John Stamos says he was “disappointed” to learn that the late comedian Bob Saget was excluded from the Memorial category at the 75th Tony Awards.
His US actor said the Broadway community “loved” Saget and urged the organization to include him in the memory section of the show.
A 65-year-old comedian known for his role as Danitana at Sitcom Full House in the United States was found dead in a hotel room in Florida on January 9, this year.
Stamos wrote on Twitter prior to the Sunday night ceremony:
“Bob was great at The Drowsy Chaperon & My Hand to God. Come to @BroadwayLeague and @TheWing! Do the right thing!
“Bob loved Broadway. I know the community loved him.”
The commemorative part introduced by Matrix actor Laurence Fishburne featured later stars such as William Hurt, Sidney Poitier and Stephen Sondheim.
Saget was not included.
The Tony Awards, which celebrate the pinnacle of Broadway live theater, took place Sunday night at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
