27. Bob Newhart

Recommended Posts

He turned 86, recently, & looks kinda ghastly. I tried to search & see if there was a thread for him, already, but nothing came up.

I could have sworn there was a thread for him. Definitely famous enough for it.

I was recently thinking about him because of his Big Bang Theory guest role. But on TV, he looked ok. Yes, the twitter pictures are bad, but on the other hand, he is on twitter. Still, someone to keep in the back of your mind.

Old people who look terrible but don't seem to have many health problems are the worst. :/ Add them or not, add them or not?

But is he interesting enough?

Probably at the moment no but in the next couple of years I think so. After Al Molinaro dies?

Bob Newhart's chances of dying presumably depend on if Shelley Berman dies two weeks beforehand.

You misunderstand. I mean no reflection on his entertainment value.

 

No, I just think that there are far too many topics here, many overlapping.

I feel that most individuals only justify their own topic if they are regularly newsworthy, or if they are known to be chronically or terminally ill.

Thus the Royals are worth following because they are always in the news.

People who lead somewhat self-destructive lifestyles, eg Gazza.

Just being famous isn't enough - there needs to be guaranteed traffic, otherwise the thread stagnates and gets forgotten.

Yeah, I thought that there was, too. If you can find it, then just merge mine with it.

I had a search, couldn't find another thread for him, although he's been mentioned in various other threads.

Substitute "mildly amusing" for "brilliant" and I could agree with this.

I highly doubt Bob is going anywhere anytime soon. He’s been very active lately. I saw him perform last year and he killed with every joke. But then again, his friend Don Rickles was the same way at the end of his life

Did an interview with Ben Mankiewicz and looks really emaciated in the face. Maybe it's just age?

Definitely will have him in my Top 50 next year, if he makes it.  His face is noticeably gaunt, and although he's still mentally very sharp, his voice is more hoarse-sounding as well.  At least he showed he could stand up during the interview, but he unfortunately doesn't look good.
