If there was an Agree button I would have pressed that - sadly he won't be with us Christmas 2021 - clever funny man.

 

Yeah he looks worse than my grandad did on his own death bed.

Ughhh.. cancer face?

you think it's cancer ? it could be… 

he was under my radar for my 2021 list, I wasn't sure to include him but based on that interview, it's a sure lock for next year shadow list

on a side note, is there any thread here about famous bobs ? we had a few Bobs on last years list and some that may worth an inclusion : Bob Dole, Bob Barker, Bob Newhart now, Bob Dylan, Bob Cousy, Bob Pettit, Bob Weir…

Although I've just gone back to first post on the thread back in September 2015 and he looked 'kinda ghastly' then and 5 years later he's still here so maybe he has been sporting the sunken, body riddled with cancer cheeks look for a few years?

Looks awful. However, he still laughs and talks well so 50/50

Feels like somewhere between 6-18 months left.

Question for the UK folks: exactly how popular is Bob Newhart, his comedy routines, and his sitcoms in the UK? Just curious.

Personally, I had a few if his albums ( yes, albums. I'm old)which were pretty funny.  Can't say I've seen any of his sitcoms, so can't really comment on that.  I couldn't really comment on how popular he is.

His comedy albums (or at least certain sketches - Bus Driver etc) used to get a fair bit of airplay back when DJs were given a bit of independence and could do their own thing occasionally. As far as I know they went down well.. I don't ever remember seeing his sitcoms on UK TV, though I was a fan of Newhart (Hi, I'm Larry, this my brother Darryl & this is my other brother Darryl) when I saw it in the USA.

That's all I know.  Back in my student days there would be the odd time you were round at someone's house and they would dig out an album or tape with those on.  The driving instructor and the one about tobacco are others I remember.  Haven't heard any of them in decades though.

As has been said, some of us of a certain age remember his comedy routines like 'The Driving Instructor & Bus Conductor.

Personally, I always thought they were funny, his delivery was immaculate.

Walter Raleigh routine was one of the funniest ones I've heard.

I still have one of his LPs and also a cassette recording of a radio show of his, timing is perfect, so good that he should really have been British.

He looks a bit like Prince Philip a year or two before he died.
