Bob Saget has been laid to rest, as nearly 300 people attended his funeral five days after his death.

The iconic actor’s funeral took place in the Hollywood Hills on Friday, attended by many of his friends and colleagues, including much of the Full House cast.

Stars including John Stamos, Lori Loughlin, Jimmy Kimmel, Kathy Griffin, Judd Apatow and Dave Chappelle attended.

It is reported that so many people wanted to attend that the staff had to bring out folding chairs to handle the overflow.

The beloved comedian, best known for starring in the US sitcom Full House, was pronounced dead at the age of 65 on Sunday in his hotel room in Orlando, Florida.

Orange County Sheriff’s Office officials confirmed Saget’s death early Monday, with a brief statement that showed there were no signs of foul play or drug use.

He said: ‘Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes, for a call about an irresponsible man in a hotel room.

‘The man was identified as Robert Saget and was pronounced dead on the spot.’

‘And now we grieve as a family.

‘Bob made us laugh till we cried. Now our tears flow in sadness, but with gratitude for all the beautiful memories of our lovely, kind, hilarious, cherished Bob.
