Lara Melanie Saget might have earned popularity as the daughter of comedian Bob Saget. But she is also an accomplished artist and one who has carved her own career path.
Lara Saget is a multi-talented woman. And every step of the way, you can notice the joy and will to live that her father possessed.
Who Was Her Father?
There is probably not a single person in the United States who doesn’t know about Full House actor Bob Saget. He was the one who brought laughter and joy to the homes in the US.
Born in May 1956, he passed away in January 2022. Saged was an American stand-up comedian, actor, and television host. He initially got famous by portraying Danny Tarner in the TV Show Full House from 1987 until 1995. Saget was also part of the sequel, Fuller House from 2016 to 2020.
During the 1980s, he was also the original host of America’s Funniest Home Videos. Back before there was YouTube, memes, Reddit, and similar sources of entertainment, Sages’s show from 1989 to 1997 was the source of entertainment. He was also the voice of narrator Ted Mosby during How I Met Your Mother.
Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he was the son of hospital administrator Rosalyn and supermarket chain executive Benjamin Saget. When he was just a young boy, his family moved to Norfolk, Virginia, where he attended Lake Taylor High School.
Later in his life, Saget credited his time there and said he developed his sense of humor while being a rebellious student at the Conservative Synagogue Temple Israel in Norfolk.
The family would later move to Los Angeles, California. There, he met Larry Fine of The Three Stooges and listened to him telling stories.
For his education, Saget attended Temple University’s film school. There, he created Through Adam’s Eyes, a black-and-white movie about a boy who received reconstructive facial surgery. For that movie, he received the Student Academy Award.
During his university days, Saget began his stand-up comedy career by performing in clubs such as Improv and Catch a Rising Star in New York City.
His breakthrough role came when he was cast as Danny Tanner in Full House in 1987. The television show became a success with family viewers. Two years later, he began his career as the host of America’s Funniest Home Videos. He held that role until 1997.
During the 1990s, he worked on Full House and America’s Funniest Home Videos simultaneously. In 1998, he directed his first feature film, Dirty Work. While the film received negative reviews from critics, it has become a cult favorite, mainly because of Artie Lange’s popularity on The Howard Stern Show.
As for his personal life, in 1982, he got married to Sherri Kramer. They have three daughters together, one of them being Lara Melanie Saget. The other two are Aubrey Saget and Jennifer Belle Saget.
Bob and Sherri divorced in 1997. In 2018, he got married again, to television presenter Kelly Rizzo. They remained married until his death in 2022.
As we said before, Lara Saget has carved her own path. Let’s find out more about it. Many recognize her as the daughter of the late American comedian and television host, but she is a celebrity of her own.
The celebrity child is multi-talented. Born in Los Angeles in October 1989, Lara is the middle child in the family. She has an older sister, Aubrey Saget, and a younger sister Jennifer Saget.
Her early life was heavily influenced by the television series Full House. She was born two years after the show started, and a large part of her childhood included visiting her father on the Full House set.
Bob and Lara’s mother, screenwriter, and author Sherri Krammer were high school sweethearts. They tied the knot in 1982 and spent 15 years together. When they divorced in 1997, Lara was only eight years old. Her mother moved out of the spotlight. Nowadays, however, Sherri works as a marriage and family therapist.
Fun fact: Lara holds two bachelor’s degrees. One from the private woman’s liberal arts Barnard College, and another from Columbia University. She got her master’s degree from New York University.
What Does She Do For A Living?
Nowadays, Lara works as an artist with glass. Not much has changed since she got her college degree. Her career has kept her in New York where she carved a path of a successful artist. Lara’s works can often be found around the city. The celebrity child says art is her passion, and you can see it in every aspect of her life.
In 2013, she co-founded Studio 200 alongside her older sister Aubrey. The studio functions as a traveling art exhibition collective. They have a home art gallery in Brooklyn, but you will often see it in many locations in New York and Brooklyn.
Speaking about what drives her, she says, “My works make materially visible the limitations of logic. My practice is fueled by the belief that not all facts are absolute. Facts are, more often than not, placeholders for future facts. The deeper the digging, the more exponential reality becomes. The truth is bigger than the brain will ever cognitively understand, it’s limitless”.
Speaking about her path, she says she started with rock and historic sourced Tuckahoe marble and eventually found that the marble cracks the glass and the heat of the metal cracks the rock or marble. So, she logically moved to glass.
Working As A Yoga Teacher
You can hardly make the distinction between where her career as an artist ends, and her passion as a yoga teacher begins. You can say both yoga and art are her career choices, hobbies, and passions.
Lara Melanie Saget has the same brunette locks that her father had and similar facial features. She keeps herself fit by practicing yoga but also teaching it. You can find many posts on Instagram with Lara showing her yoga practice.
Speaking about yoga, she said, “I have been teaching yoga for over a decade, and I have learned more than I could imagine about teaching yoga during this pandemic. I thought the screen would be a foreign entity, something I couldn’t relate to. This screen is a mirror”.
Building A Successful Career
Many people recognize Lara as the daughter of the late American host and comedian. But she has made it big in the art world. Her art pieces have been on display on international art exhibition platforms.
If you are a fan of her art, you can find it in many locations in the Big Apple. Her Studio 200 moves around the city. Tracking down her exhibit is not difficult.
But New York City is not the only place where you can find some of her work. She has also been featured in Los Angeles, India, and Wells Studio in Paris.
Is She On Social Media?
Well of course. Social media is her big platform for showing off her work. Lara has more than 13k followers on Instagram. That might not sound like a lot, but it is more than enough for the talented artist to spread her word.
Her bio reads, “Artist, Curator, and Rducator. Co-founder Studio 200 Nyc and Yoga Instructor”.
In the world of Hollywood, it is a rarity to find a celebrity child who has carved a successful career and made millions. Lara is one such case. She has a net worth of $3 million. That might not be a lot compared to her father, who had a whopping $50 million net worth at the time of his death.
Yet, it is still a lot considering a lot of celebrity children do not start any type of career. Lara has been a successful artist and yoga instructor for decades.
