Bob Saget arrives at the People's Choice Awards at the Microsoft Theater on Jan. 18, 2017, in Los Angeles.

Actor and comedian Bob Saget, found dead in an Orlando hotel room on Sunday, had performed his last show at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall the night before.

Saget, 65, played Danny Tanner on "Full House" in the 1990s and served as host of "America's Funniest Home Videos."

The Florida Theatre presented shows with Saget in July in Jacksonville and Saturday night in Ponte Vedra. The theater issued a statement Monday calling Saget "a true class act."

"Bob was a super nice guy who was terrific to work with," President Numa Saisselin said in the statement. "He was excited to talk with us backstage about his upcoming projects, and we’re heartbroken by this sudden news.”

Saget tweeted early Sunday that he loved the show in Ponte Vedra and the appreciative audience.

Saget was found unresponsive at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office.
