Bob captioned the photo, “Loved tonight’s show @PV_ConcertHall in Jacksonville. Appreciative audience. Thanks again to @RealTimWilkins for opening. I had no idea I did a 2 hr set tonight. I’m happily addicted again to this s—. Check http://BobSaget.com for my dates in 2022.”

Just days before his tragic death, he gave an interview about performing and how much fun he was having. He said, “I really love doing standup now more than I ever have. And I don’t talk politics. I don’t talk religion. I just want to make people laugh, you know? … I’m like The Blues Brothers where they would knock on the door and go, ‘We’re on a mission from God.’ I just want to make people have a good time and a good night out.”
He continued, “I’m getting ready to do a new special so you gotta go on the road and that’s why it’s so much fun going out to places where I get to a long set. You know, an hour. An hour and a half. Whatever feels right. I get to really play with the audience and try stuff. It’s not just all… I’m not as blue as I used to be. Some people go, ‘Saget, come on. I want ‘Entourage’ Bob.’ And I’m like, ‘OK, I’ll throw him in there.’ But it’s really kind of different versions. It’s me. I’m just being myself more. I love it. I just love it.”
Bob is best known for his role as Danny Tanner in Full House and the spin-off series Fuller House.
