He's one of those people who I hear referred to all the time on American podcasts and I haven't got a clue who he is, but 65 is no age regardless.

Wasn't a fan of his stand-up, but he gave good podcast. Lots of tributes appearing saying what a lovely guy he was.

Saget, bag it and tag it.

Seemed to be friends with and around a lot of comedians, also did a few wrestling related bits. Seemed like a popular guy. He just tweeted yesterday how much he had fallen back in love with comedy and doing live gigs.

Very shocking. I wonder what happened, since he'd just gigged and tweeted less than 24 hours ago. Drugs and foul play were ruled out by police.

Shaky

He looked pretty damn good for 65 as well. Maybe a heart thing?

He's with Pam now. Less than a year after we lost Screech "Dustin Diamond" Powers, too. Jaleel White must be feeling nervous.

Watched The Aristocrats just last week and he seemed like a very nice guy in that. RIP

He'd sent a message to fans only a few hours earlier where all seems fine and dandy. Scary.

I saw him back live back in 2018 as my Danish ex was a huge fan of his, and I was really impressed by the majority of his act, it might not have been the most innovative of stand up but it was very funny. I'd only just set up my blog at the time but wrote a review of that gig which was largely positive, but mentioned how one song about a man transitioning to a woman had elements that I was uneasy about - only for Bob to get in touch with me via twitter, where we had a few exchanges discussing it, with the end result being that he said he'd never perform it again as he hadn't realised that it might upset someone until now. All of which made me admire him an enormous amount, my review was on a blog which didn't exactly get a huge amount of traffic, but he took the time out to try to understand my thoughts about the show, and all the while he was incredibly polite and friendly.

That's amazing, what a guy.

Yeah same, and on sitcoms too, which made me think he was a lot older than 65 for some reason.

This is sad news, I was very moved by him talking so openly about how he and Norm loved each other after Norm passed away. Seemed like a really nice and genuine guy.

That's very sweet, he always seemed like a lovely guy and it certainly seems like the whole industry adored him, even the Olsen Twins who obviously had a rough time in showbusiness. I've never really watched his stand-up, but I might check it out on your recommendation. I have seen this clip of him at Rodney Dangerfield's club doing a fast-paced act, I love the delivery.

I mostly remember him as the family friendly host of America's Funniest Home Videos in the late 90s, but he was great in the Aristocrats, Larry Sanders (sending up his own rapid-fire delivery) and of course, as the subject of the greatest roast ever. Seems like nobody had a bad word to say about him.

Ladies and gentlemen, this man is for the birds.

How did he die, then? Asphyxiwank?
