During his final interview with News4JAX anchor Bruce Hamilton, the star, initially known for his profane and raunchy comedy, disclosed that he loved how much he had evolved over the years.

Saget told Hamilton that he'd been blue when he first started. However, his style of comedy has since changed. He said he no longer talked about politics or religion. DailyMail reports him to have said in the interview: 

"I just want to make people have a good time and have a good night out, I'm getting ready to do a new special, so we got to go on the road."

Saget leaves behind his wife Kelly Rizzo, children Jennifer Belle, Lara Melanie, and Aubrey, and a legacy that will carry on long after his departure.
