After giving a moving eulogy for close friend and former ‘Full House’ cast member Bob Saget, John Stamos Bob managed to squeeze in one final joke before his death.
According to his BFF John Stamos, Bob Saget was sure to get one last joke in before his untimely demise. John, who portrayed Uncle Jesse on the long-running sitcom Full House, posted a screenshot of CNN’s announcement of Bob’s death on Jan. 9 at the age of 65.
The photo featured the actor standing in front of a sign advertising NBC’s Peacock streaming service. His head obscured the majority of the «pea,» leaving only the last four letters «cock» visible.
«Even in death, he managed to squeeze in one last dick joke!» On Saturday, Jan. 22, John said in his Instagram caption. «My guardian angel,» the 58-year-old said, «with the filthiest mouth and a heart as big and benevolent as forever.»
Bob was a highly successful stand-up comedian whose comedy was far from the family-friendly topic of the ABC series. Outside of playing Danny Tanner on Full House, he was a highly successful stand-up comedian whose humor was far from the family-friendly theme of the ABC series.
Since the death of his best buddy, John has been in profound sadness, originally stating on social media that he was «gutted» by the news. On Friday, Jan. 14, just six days after his sudden death, the actor served as a pallbearer at Bob’s private burial. John also gave a poignant eulogy for former America’s Funniest Home Videos host at the service.
«My initial impression when I read his last Instagram post was he seemed too ‘alive’ to die a few hours later,» John added in his address, referring to Bob’s stand-up comedy tour. Bob thanked fans for attending his Florida gig in his final Instagram post, saying he was back doing what he «loved»: stand-up comedy. «But I suppose that’s correct.»
All of us should aspire to ‘die alive.’ We don’t want to be remembered and discarded, plagued with sorrow and remorse. We want to be awestruck by the privilege and abundance of doing what we love. John said, «He died brilliant and fierce.»
Bob’s funeral was attended by the entire Full House cast, including Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, and Dave Coulier. As a tribute to Bob, the group released a joint statement with show creator Jeff Franklin.
«We got together as a TV family 35 years ago, but we became a real family.» «And now, as a family, we grieve,» the statement continued. «Bob made us cry with laughter. Our tears are now flowing in sorrow, but also in appreciation for all the wonderful memories of our dear, kind, amusing, and cherished Bob.»
