KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 10 — Hollywood and fans of actor Bob Saget are mourning the loss of ‘America’s dad’.

Tributes poured in on social media following the death of the iconic comedian and Full House star whom many will also remember as the host of America’s Funniest Home Videos.

Saget was found dead on Sunday in his Ritz-Carlton hotel room in Orlando, Florida.

He was 65.

His Full House co-stars expressed shock over their fellow actor’s death.

Saget was best known for playing widowed sports anchor Danny Tanner who receives help from his brother-in-law played by John Stamos and best friend played by Dave Coulier to raise his three daughters.

The father of three was in Florida as part of his ‘I Don’t Do Negative’ Tour, his all-new stand-up show that kicked off last Friday.

The comic was scheduled to perform across the US throughout 2022.

Saget’s last Twitter post was uploaded yesterday at 4.42pm, saying how much he had loved performing in Jacksonville for two hours.
