John Stamos pays tribute to Bob Saget, co-star of Full House
Sunday, legend of comedy and Full house star Bog Saget, best known for his role as Danny Tanner on the beloved sitcom, has died aged 65. The news of Saget’s passing stunned not only the comedian’s fans, but his peers in Hollywood as well, and now his Full house costar John Stamos pays tribute to Saget in a social media post.
Sunday, Stamos, who played alongside Saget in Full house as Uncle Jesse, wrote that he was “gutted” by the news of Saget’s passing and noted that he would never have another friend like him.
“I’m broke. I’m drained. I’m in complete and utter shock. I’ll never have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby,” Stamos wrote. Stamos and Saget had both resumed in recent years their Full house roles for the Netflix sequel series, Fuller house.
I’m broken. I’m empty. I am in complete and utter shock. I’ll never have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby.

While Saget is best known for its Full house role, he also hosted America’s Funniest Home Videos between 1989 and 1997. He also appeared in a number of other television series and starred in The WB’s Raising daddy who saw him play another TV dad. This series, which also starred Kat Dennings and Brie Larson, only lasted one season. He was also the voice of the future Ted Mosby in the narration of how I Met Your Mother. Dennings also paid tribute to Saget on Sunday, writing “I just can’t believe it. What a wonderful guy. He always went out of his way to make me comfortable and talked about his children all the time. Such a loss.
Later in his career, Saget returned to his roots as a stand-up comedian, touring the United States with sizzling comedic material that contrasted sharply with his performances as America’s Father. Saget had just finished a show in Jacksonville, Fla. On Saturday night and was scheduled to tour the country from February through June of this year. Saget was pronounced dead at the scene in his room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office tweeted Sunday evening that they found no signs of foul play or drug use in Saget’s hotel room.
“Earlier today, MPs were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes on a call regarding an unconscious man in a hotel room,” law enforcement officials said. “The man was identified as Robert Saget and declared dead on the spot. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case. “
