The Bob Saget Tribute
January 9, 2022
On January 9, 2022, we lost a kind, generous, gentle, and hilariously twisted friend. We produced a virtual event in support of Met Council that Bob Saget played a key role in. The event took place three days after his fellow comedian, Elon Gold, lost his brother to cancer. Bob showed us that comedians deal with grief very differently than we do. Everyone loved Bob, and he will be sorely missed. It was always a pleasure to collaborate with such an incredible man. With a heavy heart, we’ll continue doing what he would have wanted us to keep doing: Laughing.
