Bob Newhart is one of the most successful and beloved comedians of all-time. Famed for his remarkable deadpan delivery, Newhart's track record as a performer is unparalleled, encompassing a string of best-selling albums as well as two of the most acclaimed and long-running sitcoms in television history. His debut LP, The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart, appeared in early 1960; its success was unprecedented, becoming the first comedy record ever to top the Billboard album charts. Newhart became an overnight star and quickly graduated from selling out nightclubs to selling out theaters. Later in the year, the follow-up, The Button-Down Mind Strikes Back!, also proved phenomenally popular, and for over eight months, the albums held down both the number one and number two spots on the charts. After a third successful record, 1961's Behind the Button-Down Mind, Newhart made his first foray into television with a variety and sketch comedy program. That year also marked Newhart's feature-film debut in a supporting role in the wartime drama Hell Is for Heroes, followed in 1963 by the conversational LP Bob Newhart Faces Bob Newhart. After two more albums, 1965's Windmills Are Weakening and 1966's This Is It, he gradually receded from the nightclub stage. After accepting a string of supporting roles in films, including 1970's On a Clear Day You Can See Forever and Catch-22, he returned to television in 1972 with another offering titled The Bob Newhart Show. This one, a sitcom featuring Newhart as Chicago psychologist Bob Hartley, proved remarkably successful. It was an instant hit and aired through 1978, at which point its star felt the series had run its course. In 1982, he resurfaced with the series Newhart, another massively successful effort, which ran until 1990. In 1997, he released his first album in over three decades: titled The Button-Down Concert. It featured all-new live recordings of the material first presented on the original 1960 Button-Down Mind LP. More recent credits include The Big Bang Theory and Hot in Cleveland. After all these years, Bob Newhart is still buttoned down - and still performing strong. Legend - and then some - that's Bob Newhart!
