Comedian Bob Saget has died at 65. The star of “Full House” was found dead at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando on Sunday. The circumstances around Saget’s death are still unclear, however authorities said “no signs of foul play or drug use” were found. A statement read: “Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room. The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.”

Saget has been touring the country, and had just done a show in Jacksonville the night before. He tweeted early Sunday morning: “Loved tonight’s show @PV_ConcertHall in Jacksonville. Appreciative audience. Thanks again to @RealTimWilkins for opening. I had no idea I did a 2 hr set tonight. I’m happily addicted again to this s**t.”

Saget was best known for his role in “Full House” and was also the longtime host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” from 1989 to 1997.
