Late comedian Bob Saget will make one final performance in a comedy special, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.
Saget performed a set for pit bull dog charity Stand Up For Pits (SUFP) for a couple of hundred people at the famous Improv comedy club in Los Angeles in 2017.
The ‘amazing’ comedy set from Saget was filmed on that night five years ago, but the footage was never released.
Now close friend and comedian Rebecca Corry, 51, has landed a deal to edit that performance alongside other comics for a special film on Apple TV and Amazon.
Corry delivered the news at a 2022 SUFP event last week, where she also reflected on the 65-year-old Full House star’s loss.

Close friend and comedian Rebecca Corry, 51, tells DailyMail.com that Saget’s comedy set is ‘amazing’ and ‘really funny.’ They are pictured together at the 2017 event 
Corry told DailyMail.com: ‘I am excited for people to see the performance because it is unseen. It is really exciting. We get to see him and hear him and he is really funny. He was a love.
‘I am glad people are going to get to see it. He was amazing,’ Corry told DailyMail.com 
‘When he showed up, he got on his knees with my dogs and said really kind things.’
Saget passed away in an Orlando hotel room on January 9, 2022. Corry said his death left her heartbroken.
‘He is sadly missed. It’s horrible. There’s really no words.
‘It is shocking and unfair. I am honored that he cared enough to say the amazing things he did about the dogs and lent his talent. He was a real sweetheart.
‘I am glad people are going to get to see it. He was amazing.’
Corry said details of the content of his stand up set remain a secret, but teased: ‘It’s good. It is going to be amazing. We get to see him and hear him, and he is really funny and sweet.’
The special screens through Apple and Amazon on January 17, 2023.
Corry, who had the stand up performances in her possession for the last five years, has spent the last few months editing ‘the first ever Stand Up For Pits comedy special.’
Corry starred in the show alongside L Word and Ru Paul’s Drag Race star Fortune Feimster, Pam and Tommy star Adam Ray and TV writer Josh Wolf.

‘It is an amazing line up and an amazing show. I shot it and directed it,’ said Corry. ‘It starts January 17. I am really excited, because it is about time. It should be seen. I hope it raises more awareness and helps save more dogs.’
Corry recalled how Saget was a huge supporter of her long-running charity which aids abused pit bulls and aims to destroy negative perceptions of the breed.
Corry added: ‘Our Stand Up For Pits events have raised much needed funds, allowing us to save countless pit bull type dogs and donate hundreds of thousands of dollars of supplies to animal shelters.
‘These funds are crucial so we can save more dogs like Mama, one of our many rescues, who survived a life of abuse and as a result, had to have her ears removed,’ she said.
The dog lover added that the operation on the dog ‘has not dampened her spirit and teaches us so much about the compassion, forgiveness and inherent goodness these dogs have.’
‘Abuse and discrimination is wrong. Whether the abused or discriminated has two legs or four, it is wrong,’ she added.

Corry spoke at Sunday’s SUFP 13th LA gala, where guests included Ricki Lake and Christopher Lloyd.
The show was hosted by Big Bang Theory Emmy nominee Kaley Cuoco. 
The SUFP Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to educating, advocating and saving the lives of pit bull type dogs.
The charity operates and funds the only Los Angeles dog fighting tip line, serving over 10.1 million residents, SUFP also works nationally donating supplies to animal shelters, funding frontline rescue efforts and providing financial assistance to pet guardians who are unable to afford their dog’s veterinary care.
They are also the only organization offering free spay and neuter initiatives in underserved communities nationwide for pit bull type dogs.
