Shock: “Full House” Star and Comedian Bob Saget, 65, Found Dead in Orlando Hotel Room


One of the nicest and funniest guys I’ve ever known, Bob Saget, has been reported dead in his hotel room in Orlando Saget was 65, and this is really tragic.

Everyone knows him from “Full House” and the Netflix series, “Fuller House.” But was a prolific and gifted comedian who worked gigs all over the country.

He was also involved in the one of the funniest documentaries ever, “The Aristocrats.”

I am so sorry, and this is third obit I’ve written today. (I could have written a fourth,for jazz musician Mtume.)

It seems like it was a heart attack. Just awful.

Keep refreshing…
