Bob Saget died doing what he loved: making others laugh. In a January 5 interview on News4JAX — his last — Saget spoke about his “I Don’t Do Negative” comedy tour, for which he had performed a gig one night prior to his January 9 death in Florida, per Daily Mail. Saget revealed the driving force behind his continued passion for comedy, saying, “Everywhere where you are, you’re making people feel better, and that’s my job.” Saget also discussed why he eschews politics and religion in his routine. “I don’t want dissension in the room,” he said. “I just want to make people have a good time and have a good night out.” In a particularly sad line in hindsight, Saget was excited about hitting the road the next day. ‘I’m leaving tomorrow to be there so I can be, I’m going to Orlando and then I’m coming right to Jacksonville,” he shared.
The comedian also reflected on his late mentor, “American Bandstand” producer and professor at Temple University, Lew Klein. ‘You’re gonna make me cry, he was like a dad to me,’ Saget said, adding, “Lew Klein cared so much about students… He would talk with me and then we lost him not too long ago, which is very sad.”
