ORLANDO — Most of Generation X remembers Bob Saget from the sitcom Full House. It aired from 1987 to 1995. His character, Danny Tanner, was the mild-mannered, single father of three daughters because his wife was killed in a car accident caused by a drunk driver. Mr. Saget hosted America’s Funniest Home Videos, which ran from 1989 to 1997. He was also known for his vulgar standup comedy, particularly his iconic appearance in the Dave Chappelle movie “Half Baked. Sadly, that classic quote will likely be turned into a meme, replacing the word “coke” with “vaccines.”
The Orange County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office tweeted a few hours ago that Mr. Saget was found dead in his room at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grand Lakes Hotel. He was 65 years old. There were no signs of foul play or drug use, according to the Sheriff’s Office. But there are plenty of signs as to the cause of Mr. Saget’s death.
