Paul Rodriguez is paying tribute to America’s dad…
The 67-year-old Mexican-American actor and stand-up comedian will appear in Netflix’s Dirty Daddy: A Tribute to Bob Saget, a special that celebrates his life and legacy.
The new Netflix special arrives five months after the comedy world lost the Full House star and stand up comedian.
“Bob wasn’t something that was taken away from us — he was something that was given to us,” says the trailer for the special.
The special will launch on Friday, June 10, on the streamer.
Saget died January 9 in an Orlando hotel room not long after a stand-up performance. His death at 65 rocked Hollywood and led to an outpouring of tributes, along with the farewell show at the Comedy Store in West Hollywood where Dirty Daddy was filmed.
In addition to Rodriguez, those taking part are Saget’s former Full House co-stars John Stamos and Dave Coulier, along with Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Jim Carrey, Michael Keaton, Tim Allen, Jeff Ross, Darren Criss, Jon Lovitz, John Mayer, Mike Binder, Jackson Browne, Seth Green, Mike Young and Candace Cameron Bure.
His widow Kelly Rizzo-Saget and their daughters Lara and Aubrey Saget also are set.
In the trailer, Rizzo-Saget steps to the stage and says, “The most important thing to him was belonging to this club, to this group, to being a comedian.” Carrey adds: “You created a cathedral of f*cking love, Bob Saget.”
As also noted in the trailer, everyone deserves a friend like Bob.
