John Stamos Called Out The Tony Awards For Not Including Bob Saget In Memoriam and I’m So Glad He Did

The 75th Tony Awards were on tonight.


During the show, Billy Porter performed a rendition of of the song “On the Street Where You Live” for the Memoriam.

It was truly a beautiful and moving performance but something I missed while watching was the fact that in the memoriam, the award show forgot Bob Saget.

Honestly, I had no idea that Bob Saget ever did broadway so I didn’t think of anything of it until John Stamos called out the award show about it.

For starters, in case you’re wondering, Bob Saget’s career on the New York stage included :

  • a Broadway musical comedy (2015 “Hand to God”)
  • a Broadway musical (2007 debut “The Drowsy Chaperone”)
  • Off-Broadway drama (2005 “Privilege” at Second Stage

So, why wasn’t he included?

Sure, it could have been a shortened version of those that have passed (usually the rest is listed online).

However, Bob Saget was such a huge inspiration and was loved by so many and his unexpected death truly shook everyone.

John Stamos posted on Twitter saying:

Disappointed to hear that @bobsaget will be LEFT OUT of the In Memoriam segment tonight @TheTonyawards. Bob was brilliant in The Drowsy Chaperone & Hand to God. Come on @BroadwayLeague and @TheWing ! Do the right thing! Bob loved Broadway and I know the community loved him.

Honestly, he is not wrong. So sad that they forgot him.
