Bob Saget seemed to find another outlet for himself during the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting in April 2020, according to Apple Podcasts, Saget started “Bob Saget’s Here For You,” a weekly podcast where the comedian interviewed “friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love,” per the podcast’s description. He’s interviewed everyone from his friend John Stamos, to Bob Newhart, Jason Sudeikis, and B.J. Novak, to name just a few. He most recently posted an episode on January 3. The podcast itself was a really unique look at a variety of people in many different industries, but it, of course, focused on comedians, as well.
The purpose of the podcast was to be “entertaining and often informative,” while also “calming people” — the perfect project to launch when most people were stuck at home during the pandemic. Alongside the podcast and his standup tour, Saget was also continuing to work hard for charity, raising money for the Scleroderma Research Foundation as he’s done for many years. Saget had been raising money for the foundation via the Cool Comedy Hot Cuisine event, which turned virtual for the past two years, but previously was an in-person event starring a variety of comedians and entertainers.
