These times have been rather sad for the entertainment industry, particularly in the comedy kingdom, due to the death of the famous Bob Saget.
Nikki Glaser, a dear friend of Saget and an American stand-up comedian, took to Instagram two days ago to upload a song in honor of the “Fuller House” star.
In the caption, she described him as the world’s best friend and tagged several handles in appreciation for helping with the song. This included her friend, @mattpondpa, who wrote the song. It Partly read:
“It was just for fun and to see if I could do it and I didn’t intend to release anything because I’m so new to this, but then Monday happened and this song materialized and I’m proud of it.”
Nikki Glaser Says Bob Saget Was The King Of Fatherhood
The actress revealed that she initially didn’t plan on putting the song out there since she’s a newbie in that aspect, but she’s proud to have released it.
The song is currently on Spotify, and its link is on her Instagram bio. Glaser’s post got over 200,000 likes and 287 comments, mostly admiring ones.
A few commenters talked about how lovely her voice was, while some expressed how touching the song was and mourned her loss with her.
Saget, the renowned American stand-up comedian, was sadly taken from this world earlier this month, precisely January 9. He was 65 years old. In a tribute song to the star, Glaser sang these words:
“The King of Fatherhood. Someone to trust. When I was down. You brought me up.”
The TV host also spoke about her last moments with Saget, which was shared as a write-up with Los Angeles Times.
Glaser wrote, Saget invited her to dinner with his relatives after her stand-up show in Milwaukee. She planned on turning him down, but he convinced her to do otherwise.
According to the 37-year-old, Saget was very accommodating and free-spirited, even to those she brought to the dinner, despite not knowing them.

The “How I Met Your Mother” Narrator Seems Low-Key Before Death
The Blast previously shared that Saget was found dead in a room in Ritz-Carlton in Orlando. He died several hours after his stand-up performance in Ponte Vedra.
At the time, the 65-year-old had a comedy tour in Jacksonville, Florida. He was later found not responsive in his hotel room.
Saget wasn’t identified immediately when he was found. Also, there were no indications that the comedian was involved in drugs or any illegal activity.
No one knew how he died, including his family, but his wife Kelly Rizzo recounted how heartbreaking her husband’s death was.
Before his death, Saget came in contact with a few people, including the staff of the Ritz-Carlton. One of the staff members took the liberty to describe how Saget appeared before he passed.
The staff described the TV host as low-key and unassuming. He included that Saget was pretty enthusiastic about taking photos with fans in the hotel lobby.
Several people knew who he was, but he didn’t appear bothered about that. He was very friendly without being a terrible guest like other celebrities who have lodged previously in the hotel.

The “Full House” Star Laid To Rest In A Private Service
Last Friday, a private ceremony was held for Saget’s burial, which close friends and family graced. After the ceremony, Jeff Franklin, “Full House,” creator, hosted a reception.
The Blast‘s report revealed that the funeral was held in Los Angeles at Mt. Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery.
Given Saget’s Jewish heritage, it was a relatively small service due to the immediacy of how the burial had to happen. However, it has been said that a larger one would occur later in the future.
Several “Full House” co-stars, such as John Stamos, Ashley Olsen, Dave Coulier, and Mary Kate, were present at the event.
Stamos described the day as the hardest one of his life and prayed for God to give him serenity, courage, and wisdom.
The co-star wasn’t ready to say his goodbyes as he still imagined his friend humoring the world out there.
He also talked about how alive Saget seemed during his final hours. In a call to Rizzo, his wife, the late comedian expressed his love to her, saying he missed his kids, family, and friends.
