Bob Saget allegedly said he didnât feel well and that his hearing was âoffâ before performing a comedy set on the night of his death.
âI did hear him say, âI donât feel good but Iâm ready to do the show. This is what I do this for.â He seemed to be talking himself up,â showrunner Rosalie Cocci told Orange County police in an interview conducted after the actorâs death, according to audio obtained by Page Six.
Cocci, who runs errands for talent and staff at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in Florida, added, âHe said that his hearing had been off and that was the case that night. He was asking the sound guys to turn everything up.â
The showrunner further alleged that Saget said he hadnât been feeling well the night before, and that in addition to his hearing being âoff,â he had âa sore throatâ and was âhappy he had lozenges for the stage.â
Cocci claimed Saget âstatedâ that he was suffering from âlong-term COVIDâ and it was âtaking his body a long time to get over it.â She also noted that Saget âseemed OKâ and was âcracking jokesâ during his nearly two-hour performance.
“He wasn’t sweating, he didn’t miss a beat, nothing slurred â¦ He came out very energetic,” she said of Saget’s performance.
As for what was included on Saget’s rider, the comedian requested Diet Coke and Redbull. She added that she didn’t see him “ingest” anything all evening.
The “Full House” alum was found dead in his Orlando hotel room at the age of 65 on Jan. 9.
His autopsy showed that he had multiple skull fractures as well as bleeding and contusions to his brain and that his death was âthe result of blunt head trauma.â The medical examiner also noted that Sagetâs respiratory system was âCOVID-positive,â but did not clarify that finding.
His death was ruled an accident and authorities have said there were no signs of foul play or drugs at the scene. There were no signs of illicit drugs or toxins in his body, according to a toxicology report.
Cops reportedly believe that Saget had fallen and smacked his head on the marble bathroom floor before going to bed, where he died. Cops released photos of the room where Saget died earlier this week.
Saget had posed in a photo with a fan just hours before he died where he was seen smiling.
A judge granted Saget’s family’s request to permanently block the release of Saget’s autopsy report in March.
