Dave Chappelle experienced firsthand how short life can be with the recent death of Bob Saget.
During a Thursday night comedy set at the Peppermint Club in West Hollywood, California, the controversial comedian openly grieved the unexpected loss of his close friend and former colleague.
“Tomorrow I’m going to go lay my comrade to rest,” he said in video footage posted to TMZ on Friday.
“Listen, I’m getting old, so a lot of people I know die... I started doing this comedy young. All of my peers are older than me. These [N-Words] is dying like hotcakes, but I didn’t see [Bob’s death] coming.”
“[Bob] just text me and I saw the text yesterday and never texted him back because I was just busy. Yeah, it happens,” the 48-year-old Emmy Award winner.
“I’m just saying this to remind you: these moments are precious,” he noted. “When I come out at night, I’m not just hanging out; I’m making memories. S—, when I go out at night, I’m making history.”
Saget, who became a household name as Danny Tanner on the 1980s ABC sitcom “Full House” died on Jan. 9 at 65.
A private funeral service for the beloved funnyman’s friends and family was scheduled to take place Friday in Los Angeles.
Authorities said there was no evidence of drugs or foul play. Authorities have said a heart attack or stroke are possible causes.
