    Whoa!  Not sure I would’ve predicted this one.  That’s really too bad.  He was only 65.

    That's awful. My wife got to meet him a few different times and he was always a class act.

    Bob was not on my Bingo Card for 2022.  That seemed to have come out of the blue.

  • RIP. I have heard his standup is pretty dirty, which surprises me, as I only ever knew him from Full House (I know; shame on me).

    He played himself on the HBO series Entourage where he was also pretty dirty, but hilarious.

    Sorry to hear that. I've only been to CA twice - both times on a company nickel. The first time was a blast and I saw Saget in person as a newbie comic at one of those hot comedy stores way back in the late '70's. After that I always tried to watch him on his future shows.

    I haven't searched the interwebs about this story,  but is there speculation?   I FEEL like 90 percent of comedian hotel deaths are suicide.

    They are saying he had COVID days before and they are investigating it now. He died in his sleep so not a suicide.

    No foul play from anything that I've read.

    Weird.  He seemed like a healthy, well adjusted guy.  I grew up watching him on Full House during the TGIF lineup. Later in life I saw a video of his standup routine.  My perception of him changed greatly.  🤣

    Could be a brain aneurysm. It’s a shame anyway.

    I would hit Agree.  Seems wrong to "like" brain aneurysm.

    Since 90% of a comedian's life takes place in a hotel room, does this mean anything?

    Its like the statistics about car accidents. . . <PSAVOICE> You are 80% more likely to be in a car accident within 15 miles of your home. </PSAVOICE>

    Yeah . . . 80% of my driving is . . .

    The court of public opinion is pretty tough. When I die I want every conversation about my legacy to start with    "The cause was not known, but the sheriff’s office said there were no signs of foul play or drug use."

    News saying he was found with one arm over his chest, suggesting he suffered from a heart attack. Let's wait for the report, could take weeks.

    I guess my point is who cares, and what business is it of ours?  He seemed like a great guy.

    💯 Agree.  Just like Robin Williams.  The mean ones live longer it seems.

    Considering the downward spiral my grandmother took with the other type of strokes from 1967 to 1973, I could "like" a brain aneurysm . At least it seems to be quick and he might not even had known that anything was happening.

    I care more for his family ... he's gone.  But I think some people in the world need closure ... not sure why, ask a psychologist. LOL.

    Very sad. He was a funny dude.
