Johnny Mack with your daily comedy news. Bob Saget, eldest daughter shared a text. She received from Bob Saget a few hours before Bob’s death. The message to his daughter read. Thank you. Love you, Showtime.
From the Hollywood reporter. They dove into Bob Sacketts, voiceover work on how I met your mother. He was the voice of the older Ted that you heard doing the narration throughout that.
Co-creator Craig Thomas told the Hollywood reporter, we cast a different actors voice to be future Ted, because we liked the idea of future you telling past you. And it’s all going to be okay. The ups, the downs, you’ll make it through. Thanks for telling us Bob and making us feel that it’s true.
Sagun was also valuable behind the scenes. Thomas said he helped the show, which was created by a couple of untested children, me and Carter bays get and stay on the air. Having Bob Saget attached lends an air of legitimacy to the show and in the comedy community, it meant respect.
Serious star Josh Radnor, the younger Ted said Saget was the kindest loveliest, funniest, most supportive man, the easiest person to be around a mench among Menches. I had so much imposter syndrome. When, how I met your mother started. thought it’d be found out, kicked off set and sent home when I’d run into Bob on the Fox lot.
In those early days, he’d gush over my performance and tell me how he was studying me to make sure his vocal performance felt right. The man that I delighted in seeing on TV for years, cheering me on letting me know that I had a right to be there and playing that character. I can’t overstate how meaningful his words were.
He also true to form told me jokes. I can’t tell here or in private.
I’m endlessly grateful that how I met your mother brought Bob Saget into my life. I’ll hear his voice in my head for the rest of my days.
Esquire has a lengthy profile of Bob Saget from 2015. Ben Sklar wrote almost immediately after meeting Bob Saget he starts introducing me as his son.
We’re both tall. We both have dark hair. The age difference seems about right. It’s plausible
it’s the third week in March, where at south by Southwest, there’s a showcase Bob Saget as the head of. His wit as quick and everything, even our similar height and hair color is ripe for at least a cheap one-liner Saget later. It’s all the author. I have nine compartments in my brain and four of them don’t stop on that.
All the components seem to be engaged. He’s giving an on the spot interview to a journalist shoving, a tape recorder in Sagan’s face. He’s flashing his usual exasperated smirk for photographers on the red carpet. He’s leading the author. If you were particularly aromatic trailer outside containing several other comedians, including the notoriously weed friendly Doug Benson who offers us not a.
But a roast beef and vodka
Back upstairs, Saget discusses a rather intimate part of the male anatomy, none of the obvious ones with JFF.
Saget standup sets or anything with Polish, they consists mostly of crowd work. He’s one of the best graphic sexual and or bathroom humor. And self-effacing references to his own career, particularly full house.
On that night, he delivers an extended bit about his famous I’m cleaning this up here. Uh, I used to perform a fellatio for Coke, not in how it’s phrased in 1998 at comedy half. And how uncomfortable it was when his daughters were younger and fans would yell that line at sagging on the street. Saget ends a set with a few musical numbers, including one called Danny Tanner was not gay, which he sings to the tune of the Backstreet boys.
I want it that way. The crowd
is less than ideal and afterward backstage. He’s not sure how to say.
We had two APOs after party at a pop-up Soho house on the outskirts of Austin.
If this were in fact, an episode of entourage now would be the time that Saget orchestrates some sort of drug fueled orgy, but Bob Saget, entourage character isn’t any closer to the real Bob Saget than Danny Tanner is in sag it’s autobiography, dirty daddy. He made a point of going on the record.
The drugs are not for him. There are also several thoughtful pages devoted to his philosophy on love and relationships which doesn’t quite fall in line with that of Vinny chase sag had said back in the day I tried, but I just can’t have random sex at his core. Bob Saget is just a nice.
