Comedy Icon’s Last Public Post, Written Mere Hours Before Death, Is Now Heartbreaking

Less than 48 before his autopsy, Bob Saget said he was ” loving every moment” of his recent comedy tour in a heartfelt last post to social media.

“I’m back in comedy like I was when I was 26,” he wrote on Instagram the night of Saturday, January 8. “I guess I’m finding my new voice and loving every moment of it.

“I had no idea I did a two hour set tonight. I’m back in comedy like I was when I was 26. I guess I’m finding my new voice and loving every moment of it… A’ight, see you in two weeks… Goin’ everywhere until I get the special shot. And then probably keep going cause I’m addicted to this sh*t. Peace out.”

Not 16 hours later, the comedy icon was found dead in his Florida hotel room. “Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room. The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case,” revealed Orange Co.’s Sheriff’s Office on Twitter Sunday evening.

Saget’s last post will forever show the face, words, and spirit of a man who felt in his prime. He was doing what he loved. Right until the very end.
