Reflecting On Their Friendship

Steve Harvey Dines Out in West Hollywood

On Monday, the TV host, 64, talked about his friendship with his fellow comedian who passed away last weekend at age 65. Harvey revealed on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" that he got an email from Saget just days before his death. The latter asked the "You Got Served" star to join the "Full House" actor on his new podcast.

"The dude that you see on TV, that is not who that was. The father on Full House, now this is a different dude offstage," Harvey told host Jimmy Kimmel.

He continued, "We both were. When we would see each other off stage, we would cuss each other out. You know, he was an interesting guy."

Harvey added, "My staff just told me today, he just emailed me two days ago and they read the email to me this morning and he wanted me to come do this new podcast he had, man. He really respected the moral stances that I take. He was just talking about all the good times we had and they read the email to me. It was a little hard. He was a great dude. Great dude."

Kimmel then discussed Saget's sense of humor and how it was different.

"Bob had the darkest sense of humor of any nice person I ever met. ... Shocking dark, and not just profane, but also twisted and very fun to experience," he said.

Mourning The Loss

Kimmel got very emotional while paying tribute to his dear friend during a pre-taped opening monologue on Monday's episode.

"If you've read anything about Bob online last night, if you saw any of the many thoughts from people who knew him personally, a word that came up a lot was 'the sweetest,'" the late-night talk show host said.

"Bob was the sweetest, he was the sweetest man, and the reason people wrote that is because it's true. It's the best word — if you had to pick one word to describe him, that was it: the sweetest," he noted.
