Three comedy greats are together again. It has been a rough 2022 so far with the deaths of Bob Saget, Louie Anderson, and now Gilbert Gottfried. Months before his own death, Gilbert took the time to honor two of his friends and fellow comedians.

Gilbert had shared a photo of himself alongside Bob and Louie and shared his grief on social media. On Jan. 21, he shared a photo of the trio and wrote, “This photo is very sad now. RIP Bob Saget and RIP Louie Anderson. Both good friends that will be missed.”
