Kind of weird for him to just be dead at 65 in a hotel room.  Wonder if the cause of death will ever be released.

He was touring for his comedy act.  Initial reports said no evidence of drugs/alcohol or foul play.

Shiny thing!" - Maximillian Liao, "My Triumph", audio dictation, 3030.  Unpublished.

Yeah, makes me wonder if he had some sort of medical condition.

Had the pleasure of watching Saget’s stand-up act in person.  Wonderful that he was never the bland character that he was paid to play on TV.
"Ah, yes.  The belle dame sans merci.  The sweet young thing who will blast your nuts off.  The kitten with a whip.  That mystique?"
"Slavish adherence to formal ritual is a sign that one has nothing better to think about."
"Variety is the spice of battle."
"I've fought in... what... a hundred battles, a thousand battles?  It could be a million as far as I know.  I've fought for anybody who offered a decent contract and a couple who didn't.  And the universe is not much different after all that.  I could go on fighting for another hundred years and it would still look the same."

Heard there was trouble a few times when people went to shows expecting to see a family-friendly performance.

It's too bad.  The America's Funniest Videos got its start thanks to him and other hosts presenting the videos in amusing ways.

Saget certainly was not happy fully being type casted as a America's dad.   That being said, I have to agree it sounds like he had medical condition.

Ever see his bit on The Aristocrats?

LOL!  It's not for the faint of heart, he could be pretty damned nasty and dark.

Yep.. he was not "American's Dad" when he did his comedy shows.

Well, this morning there are reports that Bob might have suffered a heart attack or stroke, but apparently the original source is speculation by TMZ so that should probably be taken with a grain of salt.

Apparently the autopsy results have been made public: Bob fell in the bathroom and hit his head, then went to sleep.
