Family, friends and admirers gather to pay their respects to the late Bob Saget as part of Netflix’s forthcoming tribute special.
Filmed Jan. 30 at The Comedy Store in West Hollywood, Dirty Daddy: The Bob Saget Tribute serves as “a celebration of Bob’s life in comedy,” according to the official logline. The special features Saget’s widow, Kelly Rizzo-Saget, his daughters Lara and Aubrey, and Full House castmates John Stamos, Dave Coulier and Candace Cameron Bure.
“Being respected in the stand-up comedy world was everything to Bob,” Stamos wrote on Instagram, shortly after the event. “The outpouring of love and respect that he got… at the Comedy Store really proved that he was at the top of his game!”
In addition to Saget’s family and costars, Dirty Daddy features appearances by Tim Allen, Mike Binder, Jackson Browne, Jim Carrey, Dave Chappelle, Darren Criss, Seth Green, Michael Keaton, Jon Lovitz, John Mayer, Chris Rock, Paul Rodriguez, Jeff Ross and Mike Young.
Saget’s death was first confirmed on Jan. 9 by Florida’s Orange County Sheriff’s Office, which shared in a tweet at the time that deputies had been called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes about an unresponsive man in one of the hotel’s rooms. Saget was identified and pronounced dead on the scene, but per the Sheriff’s Office, detectives “found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.” Saget had been performing stand-up on his latest tour, which kicked off in September 2021 and was set to run through June of this year.
One month later, the Saget family released a statement that confirmed that the comedian died of an accidental head trauma. He was 65.
