"Hi, Bob" by Bob Newhart

Comments [0]

HiBob88-year-old Bob Newhart sits down with other comedians to discuss the art of comedy and their experiences as comedians.

Hi, Bob by Bob Newhart exists only as an audiobook, so it sounds more like a 4-hour podcast than a traditional book.

The audio cuts between conversations with Will Ferrell, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, Judd Apatow, Conan O'Brien, Sarah Silverman, and Marc Maron - often with Bob repeating the same questions to different comics. We hear the stories of these comedians and of Bob himself (the oldest of the group), who shares what it was like to break into comedy in the days before comedy clubs. You can hear the age in Newhart's voice, but you also can treasure his experience of 60+ years in this field.

Hi, Bob is informal, informative, and very funny.
