Saget turned emotional when he was asked about the late American Bandstand producer and Temple University professor Lew Klein, who died in June of 2019 at the age of 91.

Saget said of Klein, “You’re gonna make me cry, he was like a father figure to me,” noting that he helped her break into show business by getting him an internship on The Mike Douglas Show.

Saget praised Klein for taking care of the students in an academic career spanning more than six decades, saying, ‘It was my first training in show business, I was 19.

Saget said, ‘Leu Klein cared so much about the students, I have a couple of those teachers. ‘When you get a teacher like that in your life, it’s a real gift, whoever knows what I’m talking about, both my sisters were teachers and there’s nothing like it if you’re a good teacher and they really helped me’ and he would talk to me and then we lost him a long time ago, which is very sad.’

Saget said, ‘I’m leaving tomorrow to be there so I can be, I’m going to Orlando and then I’m coming to Jacksonville, I think this is my third time in Jacksonville in about a year. ‘We comedians have to go where the comedy is loud and I’ve had a great time in Florida, and I’m going back, it’s a really good theater too, it’s small.’

Saget told Hamilton that his comedy style had evolved in recent years because he was not ‘as blue’ [he] Used to be on stage.

He said, ‘I love doing standup now more than ever, and I don’t talk about politics, I don’t talk about religion, I just want to make people laugh and I don’t want controversy in the room. ‘I just want people to have a good time and have a good night, I’m getting ready to do a new special so we have to hit the road.’

Saget said that his comedic style was ‘a really different version of himself’, and ‘I just love it.’

Saget told Hamilton how he continued to work on his comedy career during the pandemic, including his podcast Bob Saget’s Here for You, which he started in April of 2020 during the early days of the pandemic.

He said he enjoys doing his own podcast and has welcomed “wonderful guests” to the stage for “great conversations”.

He said, ‘I just love doing it. ‘Wherever you are, you’re making people feel better, and that’s my job, and we get into it sometimes, but it also depends on whether I have a comedian or not… It’s actually a funny thing.’
