After the death of Bob Saget, fans went back and looked at some of his previous work as a way to remember the comedian of happier times. Many of his fans will never forget the surprising cameo he had in Half pastry, a stoner comedy film released in 1998. Directed by Tamra Davis and co-written by Dave Chappelle and Neal Brennan, the film follows a group of stoners who have become weed traders who raise money to make one of their own from the great house to sponsor.
At one point in the film, Chappelle’s character decides to quit wet smoking to further pursue a potential relationship with a love interest. He goes to a support group for people struggling with addictions, and when he announces that he is there for marijuana addiction, he is met with anger from all the others who attended. Saget stands up memorably and condemns that “marijuana is not a drug,” as he has performed certain sexual favors in exchange for cocaine. When Chappelle admits he has never done the same for marijuana, Saget replies, “I did not think so.” Watch the NSFW scene below.
In more recent years, Bob Saget has become very famous for his harsh comedy, and this cameo does not seem so strange in retrospect. At the time, however, he was mostly known to the general public for his more family-friendly image on which he portrayed Voltal and America’s Funniest Home Videos. For many, this vulgar cameo served for the first time that there was another side to the comedian.
Bob Saget’s half-baked pals mourn the loss
Dave Chappelle, co-writer and star of the film, remained friends with Bob Saget for decades. Days ago, Chappelle performed a stand-up show and told the audience of Saget’s death. Chappelle felt some hurt and regret, because after that happened, he later saw he had a text message from Saget that was never responded to. The incident serves as a life lesson for Chappelle, who admits that he “got busy” and now only wishes he could talk to Bob again.
“Listen, I’m getting old, so many people I know are dying,” Chappelle said, per Deadline. “I started doing this comedy young. All my friends are older than me. This [people] dies like sweet cake but I did not see [Bob’s death] come… [Bob] Just texted me and I saw the text yesterday and never sent it back because I was just busy. Yes, it happens. I say this just to remind you: these moments are precious. When I go out at night, I do not just hang out; I make memories. S—, when I go out at night, I make history. ”
Neal Brennan, who co-wrote the film with Chappelle and was also a friend of Saget’s, added on Twitter: “Until I find out what my friend Bob Saget’s cause of death is, I’m just going to assume irritable bowel syndrome. is what he would like. ” This followed a simpler tweet posted shortly before that read Saget’s name and included a sad emoji.
“So sad to hear from my friend Bob Saget who passed away,” adds Harland Williams, another head of the comedy starring Saget in Dick word. “He loved making people laugh all the time. Bid directed me in one of my movies called Dick word. Bob and I spoke our own hilarious language. So very sad he is gone. Thoughts and prayers to his family. Bob you will be missed. Thanks for the laugh mate. TEAR.”
And Tracy Morgan, another veteran comic who also had a film in the film, posted a picture of himself with Saget, Gilbert Gottfried and Chelsea Handler. All he could say was, “Shout to my mate. RIP.”
Bob Saget was a person who meant so much to so many people. We will always have the memories that will make you laugh for a while. Rest in peace.
