Netflix Releases Trailer for Bob Saget Tribute
The special Dirty Daddy: The Bob Saget Tribute premieres on Netflix this Friday, June 10. The tribute was filmed at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles, as his wife Kelly Rizzo-Saget joined some of his famous friends to remember him.
Saget, who appeared on The Masked Singer as Squiggly Monster in Season 4, sadly passed away in January at the age of 65 from head trauma. Investigators concluded that he accidentally hit his head in his hotel room in Orlando, Florida.
According to People, the tribute event took place shortly after Saget’s death, with friend Jeff Ross describing it as “a small impromptu punk rock shiva.” He added that everyone “laughed and cried for four hours.”
The special also features appearances from Seth Green, John Mayer, Dave Chapelle, Michael Keaton, Candace Cameron Bure, Dave Coulier, Tim Allen, Jon Lovitz, and more.

John Stamos Reads His Last Text from Saget
In the trailer for the new special, Saget’s co-star and friend John Stamos reads what he says is the last text exchange he and Saget had. Saget apparently told him that “God gave me the brother that I wanted.”
Stamos responded, “Well, you have a lot of God-given brothers, but I’m first, right?” Saget apparently replied, “Mayer is an amazing friend, but he’s more fair-weather. You’re always there, so you’re number one.”
The funniest part is that John Mayer is sitting right behind Stamos as he says this. He seems to get a kick out of the comment, along with the crowd.
