At last year’s ComEx! Tonight, Candace Rosado ’21 interviewed comedian and actor Bob Saget, who died on Sunday, January 9.
ComEx! Tonight is a late-night-style talk show, including sketches, stand up performances, and interviews, produced as part of ComEx!, the Center for Comedic Arts’ annual comedy showcase. The 2021 show was written and produced by Comedic Arts students and hosted by Rosado.
In remembering him, Rosado tweeted that Saget said she was “cool”.
Thank you for thinking I’m cool. Rest easy ❤ pic.twitter.com/8CR1LlgNH4— Candace Rosado (@spicycheesecake) January 10, 2022
Affiliated faculty member Jon Rineman ’05 tweeted about seeing Rosado interview Saget, who starred in Full House and America’s Funniest Home Videos, and was a standup legend.
One of the nicest, happiest things I’ve ever gotten to see in real time was @spicycheesecake interview the great Bob Saget for ComEx at @EmersonCollege. For everyone, it was a dream come true. We all teared up at the end. Just like now. https://t.co/X3bF7RvgDq— Jon Rineman (@Rinemania) January 10, 2022
Along with Saget, ComEx! Tonight featured Reggie Watts (The Late Late Show with James Corden, Comedy Bang! Bang!), and Leslie Jones (Saturday Night Live, Supermarket Sweep, Coming to America 2).
