"Every comedian I know, including myself, whether they will admit it or not, secretly wishes they were as good as Bob Newhart. " —Jerry Seinfeld
That stammer. Those basset-hound eyes. That bone-dry wit. There has never been another comedian like Bob Newhart. In this, his first audiobook ever, Newhart gives his brilliant and bemused twist on a multitude of topics, including flying, the trials of a family holiday in a Winnebago, and more serious subjects, such as golf. And, of course, there are side-splittingly funny stories from his life and career. Who else has a drinking game named after him? ("Hi, Bob!")
This isn't a memoir like most memoirs. It's a audiobook only Bob Newhart could have written, with his unique worldview and irrepressibly wry humor. Oh, and there's a fair bit of plain silliness, too.
Bob Newhart's television shows include The Bob Newhart Show and Newhart.