After a prolonged conversation with Jay Farrow, Bob Saget finds the author [3:30] AM. . We need to get a car back into the city, jeff Ross and bill Burr are drinking in the lobby of their hotel and we’re going to meet them. That’s an Esquire. It’s much longer than what I read there. You should check that out from 2015, just Google Bob Saget, Esquire.
More reactions from the interrobang Pete Davidson wrote about Bob Sackett. When I was younger and several times they were at a friendship, he helped me get through some rough mental stuff, but it wasn’t just a, Hey, how you doing? Davidson says Saget was generally concerned, wanted to help. He stayed on the phone with my mom for hours, trying to help in any way he can connecting us with doctors and new things we can try.
He would check in on me and make sure I was okay
on social media. Pete said, I love you, Bob. He was honored to know you and thank you for your kindness and friendship. My condolences to the.
The daily beast writes, Bob Saget, legendary roast proved how much comedians loved him.
the comedy central roast of Bob Saget from 2008, greg Geraldo was on that show. Greg himself would pass away two years later from an overdose of prescription drugs. He made fun of Bob sank, its characterization of himself. As an artist, joking, you are a vortex of artistic compromise.
Reminder. This is a roast, everybody that knows you loves and respects you. Nobody ever has a bad thing to say about you. That’s particularly surprising because you’re Jewish and you’re obnoxious people.
Gilbert Godfrey got up and said, it’s not true that Bob Saget raped and killed a girl in 1990. So if you have any proof that Bob Saget raped and killed a girl in 1990, stop gossiping and go right to the police with it.
That was also the night norm MacDonald played at straight norm got up and said, Bob has a beautiful face, like a flower golly flower at times. And Bob has something on his mind when he wears a hat.
When norm McDonald died. Bob Saget recorded a long podcast episode, paying tribute to his friend admitting at one point that he was not functioning too well in the aftermath. During that remembrance, he told the story of how nor McDonald ended up choosing such an odd approach to the comedy. Sag had said, I talked to him a week before the roast.
Then he said, I can’t say mean things about you because you’re my friend McDonald’s told him he was just going to read jokes from a forties joke book. sag had asked him to at least throw in an arbitrary F-word to keep with the mood of the roast. Norm said, I’m not going to do.
Just so many reactions to Bob’s passing Billy crystal, I’m shocked and saddened to learn that Bob Saget has gone a great friend, one of the funniest and sweetest people I’ve ever known my love to his beautiful family. Norman Lear Bob Saget was as lovely a human as he was funny.
And in my mind, he was hilarious. We were close friends and I could not have loved him more. We’ll be Goldberg sail on my friend, Bob Saget with your huge heart and abject lunacy. My condolences to his daughters and other.
Jon Stewart, Bob Saget, just the funniest, nicest
jason Alexander. I know that people lose loved ones, good people every day, no one gets a pass, but the loss of Bob Saget hits deep. If you didn’t know him, he was kind and dear, and he cared about people deeply. He was the definition of a good egg too soon.
Seth green dammit. Bob Saget, you left your body. I’ll forever. Celebrate your genius, your giant heart and joy for life. Thank you for helping me through the inevitable sadness of life with comedy. At least now you can hang with Rodney and Don again
josh GAD there, wasn’t a kind of person in Hollywood and Bob Saget. I’m having trouble wrapping my head around this. I don’t want to believe this. It’s all too much to handle Ken Junge. I’m in shock. I’m so numb right now.
Rob Schneider. Nice guys do finish first beyond his considerable talents. Bob Saget was a kind and gentle presence that always made everyone in the room feel at ease a sweeter man. There never was. And a wicked sense of humor that would make you howl with laughter. God bless you, Bob.
Bill bearer, Bob, you are a higher being. You understood what was truly important in life. More than anyone I ever met, you were a gift.
Jim Jefferies. Bob Saget was a friend and comedian. I looked up to you, but I looked up to him more because of the way he held himself and treated others. Aren’t miss the sky a lot.
