Bob Saget comedy tour was scheduled to come through OKC in February
Sadly, the "Full House" the Bricktown Comedy Club planned next month for Bob Saget's stand-up performances will be empty.
The beloved actor and comedian, best known for playing the widowed patriarch Danny Tanner on the hit 1987-1995 sitcom "Full House," was found unresponsive in his hotel room at The Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, Sunday afternoon. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
He was 65.
Saget, who also cracked wise as the host of "America's Funniest Home Videos" from 1989 to 1997, had been trekking across the country with his "I Don't Do Negative" stand-up comedy tour. He performed a two-hour set in Jacksonville, Florida, on Saturday.
He was scheduled to bring his tour to Oklahoma City in early February for shows at the Bricktown Comedy Club. The club's management posted on Facebook Sunday that ticketholders for his upcoming OKC shows would receive automatic refunds. For more information, go to https://www.bricktowncomedy.com.
"We are very sad and sorry to hear about the passing of Bob Saget. He is a comedy icon, and we are incredibly lucky to have hosted him in OKC," the Bricktown Comedy Club team posted. "Hug your loved ones a little tighter tonight, and don’t ever forget to laugh."
The Orange County Sheriff's Office told USA TODAY in a statement that detectives have found "no signs of foul play or drug use in this case." The Medical Examiner’s Office will ultimately determine the cause of death.
Although he was known for playing a warm, witty dad on television — he reprised the role of Danny Tanner in the Netflix spinoff "Fuller House" from 2016 to 2020 and narrated the sitcom "How I Met Your Mother" from 2005-2014 — Saget didn't just do family-friendly comedy.
Not only did he make an indelible appearance in the 2005 documentary "The Aristocrats," in which 100 comics riffed on the world’s dirtiest joke, but Saget also titled his 2014 memoir, "Dirty Daddy: The Chronicles of a Family Man Turned Filthy Comedian." Saget told USA TODAY an interview to promote his book that he favored "immature taboo humor – good immature taboo humor" as a stand-up comedian.
Services for Saget have not yet been announced.
