Hi Bob! (Drink!)

By weeklyvolcano on June 4, 2007

Bob Newhart, the befuddled comic genius best remembered for his TV shows “The Bob Newhart Show” and, later, Newhart, will receive a big "Hi Bob!" (drink!) Thursday when he strolls into the Pantages Theater to ma-ma-ma-make Tacoma laugh. 

The Jesuit-educated funnyman began his professional life as an accountant. So perfect.  Newhart looks like an accountant. He is, on the surface, the picture of boring.  But his stand up is certainly not.  PBS recently honored Newhart with an “American Masters,” er, honor.