Brian post-sale man. I haven’t loved that dude. And I’ll never see him at an airport and saw crap about stainless again. What a kick in the gut or IP, Bob Saget loved you, sir.
Today’s daily Combinator news is brought to you by all pro lines. That’s the podcast that combines comedy and football. They tweeted to honor Bob Saget today. Colts fans broke his record for cursing during a performance
Forget all the talk about the Jaguars moving to London. They already live in the cults heads.
There’s a report that the Browns are going to move forward with baker Mayfield. I think they misspelled the backward.
It was a really good week of football. And those guys are funny. All pro lines. It’s a podcast because stocky econom Apolis and Aaron Hodges are your hosts, all pro lines, wherever you get your shows.
One of Bob Saget final interviews was given to WT K S radio in Orlando. Last week on that interview, Bob Saget said, you can make people laugh and it might not be their cup of tea. But you’re doing something great for people. That’s why I’m doing it. We all have the same joke, which is that laughter is the best medicine.
No, actually it’s Percocet. Everybody has a version of that. Well, the other one is where they say, you know, if you could just make one person laugh, your really crappy comic
rolling stone reminded us all of Bob Saget, its appearance on the aristocrats. In 2005, Bob Saget was still America’s dad, the sweet caring father on full house and the lovably dorky host of America’s funniest home videos. He changed his legacy forever with an unexpected and memorable appearance in the 2005 at documentary the aristocrats.
If you don’t remember that film, it featured dozens of standup comedians telling and retelling the same joke. So it’s a basic setup. And then the devil is in the details. The basic setup is a family goes to a casting agent, , does all sorts of stomach churning and moral things to each other.
And then the agent asks, what’s the name of your act? And the reply is always the aristocrats. So the idea is to make it as dirty as possible.
in sag. It’s seven minute version of the joke. He touches upon diarrhea, pedophilia, fisting, and rounds upon rounds of singing and make them laugh while running up walls.
Like Fred Astaire.
In 2018 sag had said, aristocrats, couldn’t be done. Now. Maybe it would come out right now as an anti freedom of speech. The point was censorship. It’s different ways to do an art form, all telling the same thing. Everybody paint the same painting and see what happens. But it was really about freedom of speech.
I mean, Lenny, Bruce went to jail for saying things that were said overtly in the.
I briefly shared during Sunday, night’s bulleted. I met Bob Saget, at least once I feel like I met him more, but the time that always pops into my mind was. He was up at Sirius XM, guesting on our comedy channels, I guess. And he asked if there was a place where he can make a phone call. I don’t know if he had a business call or if he had to do a radio interview somewhere else in any way, I let him use my office.
So I always have this picture in my mind of Bob Saget, sitting at my desk. The phone as I walked up and down the hallway, talking about the meds, killing time with co-workers waiting for Bob sack has given me my office back, but he was really nice about it.
Enjoyed my time with him, seemed like a cool guy. When I met him for hearing from everybody else. It seems like a cool guy as well. The Sunday that think made me realize as well, having been in broadcasting for 30 years. News has a way of breaking an odd hours. I’m telling you in 2022, I don’t think I’ve left the house during this autocrine little burst here for more than 15 minutes.
The entire year . I go to the national donuts chain in the morning, get my coffee and come home. And then I’m just home all day. I don’t go anywhere. So on Sunday night I had to drop my son back off of college and I left the house at [8:00] PM on a Sunday night. So no, I didn’t bring the USB mic and the microphone.
And on that drive. Boy, my tech started lighting up. Everybody letting me know Bob Saget had passed away. So I did a quick bonus episode from the parking lot, but my point here is being somebody in the media. I’m telling you, news likes to break on Friday nights and holiday weekends, and never when you’re at your desk.
And on a normal episode of daily coming to news, I would tell you, Jim Gaffigan is on Jimmy Kimmel tonight. And that’s your company news for today. If you are new, do the seven days a week, 10 to 15 minutes come back to burrow.
