By Vicki Newman

Bob Saget was looking towards the future in a heartbreaking final social media post just hours before his death.

The Full House star was found dead at a hotel in Orlando, Florida on Sunday.

The 65-year-old's cause of death is not yet known.

Bob, who played Danny Tanner in the ABC sitcom, had been touring the States with his stand up comedy.

And in a final Instagram post, published just hours before his tragic passing, the actor had shared his excitement about what was to come.

Sharing a selfie he'd taken from the stage, with an acoustic guitar seen lying on a stool behind him, Bob wrote: "Okay, I loved tonight’s show @pontevedra_concerthall in Jacksonville. Really nice audience. Lots of positivity.

"Happened last night in Orlando last night at the Hard Rock Live too. Very appreciative and fun audiences.

"Thanks again to @comediantimwilkins for opening. I had no idea I did a two hour set tonight. I’m back in comedy like I was when I was 26. I guess I’m finding my new voice and loving every moment of it.

"A’ight, see you in two weeks Jan. 28 & 29 @pbimprov with my brother @therealmikeyoung - And check BobSaget.com for my dates in 2022 – – Goin’ everywhere until I get the special shot. And then probably keep going cause I’m addicted to this s**t. Peace out."

While fellow actor and comic Kevin Nealon penned: "Good bless you, Bob. It's been a lot of years with us."
