Bob Saget’s untimely death has reminded Dave Chappelle that life is too short.
In a video posted on TMZ, the “Chappelle’s Show” comedian opened up about losing the “Full House” star. “Tomorrow I’m going to go lay my comrade to rest,” Chappelle said during his comedy set on Thursday (Jan. 13). “Listen, I’m getting old, so a lot of people I know die … I didn’t see Bob coming. Man, he just texted me, and I saw the text yesterday, and I never texted him back ’cause I was just busy. It happens.”
“I’m just saying this to remind you that these moments are precious,” he added. “When I come out at night, I’m not just hanging out. I’m making memories. Shit, when I go out at night, I’m making history.”
As REVOLT previously reported, Saget passed away on Jan. 9 at the age of 65. Authorities believe he died peacefully in his sleep and there were no signs of foul play or drug use in his case.
The actor spoke to his wife after his performance in Jacksonville on Jan. 8. When she was unable to reach him the next morning, she reached out to his hotel. Security discovered him lying face up when they entered his room. They contacted authorities, who declared Saget “unresponsive and not breathing” upon their arrival.
“We are devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob passed away today,” the family said in a statement. “He was everything to us and we want you to know how much he loved his fans, performing live and bringing people from all walks of life together with laughter. Though we ask for privacy at this time, we invite you to join us in remembering the love and laughter that Bob brought to the world.”
A private funeral is being held on Friday (Jan. 14) for Saget. May he rest in peace.
