“Okay, I loved tonight’s show @pontevedra_concerthall in Jacksonville. Really nice audience. Lots of positivity,” he began alongside a selfie from the stage shared on Sunday, January 9, via Instagram. “Happened last night in Orlando last night at the Hard Rock Live too. Very appreciative and fun audiences. Thanks again to @comediantimwilkins for opening.”

Saget admitted that he “had no idea” he performed a two-hour set during the Saturday, January 8, show.

“I’m back in comedy like I was when I was 26. I guess I’m finding my new voice and loving every moment of it,” he wrote.

“I’ve never met anybody like him. I also said I think in his other life, he should have been a travel agent. He’s so good at planning things and handling stuff. I don’t know how he does it,” she gushed exclusively to Us Weekly ahead of their nuptials. “He keeps me on my toes, literally. He’s just a wonderful guy. He’s a comedian, so there’s never a dull moment! And all of his friends are just so fun because they’re just as fun and unique and complex as he is.”

The former America’s Funniest Home Videos host, for his part, told Us about Rizzo’s connection with his kids.

“Kelly and my daughters love each other, so it really is some magical thing that happened,” he said at the time. “They just love each other. And we want to enjoy the love of each other, so that’s something that we want to do.”
