Absolutely hilarious.

I was reminded of this comic artist by an episode of Mad Men in which they are gathered around a record player listening to a recording of his act, I promptly decided to look up the availability of his material in a more modern format and here it was.

Some of the material, the more famous such as The Driving Instructor, is available on YouTube if you would like to give it a listen to test run the content to see if it is the kind of humour that you like. The sound quality is great, it may have been recorded live, remastered or recorded from the original record recordings but it is clearly audible and audience noise does not detract in any way from the content delivered by Bob.

There are bound to be people who may seize upon minor details, such as The Driving Instructor sketch featuring a woman driver, to suggest that the comedy is chauvinistic or dated in terms of social attitudes but that would be unfair whether or not it could ever be proven that this was significant at all. Its not what I found made for laughs either.

The sketches are usually telephone conversations or "overheard dialogue", I dont know the extent to which its scripted or improvised but it is really and truly belly laughs and laugh out loud funny stuff. Like the "sales pitch" of Walter Raleigh's discovers to a sketpical and incredulous public back in England, its not possible to say more without providing spoilers which I know some people find highly disagreeable in a review, or another reflecting upon the fact that teams of experts are always deployed to defuse unexploded bombs, well, what if some pretty inexpert guys are called to respond instead?

This is good clean funny humour which is likely to appeal across any age divide and provide a great spoken word accompaniment to any road trip or journey.

Loved it when I heard this material on cassette a long time ago, and returned to it after Bob Newhart's appearance on Big Bang Theory and it still makes me laugh. Even though this is only the audio, Bob Newhart's clever writing paints a vivid picture of what is happening. Wonderful stuff.

This CD contains all his best stuff and was by far the lowest priced of those available. What more can I say : the man was a genius.

This brings back memories of listening to Bob Newhart on the Radio years ago! I know I sound like 'an old woman' - I am - but the humour was good natured, clean and no bad language - what a contrast to a lot of todays 'so called' comedians.

Bought this for my husband who always loved the Driving Instructor recording. It made him laugh just as much as the first time he heard it.

Extremely funny. Excellent for anyone who needs a good laugh. Be careful if you are driving though! a fit of laughter could be a problem
