Celebrities React To Bob Saget’s Death

The world of comedy and entertainment was shaken by Bob Saget’s sudden January 9 death. Legendary comedian Gilbert Gottfried shared on Twitter, “Still in shock, I just spoke with Bob a few days ago.” He added, “We stayed on the phone as usual making each other laugh. RIP to friend, comedian & fellow Aristocrat Bob Saget.” Patton Oswalt, who has drawn some professional comparisons to Saget, tweeted an emotional remembrance, “Bob was at my house in October interviewing me for a documentary. He was sharp and dark and funny as always and we were gonna catch up over coffee when he was done editing and now I’m crying F***.” 

Meanwhile, Kathy Griffin, quoting a January 3 B.J. Novak tweet musing that he has “always and always will love Bob Saget,” added upon the news of Saget’s death, “I agree. You couldn’t find a nicer or sharper wit than Bob Saget. Shocked and devastated.” For his part, Novak tweeted, upon the saddening news, a simple broken-heart emoji.

Saget definitely seemed well-liked not just as a comedian but as a person by those who knew him. Kat Dennings, who played Saget’s daughter on the early 2000’s sitcom “Raising Dad,” described him on Twitter as “the loveliest man” and “always so kind and protective,” while fellow funnyman Jim Gaffigan tweeted, “What a warm kind man we lost. The world has lost one of the nicest.”
