Byron Allen says shedding Louie Anderson so carefully on the heels of Bob Saget‘s dying is an amazing intestine punch to comedians … who had been extra like household than co-workers.
The TV mogul, who bonded with Louie over a number of a long time, joined us on “TMZ Dwell” to take us behind the scenes of their most up-to-date gig collectively … the Byron-produced sport present, “Humorous You Ought to Ask.”
Byron says Louie lived to make everybody giggle — even when cameras weren’t rolling — and all the time preached kindness above all else.
There was one factor that particularly stood out for Byron, although… he says each time they wrapped up their present, Louie would give him a hug and say “I really like you. He would say goodbye to us as if it was the final time we had been going to see him.”

As we reported, Anderson died Friday morning after battling lymphoma — and Byron defined why we have heard so many celebs — particularly comedians — gushing about Louie and Bob.
He advised us they are a tight-knit group, actually a household, as a result of all of them got here up collectively — greater than 40 years in the past — when nobody knew their names.
Referring to the sadly rising record of entertainers who’ve handed within the final month, Byron mentioned, “God is snatching up a whole lot of angels, and it is painful.”
