  • Full House star Bob Saget tragically passed away at the age of 65 years old.
  • Comedians and actors have taken to social media to pay their respects to Saget.
  • At this time, his cause of death is unknown.

On Sunday night, news broke that famed comedian and Full House patriarch Bob Saget had passed away at the age of 65-years-old. Saget, who had just performed in Jacksonville on Saturday, was found dead at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Orlando, Florida, around 4 p.m. EST on Sunday, January 9. At this time, the cause of his death is unknown.

“We have no information on cause of death, and detectives have found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case. The Medical Examiner’s Office will make the final call on the cause and manner of death,” the Orange County Sheriff’s Office told TMZ.

Following the report of Saget’s untimely passing, fellow comedians and actors took to Twitter to pay their respects to the former America’s Funniest Home Videos host, who was clearly beloved within the stand-up community due to his kindness: “One of the funniest and sweetest people I have ever known,” said Billy Crystal.

Saget, who was born in Philadelphia in 1956, became a nationally-recognized name after he was cast as family patriarch Danny Tanner on the hit ABC sitcom Full House, which originally ran from 1987 to 1995. In addition to his role on Full House, Saget hosted ABC’s clip show America’s Funniest Home Videos from 1989 to 1997. During the 2000s, in addition to returning to stand-up comedy, Saget served as the voice of the future Ted Mosby on the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother from 2005 to 2014.

Our thoughts are with Mr. Saget’s friends, family, and loved ones during this difficult time. May he rest in peace.
