Legendary comedian/actor Bob Newhart brings his signature deadpan style to Agua Caliente Casino Resort and Spa Saturday March 16.
Newhart first came to the public's attention in the 1960s when his comedy album "The Button Down Mind" went to No. 1 on Billboard's pop charts. He followed up that international success with "The Button Down Mind Strikes Back!"
The popularity of his albums led to film roles and his first sitcom "The Bob Newhart Show." He starred as a psychologist surrounded by an eclectic mix of patients and staff.
The series ran for six seasons and to this day is one of the funniest shows of all time and is the torchbearer for workplace sitcoms like "Cheers" and "Frasier."
His next series was just as successful and just as funny. "Newhart" starred Bob as a Vermont innkeeper dealing with an eclectic mix of staff, guests and locals.
Newhart brilliantly brought both shows togehter in the "Newhart" series finale, which is considered one of the best finales in TV history.
Despite the popularity and critical acclaim they received, neither show ever won an Emmy.
In recent years Newhart has appeared in the films "In & Out," "Elf," "The Librarian" TV movies and had a touching role in an episode of "NCIS."
He's pretty much the definition of Hollywood legend.
