Although Bob Saget was idolized by many comedians for his profane and often cutting act, he was best known for his role in the sitcom, Full House, where he starred alongside the actors John Stamos and fellow comic Dave Coulier.

He won plaudits for his portrayal of Danny Tanner, a widowed father of three daughters, playing the role from 1987 to 1995.

Bob Saget reprised the role in 2016 when Netflix revived the program for a further five seasons.

In more recent years he found fame among younger generations as the narrator of the hit show How I Met Your Mother and for his guest stints as a highly fictionalized version of himself in the TV series, Entourage.

John Stamos, who worked with Bob Saget on Full House and Fuller House tweeted: “I am broken. I am gutted.  I am in complete and utter shock.  I will never ever have another friend like him.  I love you so much Bobby.”

Candace Cameron Bure remembered Bob Saget, who played her father on Full House, writing on Twitter: “I don’t know what to say . I have no words. Bob was one of the best humans beings I’ve ever known in my life. I loved him so much.”


John Stamos has been charged with driving under the influence of drugs, stemming for his June arrest in Beverly Hills.

The actor, best known for Full House and ER, is due to appear in court for a hearing on October 16.

John Stamos’ arrest in Los Angeles followed reports of him “allegedly behaving strangely and driving erratically”.

The 52-year-old actor, who is currently working on two TV shows, could face a maximum six-month jail sentence if convicted of the misdemeanor offence.

New Fox series Grandfathered, which premiered last month, casts John Stamos in the central role of a middle-aged man who discovers he has a son and infant granddaughter he never knew about.

John Stamos also has a recurring role in Fuller House, the Netflix reboot of sitcom Full House, which is shooting in Hollywood and set to debut on the streaming service in 2016.

Neither Fox nor Netflix made any comment on how the shows might be affected.

A hearing at LA’s Superior Court on October 16, could see a resolution to the case or the setting of a pre-trial hearing, which could mean any jail time for John Stamos is unlikely before the new year.

Beverly Hills police declined to identify the drug John Stamos had allegedly taken before his arrest, nor is it identified in the charging document.

John Stamos, who was taken to hospital at the time of the incident on June 12, checked into rehab following his arrest.
