I Shouldn't Even Be Doing This
And Other Things That Strike Me as FunnyBook - 2006
There has never been another comedian like Bob Newhart. His comedy albums, movies, and two hit television series have made him a national treasure and placed him firmly in the pantheon of comedy legends. Now, at last, Newhart puts his world view on paper. Never a punch-line comic, always more of a storyteller, he tells anecdotes from throughout his life and career, including his beginnings as an accountant, the groundbreaking success of his comedy albums, and his fifteen years on primetime television. He also gives his wry, comedic twist to a multitude of topics, including golf, drinking, and family holidays.--From publisher description.
