Bob Saget allegedly said he didn’t feel well and that his hearing was “off” before performing a comedy set on the night of his death.

“I did hear him say, ‘I don’t feel good but I’m ready to do the show. This is what I do this for.’ He seemed to be talking himself up,” showrunner Rosalie Cocci told Orange County police in an interview conducted after the actor’s death, according to audio obtained by Page Six.

Cocci, who runs errands for talent and staff at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in Florida, added, “He said that his hearing had been off and that was the case that night. He was asking the sound guys to turn everything up.”

The showrunner further alleged that Saget said he hadn’t been feeling well the night before, and that in addition to his hearing being “off,” he had “a sore throat” and was “happy he had lozenges for the stage.”

Cocci claimed Saget “stated” that he was suffering from “long-term COVID” and it was “taking his body a long time to get over it.” She also noted that Saget “seemed OK” and was “cracking jokes” during his nearly two-hour performance.
