Bob Saget has died at 65.
The “Full House” star was found dead at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando on Sunday, TMZ first reported.
In a statement to ET Canada, his family confirmed Saget’s death.
“We are devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob passed away today. He was everything to us and we want you to know how much he loved his fans, performing live and bringing people from all walks of life together with laughter,” they said.
“Though we ask for privacy at this time, we invite you to join us in remembering the love and laughter that Bob brought to the world.”
The circumstances around his death are still unclear but authorities say in a statement: “Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room. The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.”

Saget has been touring the country, doing a standup show in Jacksonville the night before.
He tweeted early Sunday morning:
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 shit. Check https://t.co/nqJyTiiezU for my dates in 2022. pic.twitter.com/pEgFuXxLd3

The tour was scheduled to go until May 2022.
Saget was best known for his role on “Full House” as Danny Tanner. He was also the longtime host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” from 1989 to 1997. Other roles included “Entourage”, the narrator on “How I Met Your Mother”, and many more.
Saget is survived by his wife Kelly Rizzo and three kids.
Tributes poured in from his fellow celebs, including Margaret Cho who told ET, “He was an amazing comedian and a really warm and generous man. It doesn’t seem real to me yet as I just saw him last week and it’s hard to even imagine him not being here. He was the best.”
I know that people lose loved ones, good people, every day. No one gets a pass. But the loss of Bob Saget hits deep. If you didn’t know him, he was kind and dear and cared about people deeply. He was the definition of “a good egg”. Too soon he leaves. #RipBobSaget

Bob Saget was as lovely a human as he was funny. And to my mind, he was hilarious. We were close friends and I could not have loved him more. pic.twitter.com/TM8r1hzCfO

There wasn’t a kinder person in Hollywood than Bob Saget. I am having trouble wrapping my head around this. I do not want to believe this. It’s all too much to handle.

This is insane. He was so young, and one of the sweetest comics around. Kind and genuine every time you saw him. What a loss.
