TMZ has reported that famed comedian-actor Bob Saget has unfortunately passed away at the age of 65. He was said to have been found in his Orlando hotel room.

According to reports, both the city’s Sheriff’s Department and fire department arrived at the Ritz-Carlton “around 4 PM ET” following a call from the hotel’s security. He was pronounced dead on the scene — as of this report, there have been no confirmations in regards to cause of death.

Having been on a tour of sorts during recent times, the tragic news comes a day after Saget performed in Jacksonville‘s Ponte Vedra Concert Hall — he even tweeted about said performance earlier this morning:

As decorated as Saget was, many fans will probably still know him best as one of the lead actors on the ABC sitcom “Full House,” which ran on small screens from 1987 to 1995. Two years after beginning that stint, he would become the host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” providing fans an extra dose of laughs on the groundbreaking platform until 1997. In addition to appearing on “Fuller House” (a sequel series to “Full House”), Saget also gave some show-stealing performances for films like Half-Baked, Meet Wally Sparks, and Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd — he also held a voice role as the “present-day” version of Ted Mosby on How I Met Your Mother.

As expected, many of Sagets peers have already begun sending tributes to social media. One in particular is playwright Jeremy O. Harris, who delivered a heartfelt story:

“I had the pleasure of a once in a lifetime candid interaction with Bob Saget and Norman Lear a few months ago that had a warmth generally reserved for long time friends. Every story I heard about Bob was confirmed that night. His dark humor, generosity, and love for ppl. RIP xx”

Rest in peace to a true comedic legend.
