Saget was on tour in Florida when he died. He had performed a stand-up comedy set in Jacksonville the previous night.

In 2020, Saget launched a podcast titled “Bob Saget’s Here For You”. While taking a call from a fan 6 weeks ago, Saget confirmed he had received the Covid-19 mRNA booster shot.


Saget leaves behind his wife of 3 years, Kelly Rizzo, and three children by his ex-wife, Sherri Kramer.

Rizzo, who is 23 years younger than Saget, recently told her Twitter followers she was “vaccine hesitant.”

There is rampant speculation on Twitter that Saget’s sudden death was related to the vaccine.
