Saget had been on the road again since late last year. In his last Instagram post, he eerily wrote that “I’m back in comedy like I was when I was 26. I guess I’m finding my new voice and loving every moment of it.” Saget was on the road prepping his new hour for a new special which he was slated to tape later this year.
