The 69-year-old comedian told Entertainment Tonight: “We didn’t care about the money, we just cared about trying to get on stage, doing our numbers for free. Bob was crazy and just had a contagious smile and always happy. Everyone loved Bob no matter what. Because he only had good things to say about people – and obscene things to say about you too. “
George recalled how he and Bob – who leaves behind his wife Kelly Rizzo and three children Aubrey, 34, Lara, 32, and Jennifer, 29 from his first marriage to Sherri Kramer – “used to run in the streets ”at the start of their career.
He also said that the crisp image people saw on TV was not what audiences saw on the live broadcast.
George said: “As much as we loved him as Danny Tanner [on Full House] and the host of America’s funniest videos, he had the dirtiest mouth in the world. Nobody bluer, nobody meaner, I can’t even tell you some of the things he told us about. Just crazy! But a lot of fun and we loved it. “
