Last month, the comedian and sitcom star Bob Saget died at age 65. He died in his hotel room in Orlando, Florida. The County Sheriff confirmed this news in a statement.
“Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room. The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene,” the Sheriff’s Office wrote. “Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case. #BobSaget.”
Before his death, Saget announced that he was happily “addicted” to performing on the stage and expressed his renewed love for stand-up comedy.

“Okay, I loved tonight’s show @pontevedra_concerthall in Jacksonville. Nice audience. Lots of positivity. Happened last night in Orlando at the Hard Rock Live too. Very appreciative and fun audiences,” Saget captioned the post. “Thanks again to @comediantimwilkins for opening. I had no idea I did a two-hour set tonight.”
“I’m back in comedy like I was when I was 26. I guess I’m finding my new voice and loving every moment of it,” he added. “Goin’ everywhere until I get the special shot. And then probably keep going cause I’m addicted to this s**t. Peace out,” he concluded and added a finger emoji.
Saget’s Final Role Was Being A Chef In A Rap Music Video
The “Full House” actor featured as a chef in Desiigner’s music video, “Bakin,” which featured DJ Whoo and Slushii.
The video opens a clip of Snoop Dogg telling Desiigner, “please believe me when I tell you this. Get Bob on the job.” Saget appears in a white coat as he suddenly dons a chef’s hat while peering into the camera.
Moments after, he’s seen dancing next to other music artists and cooking up a storm with bacon.
“We needed a chef for the video, and I remember thinking, ‘Who the f–k is gonna be the chef who can make it weird?'” DJ Whoo disclosed about the surprise cameo in an interview with Rolling Stone. “Then immediately I thought ‘Bob Saget!’ Nobody on set believed me when I said he’d come until he actually drove up and rang the bell, like this was a ‘Full House’ episode,” he added jokingly of Saget’s first day on the shoot. “When you have rappers pull up for videos, they bring a Maybach, or rent a Lambo, they show off. He shows up and parks his Lexus on the grass and comes in looking like a dad.”
DJ Whoo Kid Called Saget ‘Old-School’
In the same Rolling Stone interview, Whoo Kid elucidated on Saget being old-school. He also added that the comedian kept calling it a “rap video” even though the artist never labeled his music as such.
“He wouldn’t even say ‘twerk,'” he included jocularly of the self-proclaimed “Dirty Daddy.” “He would ask if there was going to be a lot of booty-shaking.
But we didn’t do that for him; I knew he’d got a wife and everything. I told him all I wanted him to do was cook.”
His Family Had An Autopsy Done
A month after the comedian passed away, his family shared in a statement with People that Saget died due to head trauma.
“The authorities have determined that Bob passed from head trauma. They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep. No drugs or alcohol were involved.”
We’ve been incredibly overwhelmed with the incredible outpouring of love from Bob’s fans in the weeks since his death, and the support has been a great comfort to us and for which we are eternally grateful.
Now that we have the conclusions from the authorities’ investigation, we felt it only proper that the fans hear those conclusions directly from us. As we continue to mourn together, we ask everyone to remember the love and laughter that Bob brought to this world and the lessons he taught us all: to be kind to everyone, to let the people you love know you love them, and to face difficult times with hugs and laughter.
Bob Saget Had A Long Fulfilling Career
Saget initially rose to the limelight when cast as Danny Tanner on the hit ABC sitcom, “Full House.” Two years later, he became a household name as the host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”
Saget enjoyed a long and fulfilling career as a comedian who worked in front and behind the camera. In 2005, he took on the role of narrator for the blockbuster series “How I Met Your Mother,” which ran for nine seasons.
The iconic comedian is survived by his wife, Kelly Rizzo, and three daughters; Lara, Aubrey, and Jennifer. The trio is from his previous marriage.
