Jim Carrey, Chris Rock and John Stamos perform at Bob Saget tribute show

Jim Carrey, Chris Rock and John Stamos celebrated their late friend Bob Saget during a tribute show at The Comedy Store on Sunday, Film News reports.

The publications adds that the stars were joined by singer John Mayer, Glee star Darren Criss, comedian Jeff Ross and Saget’s widow Kelly Rizzo at the West Hollywood comedy club, where the comedian launched his career at the age of 21.

His close friends, family and fans packed out the venue’s Main Room for the sold-out tribute show, which also served as a fundraising benefit for the Scleroderma Research Foundation, a cause close to Saget’s heart.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Saget’s Full House co-star Stamos co-hosted the event with Mayer and Ross and teamed up with Criss and Mayer to perform as the house band. They played music as Rock, Carrey and Ross took to the stage to perform stand-up sets that celebrated their friend’s life and legacy.

His widow Rizzo also got up on stage and performed her first-ever stand-up routine in honour of her late husband, who passed away 9 January aged 65.
