Bob Newhart is an acclaimed American actor and comedian known to amuse the audience with his grumpy voice rather than his jokes. After serving the army for a couple of years, he landed up at a job of a copy editor. There he wrote comedy sketches for radio shows and also recorded some of his random phone calls which he used as audition tapes. This helped him sign a contract with the ‘Warner Bros Records’ where he was advised to turn his recorded material into stand-up to gain fame and popularity. These acts were collected into a comedy album called 'The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart'. It became the first comedy album to top the ‘Billboard Chart’ and also brought him his first ‘Grammy Award’.

After bringing out six successful seasons of the series, Bob took a break from the limelight. He returned back with a comedy series ‘Newhart’ which justified his reputation as a comedian.
