Bob Saget, star of the classic ABC sitcom “Full House” and host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” from 1989 through 1997, has passed away in Orlando at the age of 65.
The famed actor and stand-up comedian was found this afternoon in his Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Grande Lakes hotel room in Orlando, according to TMZ. Saget was in the midst of a national tour, having just kicked off his “I Don’t Do Negative” tour on Friday at the Hard Rock Hotel in Orlando.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene, declaring that there was no signs of foul play or drug use at the scene. No cause of death has been determined as of yet.
Although Saget is remembered these days for his family man role on “Full House”, he had a reputation for being quite a raunchy comedian during his sets. Saget also appeared as a recurring character on “Entourage”, the voice of future Ted Mosby on “How I Met Your Mother”, and starred in “Raising Dad”, among many other credits.
