Bob saget spent 12 years touring and collaborating with Mike Young … and now the comedian talks about what Bob taught him and how he plans to pay homage to him on stage.
Mike was at LAX when he told us … there’s a good reason we’ve heard such complimentary things about Bob. Mike says it’s not one of those things that people talk nicely about because someone has passed away… he says Bob was the “real deal”.
The comedian backed this up by giving some details of his years on the road, opening up to Bob – explaining that he was such a nice guy, he had seen him invite hecklers backstage afterwards if he thought so. that he had hurt their feelings with jokes during the show.
You can tell how much his friend and mentor misses Mike … he told us how Bob took him under his wing and showed him the ropes. They had first met on the set of “Entourage”, instantly clicked and Mike started opening for almost all of Bob’s shows.
Sadly, Mike says he wasn’t with Bob for his last show in Jacksonville – he was due to join him for a show in Palm Beach, kicking off a 20-city tour.
Although Bob is no longer with him, Mike has assured us that he has a lot more to say about his friend, and he can’t wait to share countless funny memories with the audience when he gets back on the road.
Our sincere thanks to
