Bob Saget, one of America’s most-lauded TV dads, battled with COVID-19 in the days before he passed away. The comedian revealed the news while discussing the highly transmissible Omicron variant during a recent appearance on the podcast “A Corporate Time with Tom & Dan.”

“It’s very popular, it’s doing very well,” he said of COVID-19. “It is not good, it does not feel good. I had it. I don’t know if I had Delta or … I might have had a combo. Maybe at one point, they [Delta and Omicron] were working together.”

“At one point Omicron was opening for Delta, but then Omicron got so big, Delta’s opening now,” he teased. Per TMZ, he also eerily joked that he might die from the virus.

Despite his dark humor, Saget was reportedly “feeling better” after his bout with COVID-19 and said that he was going to rest before his show in Orlando. “He did a two-hour show and he definitely had no indication that in any way he was having health difficulties,” the actor’s friend Josh Levs said. The “Full House” star passed away the day after the performance.

As previously reported by REVOLT, Saget was pronounced dead moments on Sunday night (Jan. 9) after he was discovered in his Orlando hotel room. Results of an initial autopsy haven’t been disclosed, but the Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that there was no evidence of either foul play or drug use on the scene. It may take weeks before the cause of death is revealed.

Saget touched the lives of many with his acting and comedic skills. In the wake of his death, fans and peers of the former “America’s Funniest Home Videos” host took to social media to share kind words about him.

“I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock,” wrote “Full House” costar John Stamos. “I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby.” TV daughters Candace Cameron Bure, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen also honored the late star. See some tributes below.
