Friends, fans, and fellow comedians continue to remember Bob Saget.
The beloved sitcom star was found dead in his Orlando hotel room on Sunday. The cause of death has not yet been revealed.
The heartbreaking news was met with an outpouring of love and remembrances for the Full House alum. One such tribute came from Pete Davidson, who recruited fellow comedian Dave Sirus to share it since the SNL star doesn’t have social media.
“Just wanted you guys to know that Bob Saget was one of the nicest men on the planet.
When I was younger and several times throughout our friendship he helped me get through some rough mental health stuff. He stayed on the phone with my mom for hours trying to help in anyway [sic] he can – connecting us with doctors and new things we could try. He would check in on me and make sure I was okay.”
Wow, what a touching memory. Many others have highlighted how compassionate the television personality was, but he clearly went above and beyond for Pete.
The 28-year-old concluded:
“I love you Bob it was an honor to know you. Thank you for your kindness and friendship. My condolences to the family.”
The King of Staten Island was just one of many, many comedians who paid their respects to the former America’s Funniest Home Videos host. Over on Twitter, The Aristocrats director Penn Jillette wrote:
“F**k! Saget would have wanted something tweeted that was really funny and in very bad taste. I can’t do that. I’m just so sad. Bob was just great on every level and we will all miss him. #BobSaget”
Dane Cook also tweeted:
“I wanna share the voice texts I’m listening to that we were leaving each other this week. I’m laughing and crying. Im beyond sad. I can not believe this. I loved you Sag. We all did.”

I’m so shocked at @bobsaget’s passing. One of the most kind & thoughtful people I’ve ever come across & he just happened to be one of the funniest on the planet. I will miss you so much Bob. Love you dear friend. I’m so sorry @kellyrizzo. And so sorry to the rest of the family.

Bob was so special to me and I’ll be sad about this day forever. Please be kind like Bob always was and consider donating here. It would mean everything to him: https://t.co/8DU8SNfrBJ pic.twitter.com/6fV77YTysy

Whether you knew him as the wholesome TV dad on Full House or as a filthy stand up comic or anywhere in between, Bob Saget clearly meant so much to so many people. We continue to keep Bob and his family in our thoughts. R.I.P.
