John Stamos says he was “disappointed” to learn that late comedian Bob Saget had been left out of the in memoriam segment of the 75th Tony Awards.

The US actor said the Broadway community “loved” Saget and had urged the organisation to include him in the remembrance section of the show.

The comedian, 65, who was known for his role as Danny Tanner in the US sitcom Full House, was found dead on January 9 of this year in a Florida hotel room.

Writing on Twitter ahead of the ceremony on Sunday night, Stamos wrote: “Disappointed to hear that @bobsaget will be LEFT OUT of the In Memoriam segment tonight @TheTonyawards.

“Bob was brilliant in The Drowsy Chaperone & Hand to God. Come on @BroadwayLeague and @TheWing ! Do the right thing!

“Bob loved Broadway and I know the community loved him.”
