Saget has been touring the country, doing a stand-up show in Jacksonville the night before.

“Loved tonight’s show @PV_ConcertHall in Jacksonville. Appreciative audience. Thanks again to @RealTimWilkins for opening. I had no idea I did a 2 hr set tonight. I’m happily addicted again to this s**t,” he tweeted early Sunday morning.

The tour was scheduled to go until May 2022.

Saget was best known for his role in “Full House” as Danny Tanner. He was also the longtime host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” from 1989 to 1997. Other roles included “Entourage”, the narrator on “How I Met Your Mother” and many more.

Saget is survived by his wife, Kelly Rizzo, and three kids.

Tributes poured in from his fellow celebs including Margaret Cho who told ET, “He was an amazing comedian and a really warm and generous man. It doesn’t seem real to me yet as I just saw him last week and it’s hard to even imagine him not being here. He was the best.”
