One of Bob Saget's most famous friendships originated in Michigan and remained strong up until his death on Sunday. A chance encounter at a Motor City comedy club led to Saget meeting fellow comedian Dave Coulier, long before they would co-star on the hit comedy "Full House." Saget described meeting Coulier on his podcast "Bob Saget\u2019s Here For You," which gave fans an open mic to comment and ask him questions and launched in early 2020. Saget was 22 and already on his way in comedy upon meeting 18-year-old Coulier, a newcomer to the comedy scene from St. Clair Shores, at a Ferndale club named Delta Lady, according to reporting by the Detroit Free Press. Coulier said on the podcast that meeting Saget and watching him perform was a pivotal moment in his life. The two exchanged phone numbers and Saget told Coulier to call if he ever came out to Los Angeles. Not long after meeting Coulier, in 1980, Saget made his first appearance at Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle in Detroit. In those days, Saget often would stay in the basement of Coulier's parents' home, according to the podcast interview. Saget and Coulier would go on to star on "Full House" together from 1987 through 1995 and again on "Fuller House" from 2016 through 2020. Saget's death at 65 shocked peers and fans and tributes came flooding in on Twitter, praising the veteran comedian for his talent and kindness, according to reporting by The Associated Press. Heartbroken Coulier posted to Twitter his thoughts on his friend's passing. Saget also had family ties to Michigan. His father grew up in Detroit. While Saget never lived in the city, he said he spent a lot of time in the area over the years and has friends in the state, according to reporting by MLive.
