"After he died... I had to find a way that I could still be involved. I felt him say to me... 'You book the comedians, that was my job. Now that's your job.'”

Saget died on January 9, 2022 at the age of 65. He was found unresponsive in a hotel room in Orlando, Florida.
Rizzo took a moment to interrupt the interview with Fox News Digital and briefly burst into tears as she remembered her late husband.
"He was the deepest, most sensitive, most caring, most incredible man that ... anyone could have ever known and that this was his greatest passion, besides his family of course," she continued.

"All he wanted to do was share his message of love and laughter... so we're going to move on with that."
Reflecting on his nearly 20-year friendship with Saget, musician John Mayer said he's always been an incredible person throughout his life.

"Dinner after dinner, experience after experience ... we stayed in such close contact that we just lived our lives together," Mayer told Fox News Digital exclusively.

"It's a very, very heavy loss when you've been living your life with someone and they disappear."
