According to multiple reports, the ‘Full House’ star called his wife “in the early morning hours of Sunday” following his 2-hour stand-up comedy show in Jacksonville, Florida. As you can imagine, the show finished later in the evening and Saget didn’t return to his hotel room until around 2 am.
Bob Saget Was Pumped About Great Comedy Show, Just Hours Before His Death
The 65-year-old comedian checked in with his wife after the show, and “was so excited coming off a great show and sounded really happy.” As we reported, Saget had arranged for a late check-out, considered he might have wanted to get some sleep after a late night — and he was scheduled to fly home the next day. In other words, nothing indicated to his wife that anything was wrong, in the hours leading up to his death.
Unfortunately, Rizzo didn’t hear from her husband around the time he was supposed to be headed towards the airport, so she called the hotel and had security to a welfare check on the room. As we reported, Saget was found lying in his bed “cold to the touch” with one arm over his chest and on his back. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed they received an emergency call around 4 pm after staff found him unconscious.

They continued, “Kelly and Bob had the same sense of humor. He was so supportive of her company, Eat Travel Rock, and when she did cooking videos, he was often her producer, filming her or doing funny voiceovers.”
