Bob Saget, the actor-comedian best known for his roles on “Full House” as loving single dad Danny Tanner and as the wisecracking host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” has died, according to Florida officials. He’d just turned 65.

According to a sheriff’s statement on Twitter, deputies in Orange County, Florida, were called Sunday about an “unresponsive man” in a hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando and discovered Saget dead. “There were no signs of foul play or drug use in this case,” according to detectives.

Saget was on his “I Don’t Do Negative Comedy Tour” in Florida. He rejoiced online after receiving positive feedback from audiences at his concerts in Orlando on Friday and in the Ponte Vedra Beach resort area on Saturday.

“I’m back in comedy like I used to be when I was 26.” I guess I’m discovering my new voice and enjoying every minute of it. “On Saturday, he shared a photo on Instagram.

Saget was praised for his wit and his kindness by his fellow comedians and friends.
Saget’s publicist did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

Saget’s notoriously filthy sense of humor was revealed as a stand-up comedian in a much-talked-about cameo in the 2005 documentary “The Aristocrats,” in which 100 comedians riffed on the world’s dirtiest joke.

Saget, the longtime host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” played a squeaky clean widower and father to three young girls on “Full House,” the ABC sitcom that launched the careers of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in 1987.

The show’s popularity did not deter critics, who labeled it cheesy and unreal. Saget, who was as amiable and witty in an interview as he was on TV screens, took the jabs in stride.

He was praised as the producer-director of the 1996 television film “For Hope,” partially based on his late sister Gay’s fight with the tissue disease scleroderma, and he lobbied for more federal funding for research.

In a January 2020 post, he remembered his sister, noting that she died at 47 and would have been 73 that month.
Saget and his first wife, Sherri Kramer, had Aubrey, Lara, and Jennifer. They divorced in 1997. in 2018, he married Kelly Rizzo.
