Who was Bob Saget?

Robert Lane ‘Bob’ Saget was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA, on 17 May 1956, so his zodiac sign was Taurus. He appeared in 65 movies and TV series, and is perhaps still remembered best for portraying the main character Danny Tanner in the hit family comedy series “Full House”, which Jeff Franklin created, and which also starred Dave Coulier and John Stamos. The series follows three girls who are being raised by their widowed sportscaster father, it aired from 1987 through 1995, and won 16 of its 36 award nominations.


Bob was raised in Philadelphia by his Jewish parents; his father Benjamin Saget was a supermarket chain executive, and his mother Rosalyn a hospital administrator. The family moved to Norfolk, Virginia where Bob attended Lake Taylor High School, while they eventually moved to Los Angeles, California where Bob enrolled at Abington Senior High School, matriculating in 1974; his initial plan was to become a doctor, and it was his teacher of English language who noticed his creative potential and encouraged him to pursue acting.

Bob continued his education at Temple University, at which he created his first movie “Through Adam’s Eyes”; he simultaneously attended college and performed stand-up comedy at Catch a Rising Star and The Improv. Bob graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1978.

His debut film role was playing Therapy Patient in the 1980 short drama “Devices”, and the following year saw him make his debut TV series appearance, playing Bob the Comic in the episode “The Show Must Go On” of the comedy “Bosom Buddies”. It was only in 1987 that Bob began attracting attention, when he appeared in “The Morning Show”, while the same year saw him cast to star in “Full House”, which made him popular in both the US and Canada.

From 1989 through 1997, Bob hosted the comedy show “America’s Funniest Home Videos”, while the year 1996 saw him direct the drama movie “For Hope”, based on his sister Gay Saget’s life, who died from scleroderma in 1993.

It was on 9 January 2022 that Bob was found unresponsive at a Ritz-Carlton Hotel; he failed to leave the hotel on time, and his family became worried after he didn’t answer their calls. Autopsy revealed that he had accidentally hit his head, probably from a fall, which then caused a subarachnoid hemorrhage and subdural hematoma, and it’s believed that Bob died peacefully from these injuries in his sleep.
