Comedy legend Bob Newhart is celebrating his 55th anniversary in show business and has no plans of stopping. Noted for his one-sided phone conversations, hallmark straight man humor and deadpan, Newhart has entertained crowds for decades with appearances on stage, TV and film and is listed among Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time.”
Newhart’s debut comedy album, 1960’s “The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart,” was his first comedy album to hit No. 1 on the charts and won him winning multiple Grammy awards, including “Album of the Year” and “Best New Artist.” It also sold more albums than Elvis Presley and the cast of “The Sound of Music” and won a Grammy. Seven more albums would follow earning Newhart another pair of Grammys.
Newhart, who most famously starred in “The Bob Newhart Show” (1972- 1978) and “Newhart” (1982- 1990), and won his first Emmy award for a 2013 guest appearance as “Professor Proton” on the top-rated Big Bang Theory. He has also appeared in 14 feature films, including “Elf,” and “Catch 22” and provided character voices for major animated films such as “The Rescuers” and “The Rescuers Down Under.”
Newhart was inducted into the TV Hall of Fame in 1990, which he considers one of his greatest accomplishments, joining the likes of Johnny Carson, Lucille Ball, and Jackie Gleason to name a few. He is also a writer with his premier book “I Shouldn’t Even Be Doing This,” becoming a New York Times bestseller.
A prominent part of the soundtrack to our times, Michael McDonald has been thrilling listeners with his distinctively soulful style for four decades. From classics such as “What A Fool Believes” and solo hits like “I Keep Forgettin” through two highly-acclaimed Motown covers albums and recent genre-busting guest spots with alternative buzz bands Grizzly Bear and Holy Ghost, the five-time Grammy-winning McDonald is that rare thing in contemporary pop music – an artist and songwriter whose work is both timeless and ever-evolving.
