Saget became emotional when asked about Lou Klein, the late American band producer and Temple University professor who died at the age of 91 in June of 2019.

“You’d make me cry, he was like dad to me,” Saget said of Klein, noting that he helped him break into the show business by having an internship at The Mike Douglas Show.

“It was my first initiation into show business, I was 19,” Saget said, praising Klein for nurturing students in a teaching career that spanned more than six decades.

“Lou Klein cared so much about the students, and I had two of those teachers,” Saget said. When you have a teacher like this in your life this is a real gift anyone watching what I say both my sisters were teachers and there is nothing like that if I was a good teacher and he literally helped me and he was talking to me then we lost him not too long ago that’s very sad .

Saget said his comedic style was “kind of a different version” of himself, adding, “I just love him.”

“I just love to do it,” he said. “Everywhere you are, you make people feel better, and that’s my job, and we go into the depths of it sometimes, but it also depends on whether I have a comedian… It’s really a fun thing.”
