Comedian and actor Bob Saget, who starred as Danny Tanner in the hit ABC sitcom ‘Full House’ for almost 10 years, was found dead around 4PM ET on Sunday in a hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, according to a TMZ report.
Saget had been on a comedy tour, making appearances at various venues throughout the state of Florida, including in Orlando. The tour began in September and was set to run through May.
On Saturday night, Saget had a show in Jacksonville at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. He sent his final tweet early Sunday morning, thanking the audience.
Loved tonight’s show @PV_ConcertHall in Jacksonville. Appreciative audience. Thanks again to @RealTimWilkins for opening. I had no idea I did a 2 hr set tonight. I’m happily addicted again to this shit. Check https://t.co/nqJyTiiezU for my dates in 2022. pic.twitter.com/pEgFuXxLd3
