly Rizzo, whom he married in 2018, and his three children β€” Aubrey, 34; Lara, 32; and Jennifer, 29 β€” all of whom he shared with his first wife Sherri Kramer, whom he was married to from 1982 to 1997.

Shortly before his death, Saget mused about the nature of the afterlife while paying tribute to Betty White after she died just days away from her 100th birthday.

‘I don’t know what happens when we die, but if Betty says you get to be with the love of your life, then I happily defer to Betty on this,’ he wrote, noting the actress’ undying love for her late husband Allen Ludden, who died in 1981.

Saget managed to be an unending source of humor for his fans despite several family tragedies earlier in life.

His sister Andrea died of a brain aneurysm in 1985, and his other sister Gay died from the autoimmune disease scleroderma in 1994.

In a 2019 interview with NIH Medline Plus Magazine, Saget revealed he had been working with the Scleroderma Research Foundation even prior to his sister’s diagnosis.

Following news of Saget’s death, tributes began flowing in from his famous friends and admirers, most of whom noted Saget’s warmth and kindness.

Although SNL star Pete Davidson doesn’t have his own social media accounts, he had a friend share a statement online in which he revealed that Saget had had played an essential role in helping him with mental health issues.

‘Bob Saget was one of the nicest men on the planet,’ he began.

‘When I was younger and several times throughout our friendship he helped me get through some rough mental health stuff. He stayed on the phone with my mom for hours trying to help in anyway he can β€” connecting us with doctors and new things we can try,’ he continued. ‘He would check in on me and make sure I was okay.

‘I love you Bob it was an honor to know you. Thank you for your kindness and friendship. My condolences to the family.’

He bonded with News4JAX anchor Bruce Hamilton, who he knew from Temple University, telling Hamilton, ‘I just remember you, we went to Temple.’

Saget got emotional when he was asked about Lew Klein, the late American Bandstand producer and Temple University professor who died at the age of 91 in June of 2019.

‘You’re gonna make me cry, he was like a dad to me,’ Saget said of Klein, noting that he helped him break into show business by getting him an internship on The Mike Douglas Show.

‘That was my first indoctrination into show business, I was 19,’ Saget said, hailing Klein for his care for students in an educational career that spanned more than six decades.

‘Lew Klein cared so much about students, I’ve had a couple of those teachers,’ Saget said. ‘When you get a teacher like that in your life, it’s a real gift, anybody watching who knows what I’m saying, both of my sisters were teachers and there’s nothing like it if you’re a good teacher and he literally helped me, and he would talk with me and then we lost him not too long ago, which is very sad.’

In the interview, Saget said he was enthusiastic about his forthcoming trip to the Sunshine State, where he had great memories.

‘I’m leaving tomorrow to be there so I can be, I’m going to Orlando and then I’m coming right to Jacksonville, I think it’s my third time in Jacksonville in about a year,’ Saget said. ‘We comedians have to go where comedy is loud and I’ve had great times in Florida, and I’m going back, it’s really a nice theater too, it’s small.’

Saget told Hamilton that his style of comedy had evolved in recent years, as he wasn’t ‘as blue as [he] used to be’ onstage.

‘I really love doing standup now more than I ever have, and I don’t talk politics, I don’t talk religion, I just want to make people laugh and I don’t want dissension in the room,’ he said. ‘I just want to make people have a good time and have a good night out, I’m getting ready to do a new special so we got to go on the road.’

Saget said his comedic style was ‘really kind of a different version’ of himself, adding ‘I just love it.’

Saget told Hamilton about how he continued working in his comedy career throughout the pandemic, which included his podcast Bob Saget’s Here For You , which he began in the early days of the pandemic in April of 2020.

He said that he loved doing his podcast and that he had welcomed ‘amazing guests’ for ‘great conversations’ on the platform.

‘I just love to do it,’ he said. ‘Everywhere where you are, you’re making people feel better, and that’s my job, and we get into the thick of it sometimes but it also depends if I have a comedian on … it’s really a fun thing to do.’

Saget told Hamilton his first live comedy gig since the shutdown came as part of Dave Chappelle’s series in Yellow Springs, Ohio in the summer of 2020.

‘Once I was able to get out there safely, I did it,’ he said. ‘There’s nothing like it, I’ve been doing it for over 40 years I did it when we met that was doing stand up.’

On his Twitter page Wednesday, Hamilton wrote of the interview: ‘Loved talking to Bob and talking about our days at Temple U . Not just a typical interview for me. Great personal chat.’

In what would be his final social media post, Saget said that he had performed a two-hour set in in Jacksonville Saturday to an ‘appreciative audience.’
